Flipgrid

What does it do?

Flipgrid is Video question and answer… You record yourself on video asking a question ask a question – then students leave video replies, you end up with a video class discussion.

 

Why?

This works well when students are given time to think about their replies – so makes it a useful tool for flipped learning. No more pressure to put your hand up and answer in front of the rest of the class, students can take their time and think about their answers, recording them on their phone or device. If only it had Google Log In and Classroom Integration…
