Flipgrid.com allows teachers to create an online space (or grid) on which students can answer questions and discuss information through recorded videos. It is a simple way to have students respond to questions as long as they have a device with a camera and microphone available. Once a teacher creates a FlipGrid, students can visit the grid to record their video in response to the teacher's question. Recordings are limited to 90 seconds.
I like Flipgrid.com because it gives students a chance to answer and express themselves using verbal communication skills. This is empowering for those students that are verbal and visual learners or who struggle to get information and ideas in writing. There are also built in features that help the teacher to moderate the content that is being generated. Teachers can password protect the information, require a user to submit an email, and choose to moderate all videos before posted if needed. Flipgrid is available as an App or web-based.
Educators can try Flipgrid.com for free for 30 days. Unfortunately after the 30 days, it is a subscription product. The educator subscription is $65 per year and there is organization pricing as well.
