Flipgrid is a video learning platform, acquired by Microsoft in 2018.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/va/pc/58QPGQ2BI1JN.JPEGCatch #FlipgridFeverCurrently, our school is using Flipgrid across and within grade levels for various topics and projects. We recently used it to build a school community within our staff by completing a #Fliphunt to introduce incoming teachers to vitals points and people around the school. To begin the school year, students have also participated in a Meet & Greet #Fliphunt to build relationships in their classroom.,Flipgrid does an excellent job of amplifying student voice by giving students a voice in a variety of ways, using their mouth, drawing their responses, and demonstrating their learning on their Flipgrid board. Flipgrid allows teachers to share their best practices and lessons by uploading ideas into the Disco Library located on the Flipgrid platform. Flipgrid allows students to build community and connect with others by following and participating in #FlipgridFever on Twitter and Instagram.,At this time, Flipgrid is doing things right by listening to its users, teachers, and students.,10,The positive impact Flipgrid has had on my students is amazing! Students who would otherwise get lost in the crowd, have their voices heard. Students who are typically quiet, have a stage all their own and they shine. A student of mine who was mute in class broke out of his shell and used Flipgrid to share jokes.,10,10,Edmodo, Renaissance Star 360, iMovieFlipgrid is Great.Flipgrid is being used district-wide with students, teachers and even administrators for staff meetings. Flipgrid provides an opportunity for students to record their thoughts and ideas based on a teacher directed question. Teachers can then use it to assess students competency in a given topic or get relevant feedback from their students. Flipgrid gives a voice to some of our most timid students and also provides a window into a child's day to their parents if teachers choose to share the activity.,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.,Fligrid can improve using mixed tapes. I feel if it's not pointed out, teachers don't necessarily know it can be done. When setting up the topic, some of the personalization choices are hard to find or down the page. It would be easier to choose the most used settings and making them the default - like the privacy settings. I also believe the word Grid should be substituted with class. Teachers are always confused about what the Grid and topic are.,10,This is hard to judge in a school district. We don't have hard data.Students find their voices!Flipgrid is being used across our school district with both staff and students in a K-12 public school system. It allows our students to have a voice, responding to prompts, completing assignments, or simply reflecting on their learnings. The digital video component allows for communication beyond writing or typing, enhancing learning and teaching through public speaking, using emotion, and displaying understanding.,Student voice is a primary focus and enhanced through the use of Flipgrid. Flipgrid is a fun tool that the students enjoy using, simply through the "selfie" and social-media feel. It is easy and simple to use by both staff and students.,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,10,Flipgrid allows students who may not raise their hand or have a voice in class to participate and share their ideas, thoughts and viewsStudent Voice with FlipgridFlipgrid is a great way to have my students reflect on questions that they may be apprehensive to answer in front of their peers. The ability to provide an answer directly to their teacher also enables a student to use their voice versus being unsure when writing their answer. I have used these for fun activities to learn how a students summer break was to an evaluation of a unit to make sure the student achieved their goal.,The ability for the students to write notes to read off of prevents them from saying a bunch of "um.." "uh..." Student Voice is empowered with Flipgrid. The quietest kids in the class are able to speak knowing that it is just them, the computer screen, and their teacher. Flipgrid makes it fun by providing students to personalize their selfie with stickers.,I wish students could log into Flipgrid and download their previous videos. Need integration of grades into more learning management systems There is always an introduction topic for every grid. I wish this could be turned off after using Flipgrid for a while.,10,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.Student Voice - Anytime AnywhereOne of the hottest applications out in education right now. Teachers throughout my district are using Flipgrid in their classrooms to spark student voice. This gives students a platform that they are familiar with, similar to social media applications such as Facebook live, and Snapchat, in which they can record themselves doing something. Our World Language teachers and English teachers have really taken to Flipgrid as a way for students to show their learning on a topic. ESL students enjoy this as well, as they can record themselves reading a segment from a text and share with the teacher for feedback. I have also used Flipgrid to deliver engaging professional development opportunities or as a way for teachers to share their own learning.,Enhances student voice and gives them a platform to share their voice with others. Helps bring attention to the quiet students or those hesitant to share or ask questions. Easy navigation and simple for teachers to create assignments, embed materials, link to Google apps, etc. Teachers can keep track of al student video submissions right from within Flipgrid. Not need to manage it anywhere else! Offers ways for students who might be hesitant to show their face, ways to hide it with clip art, etc.,This is small, but I've had a difficult time grabbing the embed code from Flipgrid and embedding it into a Google Site or LMS. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Maybe there can be LTI integration with LMS platforms?,10,We have had great improvement with our ESL students who need to practice speaking allowed. Flipgrid has given them a platform to record themselves and afford the teacher a place to watch the videos and leave comments/feedback. English teachers can verify whether students have read and truly understand a text. The platform has afforded us a mobile platform for students to record themselves as opposed to building or having a physical space for recording.,Skype, Google Hangouts and appear.in,Schoology, appear.in, Plutio#FlipgridFeverFlipgrid is an amazing resource that allows students and teachers to share their views, opinions, and knowledge with one another. I have used Flipgrid for Faculty to share ideas with one another, for them to connect with students, and to gain background on people's knowledge of a topic. Teachers use it for students to share responses with them, to interact with one another, and to have a voice in their learning. The video feature is actively used in education today, and makes learning fun and engaging for all ages. Primary students through adults enjoy interacting with the easy to use platform, and watching each other's responses as well.,Integrates with other resources in education. App smashing with Newsela, Wakelet, etc. Allows students to have a voice in their learning. Helps in sharing with families and other educators what students are learning. Fun and easy to learn.,I think Flipgrid is great. They listen to users to continuously make the product better!,10,An amazing tool that is easy to use, therefore a great buy-in for faculty and students to use.,

