Learn about FlipGrid

What is the tool?

Flipgrid is a video discussion community for your classroom that supercharges your students’ voices. You add the topics, your students respond with short videos, and everyone engages! FlipGrid allows for video contributions up to 90 seconds in length.

How was it used at RRU?

Flipgrid allows students in GBLD 505 to engage in a deeper set of introductions along with an opening question on expectations to set the stage for their on-campus retreat in the middle of the course. The opening question in this Flipgrid is:

"Who am I as a global leader and what do I hope to learn through this retreat about myself and others?"

Flipgrid example

Other suggested uses could be:

  • Online discussion board
  • Class introductions
  • Foreign language practice
  • Reflection
  • Social learning
  • Hear multiple ways of solving a problem

Try it out 

Now it's your turn! Contribute a video to the FlipGrid in this unit to talk about how you would use FlipGrid in your classroom to engage students.
