Comments on Flipgrid in 2021

“FlipGrid is a simple way for students to create fun videos to show their understanding of content. If you want to see your students’ personalities come out, this is one of the ways to do it. I would prompt my students with a simple task and have them show me they could do a math skill in the video. Many students would take on the role of a teacher and teach in the video how to do the skill. Some of the funnier ones were when students would act like news media personnel and present the information that way. FlipGrid also does have a screen recording feature for students to use if they do not want to show their faces. This program puts all the recordings under the same subject created so all videos are in the same place that is submitted for that topic.” Darren Vance, Middle School Math Teacher, USA

“Provide students with a voice” Ben Martinez, K12 teacher, USA

“Love the ability to record myself ….” Josipa Erhardt, teacher, Croatia

“Flipgrid is easy to use, engages students, is versatile, and is fun for the students. I use it to take feedback from other educators and students, and it can be used to support other educators as well.” Majlinda Qosja, teacher, Albania

“This is a video response that groups all responses to a question or assignment into one place. Videos can be public or private. If you are looking for an app that can get students interacting with one another in a non-live setting, look no further. I can also check for basic understanding after a reading time and easily listen to verbal responses” Librarian, USA, 2020

“A good tool for engaging older students in interactive discussions about class topics.” Sara Carlesimo, Web Designer/Teacher, France, 2020

“Easy to use. I can create and respond to others from my phone.” Teacher, 2020

“Allows interaction between tutors and learners and peer feedback.” Academic Leader, 2020
