Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Flipgrid is Great.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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

Student Voice with Flipgrid

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Student Voice - Anytime Anywhere

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • 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?
