A New Tool- Flipagram

Luca introduced us to a digital tool that allows us to share photos and videos through a link. Flipgram is a free app that is available for both Apple and Android. If you make one, please share it with us! I've included the link for Luca's most recent Flipagram (about his trip to New Orleans), to get you excited!
