How to Use Flipgrid in Your Classroom

Do your students love using technology in the classroom? If so, Flipgrid is an awesome free tool! Flipgrid is a free video discussion site (and app) that allows teachers and students to interact in a fun, social way using video. In this week’s episode of the Tech Tools for Teachers podcast, we talk all about Flipgrid. We’ll discuss how to use it in your classroom, and we’ll give you some tips and tricks for getting the most out of it. So tune in now to learn more!


It’s been awhile since we last spoke about Flipgrid—in fact, we last spoke about it on Episode 22 and Episode 48—but it’s a fan favorite and they have made SO MANY upgrades since our last chat.

Teachers can use Flipgrid for all sorts of interaction in the classroom, including to support student reflection, presentations, book talks, explanations and so much more! It can be used in any subject and is really easy share with others.

Flipgrid is also a great tool for staff professional development! Teachers can share their ideas with one another within a school or district and you can watch the videos at your convenience!

Have students learning virtually? Flipgrid videos are a great way to communicate and connect with your students whether they’re in person or at home.

Students will be familiar with many of the video editing features in Flipgrid. It’s much like many of the tools in TikTok and Instagram Stories, and it will encourage your students to be creative! There is a huge variety of backgrounds, stickers, emojis, gifs and effects to make student videos their own. When students create a video to explain their ideas, they have all the tools at their fingertips.

Many students also like the fact in that in Flipgrid, they don’t have to show their face all of the time. There are so many creative options that they can use to hide their face while still sharing their ideas! They can cover their face with a fun sticker, use a board and draw without their face on screen, and so many other creative options.

If you haven’t had the chance to try out Flipgrid yet, do so! You will be surprised at all of the ways you can create!

Watch the video, above, to see a full walkthrough! Your students will flip out over Flipgrid!
