WURRLYedu's Teaching Tools Now on Flipgrid Discovery Library
LOS ANGELES, December 1, 2020 – WURRLYedu is proud to announce that its music education content will now be available to millions of educators, students, and families in the Flipgrid community through the Flipgrid Discovery Library.
Flipgrid’s Discovery Library enables partners and educators to share topics for the community to explore and use with their own learners. WURRLYedu’s culturally relevant lesson plans, videos, and tips will enable educators to implement a variety of interactive music lessons with their students on over 40 topics including:
-Artist song tutorial videos featuring artists and industry professionals, including Lee Brice, Franky Perez, and more, teaching students to sing and play some of their favorite songs.
-Instructional videos on vlogging and podcasting, making a music video, creating a music review, improving stage presence, along with the history of different music genres.
-Other inspiring videos that equip students to use music to express emotion, or to practice a variety of musical skills.
“WURRLYedu is thrilled to partner with Flipgrid. We both seek to empower educators as they help students amplify their voices and respect the diverse voices of others,” said Nadine Levitt, founder and CEO of WURRLYedu. “Our new musical content in the Discovery Library is an extension of what teachers already love about Flipgrid.”
"With so many music educators and arts-related learning communities using Flipgrid for in-person, distance, and hybrid learning, we are so grateful that WURRLYedu is providing these communities with free high-quality content in the Flipgrid Discovery Library to help empower the voices of students in such a creative way,” said Chris Mathew, Senior Partnership Manager at Flipgrid.
WURRLYedu offers the largest catalog of popular music in K12 which means no more searching for copyright approved tracks for student-created videos. Flipgrid and WURRLYedu are both committed to providing choice to students and engaging tools for educators as they are teaching in a remote or hybrid learning environment.
Flipgrid partners with organizations around the world to curate topics for the Discovery Library including Minecraft Education Edition, the Metropolitan Museum of Art to spark Art discussions, or empower learners to strive for diversity and inclusion with the Langston League.
