Not great, but not bad… Here’s why
; This was made an auto correct, So flip grid is spelled as in two words ; OK, to be honest, flip grid is not that bad. There’s nothing really special about it so that’s why I’m writing this comment, just to tell you that there’s nothing special. There are some major and minor bug fixes but it’s not that bad, I just don’t like how the creator can like control everything, I understand they do that so a person doesn’t destruct everything, but if you need to, just delete them and undo what they did!!! Again, there are minor and major bug fixes which really annoys me. It’s not SUPER DUPER bad, but you can get extremely annoying at times. Sometimes, I just rage and exit the app. I like how you can make thumbnails and items like that when you post videos and you can name it and make a description! But, I really wish that The videos don’t have to be under a certain amount of time… it is also really hard to edit your video so please work on that flip grid! Overall, it’s an OK app, thank you so much for reading this if you’ve gotten all the way down here because I wrote so much, LOL! Have a great day.

Would call it a lifesaver...!
During spring break, while talk of a nationwide shutdown spread, I began hunting for technology that would help me maintain the hard-earned classroom community that was built throughout the current school year. Fortunately my school is part of a 1:1 district, meaning each student checks out a laptop and hotspot at the beginning of the school year and returns it at the end. This is amazing for sure; however, the hotspot only allows a small percentage of data to be used up each month. Therefore, Google Meet was not going to be a viable option for me. Any type of group video meeting would eat through the kids data right away. Not sure what could work instead, I found an article that included Flipgrid as a resource idea, and OMG was I glad to have found it! Using Flipgrid this past month has kept me and my students ‘in touch’ in SUCH better ways than a Zoom or Google Meeting could have done. I will be using Flipgrid from now on! It is terribly simple for the kids to use (as well as myself!) and they actually love it! I teach literature at an alternative high school- so I’m always looking for different ways to bring the material to the kids and definitely different ways for the kids to demonstrate their understanding. Flipgrid is PERFECT for this! I love the community involved, the assignments already posted/shared, and the ease and simplicity of the planning involved. Thank you Flipgrid!!! 5 stars!

Maybe I like filp grid maybe not it’s really bad.
Flip grid is really good app with emojis and any kind of stuff. I don’t like flip grid at all, because it has bugs and also needs to be re-fixed. The backgrounds are laggy they show the stuff behind you. I think that may has to be un-laggy, just in case nothing shows but just the background, I don’t like the cameras either, it chooses the time for you and I would like it if it had a minute timer chooser, like 10 minutes or 5 or 4 and hours or seconds, I also hate the vidoes, the videos that my class makes my friends there laggy the vidoes are super laggy, it goes like in sounds, and the items you like get to move and size won’t WORK AT ALL , when you try to size it doesn’t work that you have to use all your pressure in. The movement for the emoji doesn’t work either. I doesn’t have anything special about it either, LOL Sorry that you have to read this but I love your creativity but has to fixed,

Not bad but i get insanely frustrated
I have to upload a video for a school project. The uploading process takes way too long and whenever my laptop closes or goes to sleep by itself the upload will say it's taking too long and I need to re-upload it and if the video has 1080p resolution with something like 60fps and high quality, it takes an insanely long amount of time to upload. My video was like that, but my video wouldn't upload at all it would just keep saying it took too long and you need to retry. this is super frustrating to me because I'm trying to get the project in on time and the fact that this app takes this long to upload a four minute video is insane. Apps like TikTok or Snapchat do not take that long for videos to upload even if it's a 10 minute video like on TikTok. I I've uploaded 10 minute videos before and they did not take more than five minutes to upload that usually took 2 to 3 minutes but I've been waiting over seven minutes from a video to upload. I hope this is just a glitch or something wrong with the servers, but please fix it because I'm very frustrated with this.

