FlipGrid - Few reminders on creation of Grids as well as some options to consider

In case you have never used FlipGrid, it  is a website that allows teachers to create "grids" to for video discussions. Each grid is similar to a message board where teachers can pose questions, called "topics," and their students can post video responses that appear in a grid format.

As of the Summer of 2018 FlipGrid is free and you can create as many grids and topics as you like.

Embedded below is a 2 minute and 53 second YouTube tutorial showing what it looks like from start to finish from an educator's point of view.

I also added a few tips especially for those that teach younger grades. The option for liking videos and number of videos viewed is definitely worth looking into. Maybe having a discussion with your class about likes and number of times watching video would be worth your while.

Take care,
