Brand new to Flipgrid? You’ve come to the right place!
Flipgrid is a video discussion platform that helps educators see and hear from every student in class and foster a fun and supportive social learning environment. Here’s everything you need to know to get started…
When you set up your free educator account at Flipgrid.com, you’ll first create a Grid for your class. Grids are the canvas you will use to post discussion Topics, to which your students will share short video Responses.
A Grid is the “home” for your class in Flipgrid.
Within your Grid you can post unlimited discussion prompts. We call those Topics.
Topics can include a description, video, GIFs, images, and links - everything you need to get your students talking!
Your students then respond to your Topic With that, you’re ready for your students to post a video Response! Just copy/paste a link to your Grid into Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Schoology, or whatever you use to communicate with your class. Students can access the Grid on any computer with a webcam or on a tablet/mobile device via our free mobiles apps. Our social-media style recorder parallels that of your students’ favorite social apps, allowing them to have FUN while they share their voice!
Once you’re ready to explore more, head over the the Educator Innovation Station! You’ll find a collection of ideas and resources from our three Educator Innovation Leads, Ann, Jornea, and Jess!
