Ratings and ReviewsSee All
My students love using FlipGrid, they don’t see completing an assignment on the app as work. Students are excited to engage with the platform and perfect their videos. The fact that they can re-record until they are satisfied and use emojis and skins to enhance their image, they feel free to express themselves. FlipGrid is a wonderful tool for individual students and groups to utilize. It can be used on any device, in or out of the classroom. I link mine to Google Classroom so it’s very easy for students to access.
Students look forward to seeing what others have created. The interactive process of reviewing, reacting, and providing commentary are additional skills that FlipGrid promotes.
Additionally, FlipGrid provides a zillion ideas and templates for teachers to use. Just spending time on the site you learn how to enhance your curriculum. I just completed a book talk, and am getting ready for my students to share about their favorite part of a novel for a review. I plan to next assign different literary elements to different students for a FlipGrid that can be used to teach material. I will start next semester off with a get to know me FlipGrid. There are so many uses!
FlipGrid for Education
FlipGrid has been a game-changer. This app combines everything kids like: making videos, social media type format (but safe), it gives a voice to EVERYONE. If you are worried that it will be too scary for your shy/quiet kids....don’t. Students can draw a picture, show a picture while saying what they know. It allows re-dos, emojis, and selfies!! Teachers can control the time....so you get a quick, formative or summative assessment of what they know. I have used it in so many ways....students record their learning, show a video of what they made (example: show rollercoasters they made to demonstrate potential and kinetic energy). I have also used it with my PLN on Twitter with fellow educators and getting to know each other. Lastly, I have been recording myself before each quiz and I give a 3 Minute Flip of everything they need to know - so much great feedback on that. Oh.....and AR, we have used that too. FlipGrid is also SUPER responsive on Twitter. Such a great app and company.
Flipgrid is a Favorite
Flipgrid is one of my favorite tools to recommend to other teachers. It is an all-around great tool, providing for differentiation, student voice, engagement, peer feedback, and saving time. It is made for students to quickly and easily join and record their videos. This is a game changer in the classroom, especially for those students who hate to write. They can discuss, share ideas, provide proofs, and explain. Then, they have fun ways to dress up their videos with stickers and filters. For those students that are even more self-conscious, they can use the white board instead of recording their own face. It is easy for teachers to use, too. They have their own login to manage their grids that make it easy to respond to the students. If you have a problem, the people supporting this app are so helpful. They really do want it to work well for you. Just look at all the great reviews they have gotten.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
