Likelihood to Recommend

Flipgrid

I'd greatly recommend it to any teacher. It can be used in a variety of scenarios but mainly for speaking activities. It can work for example as an oral exam or oral evaluation, this I make them hiding it from other students' views. I also use it to analyze and comment about videos and readings. When students start talking and liking it, it's a killer. They start asking when is the next forum going to happen. However, something I do not recommend it for is role plays or collective readings, which I have tried and it fails miserably. This is because of timing, students upload the video at different moments and it is a hot mess. However, I am fine with the first part because it works pretty well.

Powtoon

Powtoon is a very capable suite of tools that help a developer create training videos that look way better than they should. I've used it to create fun, attention-getting commercials for new topics, I've used it to enhance what would otherwise be boring step-by-step tutorials, and I've used it to create all manner of "Explainer videos" for all kinds of topics - this is where it EXCELS!In my opinion, its biggest limitations are limits on imported video (max of 90 seconds), which mean that you have to do a lot of extra work to break up and import anything of substantive length. And because it presents your personal library of imported images and audio ONLY sequentially, it's VERY LIMITED in the re-usability of those assets - it's way faster to just import a new instance of an image and audio than to try to find it in your library.

Pros

Flipgrid

  • Flipgrid allows teachers to post a question to students on how they accomplished a particular task. This is important because it shows the students process and also gives them an opportunity to teach others.
  • Flipgrid allows teachers to make a "mixed tape" of student responses and use it for assessment. This allows teachers to show parents and administrators whether student growth.
  • Flipgrid has a great feature that allows teachers to post their Flipgrids with the community. The community can reuse the questions and edit them. This allows collaboration among fellow teachers.
  • Not only can teachers post questions but they can also record themselves asking the question. This is great for non-readers and English Language Learners.

Cons

Flipgrid

  • If there was more of an admin-panel to customize settings for our district and manage our staff.
  • The ability to "default" settings across Flipgrid and not per-grid or topic

Powtoon

  • As often is the case, the free version includes a watermark on all published products.
  • Sometimes the video templates may be too glib or light-hearted for the message being shared (like about discrimination in the workplace or COVID).

Flipgrip is great for supporting educators. They provide opportunities for teachers to learn the program and become ambassadors for the program. They are also responsive to questions and concerns through many different modes. That includes online communities, email, and Facebook communities. They are eager to meet and troubleshoot with you and are also eager to meet educators at conferences and meetings.

I have never needed the support feature. As I mentioned, everything was intuitive to me however I have taught myself Adobe, Final Cut and iMovie so most of these programs became intuitive.

Alternatives Considered

Flipgrid

Flipgrid is a game changer, working in a similar fashion to these other applications, but offering much more in terms of teacher control and implementation inside the classroom. Teachers can create lesson plans that incorporate options for Flipgrid to be utilized as a formative assessment tool to better gauge student comprehension and understanding.

I find Powtoon to be more accessible and easier to learn. Also, their tech support is amazing! I have had multiple problems solved by just asking for support.

This product is straightforward to implement and share across our building and district. As a large district, it was not difficult to train staff and have them feel at ease implementing the program.

Return on Investment

Flipgrid

  • For a student who may not voice their opinion in class, Flipgrid provides a safe way for a student to be confident with their voice.
  • When collecting evidence that students achieved goals, I can share this to administrators for feedback on observations.
  • Flipgrid has been a positive experience that allows me to create multiple topics within a unit.

  • I am not saying it was a bad investment but I did not get the return I expected.
  • I considerably increased the number of clients after using this platform.
  • The price for which you pay to use its functions unlimitedly is acceptable and adapts to the use that you want to give it.
