Flipgrid

Flipgrid is a video response tool that is used to create discussions among all students within your classroom. Teachers post a topic or question via text or video and the students respond to the prompt. Flipgrid also gives students the ability to comment on their classmates' responses.

Key Features:

  • All of your videos are located in one location.
  • You can Freeze a Topic to continue sharing the videos but prevent new recordings.
  • Student comments can be turned on or off.
