So what is Flipgrid anyway?

You've heard the buzz... Now how can Flipgrid help my students?

Flipgrid is the leading video discussion platform used by millions of PreK to PhD educators, students, families, and organizations in more than 150 countries! Create a Grid (that’s your classroom or group), add Topics to spark the discussion, and your community builds a dialogue as they share short video responses. Super simple. Super powerful.

Sign up for your FREE teacher account at flipgrid.com.

Then follow these 3 easy steps to start the discussion!

  1. A grid is your classroom or community of learners. Name it after your class and set the security settings. Only those with the grid URL can find your grid.
  2. Topics are the questions or themes your students discuss. At least 1 topic is required to start, such as class introductions, but you can add unlimited topics throughout the year!
  3. Students do not create accounts on Flipgrid. Just share the grid URL for easy access on Macs, PCs, or Chromebooks. Students with mobile devices can access your grid using the free Flipgrid app.

You can upgrade to Flipgrid Classroom for 60 days at no charge! The code is HOLLYCLARK. Upgrade by going to billing under the Account Settings tab.