Flipgrid is a Favorite
Flipgrid is one of my favorite tools to recommend to other teachers. It is an all-around great tool, providing for differentiation, student voice, engagement, peer feedback, and saving time. It is made for students to quickly and easily join and record their videos. This is a game changer in the classroom, especially for those students who hate to write. They can discuss, share ideas, provide proofs, and explain. Then, they have fun ways to dress up their videos with stickers and filters. For those students that are even more self-conscious, they can use the white board instead of recording their own face. It is easy for teachers to use, too. They have their own login to manage their grids that make it easy to respond to the students. If you have a problem, the people supporting this app are so helpful. They really do want it to work well for you. Just look at all the great reviews they have gotten.

Flipgrid is my favorite educational tool! My students use the web version because we they have Chromebooks at school, but I use the app on my iPhone the majority of the time. I am able to do almost everything I need from the app wherever I am. The only feature I cannot use yet is creating Shorts videos but I prefer to do those from my computer anyway. I use the app to create assignments, spark discussions, to make sub plans, and to reply and provide my students with their feedback. The camera is intuitive and easy to use and I can access everything I need. My kindergarten daughter is able to use it as well without much support. The Flipgrid team is always enhancing newer versions and additions as their users provide ideas and feedback, so it is constantly improving with frequent updates. It’s a favorite for me as a teacher and my students are highly engaged every time we use it!

First grade teacher
I’m teaching online due to COVID- and have been using Flipgrid to communist team with my students. They love being able to respond at their leisure, and LOVE seeing each other’s responses as well. They can also communicate with each other by commenting on their peers presentations. I used “disco library” for ideas when I digest got started- there are a million awesome ideas that other teacher have used (and are able to see how many Other teachers used the same ones as well.) There are sooooo many cool features (can assign right to google classroom, can set it up but delay/schedule it’s rollout, you can delete inappropriate responses, record your own, but hide it until you are ready for it to be presented, add pics to the topics..... soo many more. I literally never had an issue with the technology part of using flipgrid (and I’m not a great techie person). Give it a try- you’ll love it!!

Umm Hello? Does anyone NOT see potential?
OK, so I use Flipgrid with distance learning at my school. It is literally the BEST app for learning. Some friends of mine say that they hate it and would not like to use it at all, I totally disagree with them. I think the fact that it made you get the app if you had it on Safari was really annoying and that’s why they hated it. Because it’s taking up a lot of MY space. Other than that I really love it. Somethings I would like to express to the producers are the fact that you can’t really write a comment... I haven’t figured out how to do that and it is SOOO annoying! Other than that I would give it a five stars, but this app really needs an update, seriously, students like me NEED IT! So hurry up already people. Just because the world is in trauma because of some virus does it mean that the kids of the world don’t get the right education! I am waiting!

Awesome tool for flipped learning
I teach technology and geography to kindergarten through fifth graders. during our time at school this year, and I piloted flip grid with my second graders. I am so glad that I did this because we, as a global arts team, were able to integrate our education seamlessly through Flipgrid because I already had an understanding of how it worked and how we can best reach all of our students. We created grades and then added copilots so that all of the elective classwork was in one place for students, and then each teacher managed their own Flipgrid topic. This has been an incredible way for us to learn and we are very much looking forward to continuing flipped learning when we return back to school. I generally work on chrome, but I sometimes use my school iPad to access student work as well. Thank you, Flipgrid, for such a powerful platform for student learning and voice.

Flipgrid during COVID
A colleague introduced me to flipgrid a couple weeks after in-school classes where shutdown and distance learning began. We had less than a days notice to prepare and were only expecting it to last 2 weeks, maybe 3 max. When we realized we were going to end our school year online, we were heartbroken and so were our students. Flipgrid gave us the chance to see and hear each other. Students that couldn’t make it to the zoom sessions or that didn’t feel comfortable talking in the meetings in front of larger groups felt safe using flipgrid to share out. I used it for scavenger hunts and fun activities during distance learning this spring, but I have so many ideas of how to incorporate flipgrid into my content in the fall! I’m excited to introduce it to my new group of students!

