    I'm working on my ISTE Standards Certification and am looking for any tech resources, tools, activities, ideas to help build community and belonging in my Middle School classroom. I appreciate any suggestions!

    You could start off each day with a Flipgrid question.  Students can respond to the question, then respond to each other.  The Flipgrid Disco Library has lots of topic ideas and conversation starters.  This gives students a strong sense of voice while teaching them to respect each other.  You could even get other classrooms/students involved.
