Educators use Flipgrid to create message boards where students video record their answers instead of typing them out for more interactive and engaging learning.
This free, website-based platform works by letting teachers create tiled “grids.”
Teachers pose discussion questions and students’ video replies appear in a grid display below. Flipgrid is useful for teachers who want to emulate in-person conversations from a distance, but also without the pressure of a live classroom.
If you’re a teacher or student who has posted a video to Flipgrid, but would like to re-do it, deleting a video question or response is easy.
