About Flipgrid

Flipgrid is an extremely user-friendly teaching tool that can be utilized across grade levels, academic disciplines, and learners. It helps facilitate student-led learning and extend learning and thinking. Students are able to access higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy and serve as teachers to one another. It also allows students to practice and build their social skills and connect with one another, fostering a virtual community.

Flipgrid has been a priceless resource to engage with my students and support their academic and social emotional needs during the Corona virus. Flipgrid has allowed for extensions, accommodations, and community building.

Teacher Review

Flipgrid is a FREE tool that allows teachers to upload discussion-style questions and students to answer by adding video responses. It helps teachers use technology in the right way. 

With Flipgrid, teachers post discussion questions to a class Grid, and students respond with short, recorded videos. Students can add a title, one linked file, and stickers to their videos. Flipgrid's class Grid functions as a message board where students can watch their peers' video responses as they appear in a shared display. Flipgrid emphasizes social features, with student-to-student replies and custom reactions, similar to Instagram and Snapchat. 

With Flipgrid, teachers can share student videos with families through a private link. Family members can view the teacher's topic prompt, watch their student’s response, and download the video. There's even an option to invite family members to participate in Grids, the discussion-style questions.

Flipgrid has custom integrations with Canvas and Microsoft Teams apps and can embed videos into Google Classroom, Schoology, Edmodo, and more. 

Flipgrid provides extensive teacher tools, from instructional videos to full walk-throughs of how to use the site for a variety of subject areas (including STEAM and physical education). Teachers can also use Flipgrid's Topic Discovery Library and filter by subject and age to search thousands of Topic templates shared by other educators.  

Pricing

Flipgrid has three pricing levels, ranging from free to $200 per year. The free version includes one Grid with limited features, and the two paid levels for classrooms offer unlimited Grids and many more features.