A few problems...
So, I downloaded the app for reasons, but I have encountered a few problems. So I use the app quite a lot, but it crashes on me, I don’t know why, I updated it and my iPad and I am ALWAYS connected to my WiFi, so it could not possibly be that. Another problem is that when ever I want to post a video, I already make it in my videos, but it does not let me upload things from my photos or videos. It’s really annoying cause I can’t edit the video how I want it to so please fix this bug. I know alit of people have said this already but it’s really slow. But now I will say a few things that I really like the app. It has some pretty great tools for editing and things like trimming your videos and adding text. It also has it is that you can add cute little photos. It’s also very organized. So over all I really like the app! :)

It’s not fair to all of the platforms
Filpgrid is a great app to be honest but sometimes it isn’t fair! First of all, why is there different features for different platforms? The mobile/iPad/tablet platforms can let the user have the rainbow brush while the PC versions don’t have one? Also, one the mobile/iPad/tablet have the black outlines or some sort of outline on the text? While the PC has no outline? And also can’t adjust too much of the text (such as, making it squeezed together, reverse the text and etc.) Some features are great but are on different devices, which I consider isn’t fair. Second, when typing the text on mobile/iPad/tablet I can’t even see what I’m typing at all. I have to guess what I’m typing which is really hard. Im just a student typing this but... Note to the devs: Please make all features possible on all platforms and make it all the same (somewhat; but please remove the outline of the texts I don’t like it.) It just makes the program be more fair like. PLEASE SEE THIS!!!! thank you

More Frustrating than Efficient
I rarely take the time to write a review, but this app can make me soooo annoyed. It CONSTANTLY glitches (like every day) in the most inconvenient ways possible. And the software is just clunky as heck. I just uploaded a video that took me a half-hour to make (p.s. two minutes for a response is not enough), and I look under the topic and it’s not even there. Nowhere to be found. Additionally, I posted a video to the wrong topic because I can’t see what topic I’m posting to when I’m actually in the process of uploading. I have to trust myself that I clicked the right one before. Also, I can’t delete my videos as a responder to topics, and I can’t upload videos as a response if it decides to glitch. It makes my teaching experience worse because I literally have to put aside feelings of frustration constantly. I love the idea of this app, and most of it works okay, but it needs to be much more efficient. It feels as if you make a small mistake, it’s completely irreversible.

My honest thoughts
I absolutely love the video editing and how easy it is to trim individual videos and move them around. I have encountered a few problems with this app though. The loading takes LITERALLY FOREVER. I’ve tried some different things to help out with it but none seem to work. It’s weird, all of my other apps work with my WiFi so it’s not that... another problem I encountered is this: when I’m editing videos sometimes the app glitches and begins playing the audio from several different parts of what I recorded. It’s trippy. When this happens I have to close out of the app and go back on, which then it thankfully saves my progress and I can continue to make edits to my video. Not end of the world, but definitely annoying at times. Overall, it’s a really fun app and I love the ability to Connect with peers and classmates, I love using Flipgrid! That’s all :) thanks!!!

Rotates too much and messes too much stuff up in landscape mode
When I am recording something(usually for orchestra) in landscape mode, if I want to delete a bad recording, I have to click on the delete button, then wait for it to try to bait me into clicking where it should be in landscape mode, only for it to go into portrait mode and turn everything sideways!!! Additionally, when I am attempting to make a text cover image in landscape mode, the text squishes together and there are no ways to fix it, other than to switch into portrait mode. As one can likely tell, this is immensely infuriating, and I frequently feel an immense amount of wrath prepare to emerge while recording things on this app. Please fix this. Also, please add in the countdown timer before starting a video that is available on the web version. It would save me some time by preventing me from having to delete around 1 second of footage of when I was preparing.

