FlipgridAR is LIVE: transform family nights, homework, school events, book reviews, Science Fairs, student art galleries, language classrooms, the entire school, ANYWHERE by “sticking” student voice everywhere with FlipgridAR codes.

What is FlipgridAR?

AR stands for augmented reality, and thus the ability to “place” virtual elements in the physical world. In particular with FlipgridAR, you can “stick” ANY Flipgrid video in the world with just a FlipgridAR code and the Flipgrid app. A FlipgridAR code is the magical version of a QR code.

Why FlipgridAR?

Imagine this: families visiting your school wander the hallways filled with your students’ incredible projects. The work is inspiring to say the least and your visitors ponder: what are the stories, processes, and decisions behind each masterpiece? Simply by adding a FlipgridAR code - your guests can hear the answers to those questions and more directly from the brilliant scholars themselves. All your community needs to do is launch the Flipgrid app and tap the QR scanner!

This is simply one example. The possibilities are endless (check out this Wakelet collection!) and we’re so excited to see how you leverage this new addition to the Flipgrid experience!

How do you create FlipgridAR videos?

All you need to do to create a FlipgridAR experience is download the FlipgridAR QR code from ANY Flipgrid video and place in your learning environment. To do so:

  1. Log in to your Educator Admin.

  2. Navigate to the Topic with the video(s) you want to stick in your learning environment.

  3. Download all the video FlipgridAR codes with the “Print Response QR Codes” button or download the FlipgridAR codes to specific videos by clicking the “Share” button.

  4. To view in AR, simply scan the magic FlipgridAR code with the Flipgrid iOS/Android app (Note: some devices do not support FlipgridAR).
