The Blue Whale Challenge is Real, Sad, & Frightening | World of Psychology - 0 views

  •  
    "You can tell someone is playing the game pretty easily, as they will have cuts on their hands with either the number 57 and/or 40 on them. You can check their social media accounts (the game says to use VKontakte, but users are using whatever social media they are currently on) and see if they've posted anything similar to #i_am_whale, a hashtag used in one of the steps of the game. The game is easily defeated by talking to your teen, child, or young adult about their suicidal feelings, and encouraging them to reach out to get help for them through psychotherapy or counseling. It's not an easy conversation to have, but it may be a life-saving talk."

Flipgrid - Video for student engagement and formative assessment - 2 views

    A fun tool to use for introductions. You post a video question and students can post their own videos as well. You can moderate and have the flipgrids be public or private. What a fun tool to use to start the year or even have introductions before you start.