Way too inconsistent
Riddle me this, I just put hours into a video I had to shoot for a class and when I go to edit all the segments to perfect them, it decides not to load them up, I was literally looking at a black screen. I tried pausing and unpausing the video, and it wouldn’t load up, I tried watching each piece by itself and it still wouldn’t load up. Heck, just to confirm it wasn’t on my end I switched from WiFi to LTE - still nothing. Then within moments it’s just gone, the entirety of my video gone. Are you kidding me? Hours of work down the drain because this app couldn’t function like it’s supposed to. Also, I was within my time limit too! The teacher gave us up to 10 minutes for this video and I was at 8:34! There is no excuse for this. This app does not function like it should. Very poor user interface. Hey kids, if your teachers are wanting you to use this app for any school related thing, do everything in your power to get them to not. Worst app out there for video assignments. One star rating if that.

Totally amazing cool app but moderated mode doesn’t work it has been two and a half weeks and I still haven’t got the alert but I understand if it takes long and a few suggestions you could mabye make it sort of like FaceTime where you talk on video but you can change filters and all the things you can do in your flip videos and you could make it where in your videos you have unlimited time so you don’t have to keep looking at the clock and hurrying please take these suggestions thank you great app. Hi I’m editing this I was sort of able to take off moderated mode so that works it says it’s moderated now but it’s not and I have a bug issue will you please fix this cause now I can’t record a video every time I try to hit it it doesn’t record please fix this this and by the way love the new affects you can do now

I had heard of Flipgrid but hadn’t paid much attention until the schools in our state shutdown and everyone was trying to figure out how to navigate distance learning. Enter Flipgrid! What a game changer this has been for us. I use this to post number talks for math, retelling prompts for reading and the list goes on. Our Specialist teachers (music, PE, dance, art, media) have utilized this as well to continue their teaching. The students love being able to send videos of themselves completing the activities or answering the questions and as a teacher it is a wonderful tool to be able to hear our students thinking, rationales and misconceptions which helps us provide better feedback. My students also love being able to see their friends and classmates! This is a must have for any educator!

Teachers vs students
I feel like most people reviewing this app are teachers, who say they love it, not their students. As a student, i’m not a huge fan of this app, i would much rather right things down on do online classes because having to take videos of yourself then posting them for all of your classmates to see is not amazing. Theres also the problem of video quality, everyone has a different camera or different things they use and sometimes that makes it hard to understand other people’s videos so they don’t get as good a grade for something they can’t control. I am using this app for spanish class, and i understand why. It’s so we can learn to speak spanish, but we aren’t. We can pause the video at anytime. Just memorizing a script, not learning, unlike with zoom classes. So while teachers may like this app, many students do not as they aren’t learning with it. And it just adds extra pressure and more things for them to do.

Super engaging and easy to use
Flipgrid is super engaging for my students. They love the opportunity to share their thoughts via video, add emojis or annotations, then share with others. Even students who were reluctant recorders at first have developed confidence in sharing their voice with others. As a teacher, I find it valuable to hear directly from my students voice rather than read a paper. Fluency, inflection and tone offer deeper insight into what. Y students are thinking Nd their depth of knowledge. We use flip QR code’s to get into the app, as well as share videos with others in the school. Since I can use whichever features I want and adapt my expectations for different lessons and classes, I am able to use this app with every grade level at my school from k-4. My kindergarteners have even become experts.

Flipping out for Flipgrid!
Flipgrid is a fantastic tool for giving every student a voice. Whether it is checking for understanding, discussing a topic, or any other number of instructional strategies, it is always challenging to hear from every student. Flipgrid captures each student’s understanding, reasoning, comment, etc. and creates a forum for further dialog. Along the way, it provides an opportunity to build digital citizenship skills. Yes, I left out that it all happens by recording videos and that’s on purpose. It’s not about the videos, yes that’s the medium, but it’s really about capturing the learning of every student. To top it off, it’s easy for teachers and there are tons of resources and guides. Making this happen with any other tool or platform would fall short and be so much more work. Try Flipgrid, it’s flipping awesome!