  • Flipgrid does an excellent job of amplifying student voice by giving students a voice in a variety of ways, using their mouth, drawing their responses, and demonstrating their learning on their Flipgrid board.

  • Flipgrid allows students to build community and connect with others by following and participating in #FlipgridFever on Twitter and Instagram.
Flipgrid is well suited in EVERY aspect of learning and teaching. It's even welcomed at parties, gatherings, and team buildings. At this time, my youngest daughter uses it for her personal journal which allows her to speak, sing, draw, and act out her thoughts. I have yet to find a non-use of Flipgrid.

  • 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.
Flipgrid is well suited to be used in classrooms where students are able to record themselves independently. Students can use Flipgrid to review a book or an activity. Students can also use Flipgrid to reteach a concept. The teacher can then post the video to their website or classroom. This promotes student buy-in and raises motivation for having your video posted. I think this also gets students excited to showcase a skill they are good at.

Flipgrid is more difficult to use with adults. Most adults are self-conscious recording themselves and can even be suspicious of the person wanting a recorded answer.

Flipgrid has been great for reading levels, world language understanding, and debates or public speaking. The ability to be used in any content area and grade level has been amazing. Staff love having access to their students responses, the opportunity to provide feedback instantly, and the control over how it is viewed and shared.

Flipgrid is the ultimate teacher tool for Student Voice and allowing students to share answers or their feelings towards a topic. I have been using it with students in grades three to five and all students are able to learn how to use Flipgrid very quickly. It is very easy to watch the videos of students by placing limits such as 60 seconds on the video and extend it up to 5 minutes.

This is one of those apps that can be applied to any grade level and any subject matter. I have also had great success using Flipgrid for staff and teacher professional development. Flipgrid can be used 1) as a way to practice interview style questions 2) as a way to practice IB curriculum 3) as a way to learn about students at the beginning of a year 4) as a way for staff to collaborate during a book discussion.

  • Helps in sharing with families and other educators what students are learning.
  • Fun and easy to learn.
Flipgrid used in any subject area is beneficial. Starting in younger grades allows for more application in older grades.
