Thanks for the introduction to knowledgehook. I have been using desmos to gather student work, and it works fantastic, however there are some limitation, such as space for solving systems. Its nice to be able to find an easy way to view student work that is less intimidating that flipgrid. I frequently survey my students (especially now) to see what is working and what is not, and I am still shocked at how much kids dislike flipgrid, but since switching the knowledgehook, they say that is one of their favorites.
Also, I firmly agree that we cannot allow the virtual learning to be our excuse for why we cannot teach math concepts in an exploritory way. I talk to my students all that time about embracing this as an opportunity to improve ourselves and people and learners, rather than as an excuse for being ok to do less or be less than we would normally be. It would be hypocritical to not do the same as a teacher.
