Overall Satisfaction with Flipgrid

One 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?
  • 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.
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.
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.
