How to Use Flipgrid – From Sign-up to Video Responses

Flipgrid is one of the most popular ed tech tools to emerge in the last couple of years. It can be used as tool for video-based formative assessment, it can be used as an alternative to a classroom YouTube channel, and it can be used to connect classrooms around the world. Those are just a few of the ways that teachers use Flipgrid.

At this time last year I published a video about how to get started using Flipgrid in your classroom. In the ensuing twelve months Flipgrid added a bunch of new features. But the most exciting update of all was that Flipgrid was acquired by Microsoft who then immediately made all of Flipgrid’s features free for everyone! So to reflect that fact that all of Flipgrid’s features are free, I made an updated video on how to get started using Flipgrid.

This video covers all of the basics that you need to know to get started using Flipgrid in your classroom. In the video you’ll learn:

  • How to sign-up.
  • How to create a grid.
  • How to create a topic.
  • The difference between a grid and a topic. 
  • How to post prompts for students. 
  • How to post responses to your students’ videos. 

Check out my YouTube channel for more Flipgrid tutorial videos including how to create IDs for students who don’t have email accounts and how to grant guest access to Flipgrid topics.