More Clever than I Thought
So I work with KG students in China. It is often difficult to get students to engage because they are concerned with how they sound when they speak. When I introduced Flipgrid as a way we can just talk to each other during the Covid-19 quarantine, my students just loved that they could communicate with each other through video and chat about whatever was in their minds. Every morning I walk my dog and set up a new question for the kids to answer. It could be about anything! The weather, my doggy, what I should have for breakfast, what they will have for dinner, their favorite shows... anything... and they get to talking. And the grid is so easy to access and set up videos that it’s simple for them to do once parents have shown them. Great job Flipgrid!

I like this app
I am living through coved and we have really small classes and I almost never get to see my class mates in those other cohorts! My teachers used Flipgrid to help us communicate online! We used it to say goodbye to friends who are moving away and use them for assignments! Another thing I love about flipgrid is that your fellow classmates or teachers can put a comment on your post. It is easy to do a response because you can do a video response! But class work is not the only thing you can do on it! You can use it to communicate with friends and make videos to talk or share things that are going on! I also love that it works for iPads because a lot of my stuff doesn’t work because I am on an iPad, but at least I get to do thing on Flipgrid!

It’s okay
I like that it has many features. However, some things are confusing to do. On computer, it fails to upload sometimes. On mobile, it glitches when I use a board. My main problem is when I try to edit the videos and upload it. I have no way of making sure the right one was uploading. For example, I sent something for class. I spent over 3 hourd editing it, but the next day, when my teacher posted them, I saw mine and NONE of the edits saved. Maybe if there was a way to see your video after you upload or have a specific “SAVE” button after you make edits and before you upload. Additionally there could be an option “Are you sure you want to delete this clip?”. There could be a reverse button too in case you want that clip back. It’s a good app but needs improvements.

Five Stars for FLIPGRID
Are you looking for a technology piece that will truly be a game changer? Look no further, FLipgrid is THAT piece. This easy to use app allows students the opportunity to write, record, and collaborate their views with whomever you, the instructor, allows. This app is truly for all ages! The educator sets how you want their recording shared which covers every privacy concern there is. Only you can see it, just your class, your school, or students around the world! It’s simple accessibility allows all digital learners to be successful. I can’t recommend this app enough. I use this for students to read in and I can keep track of fluency. I can respond to individual students and hold actual conversations. Book reviews are a breeze. Love, love, LOVE this app! Download it! Thank me later!

Feedback Video
I’ve only been using Flipgrid for a few days, but I think it’s an excellent platform with many fantastic features and simple user interface. The one thing I wish it would let me do that it doesn’t...yet...hint, hint to the developers...is to provide video feedback easily to individual students with videos that are moderated/hidden. As a Choir teacher, I know that many of my students will be reluctant to share videos with their peers, but they would be willing to share videos with me...that part is easy. However, when it comes to me giving them video feedback, it’s not so simple...they can’t see it. Please fix this by giving teachers the option of allowing the student who posted the video to view video feedback from their teacher. Thank you for this great platform!

Easy To Use and Enhances Students Voices
Fall 2019- My middle school students were very excited about using this app. It was easy to create a class “grid” and assignment, sign up my students for the first time, have them post their first video, and view classmates’ videos all within one period! Spring 2020 (update) - This app has truly enhanced student engagement with our science content, the development of our classroom community, and the growth of students’ communication skills across different media! We have also found fun uses for it such as having students complete self-reflections to share with their families. Flipgrid’s social media is excellent because they interact with many teachers who share creative tips and innovative ways to use the program.

Great Resource for Crisis Schooling!
Flipgrid has become my go to in my “crisis schooling” escapades. For a LA classroom, it is a super creative way for students to answer questions for a reading comprehension passage or show me their how to do something. I’ve been able to week by week, increase the difficulty of their assignments - week one, log in; week 2, tell me the name of your book report book; week 3, answer questions from a podcast I assigned; week 4, do a how to/procedural writing and show me your activity (making eggs, a paper airplane, etc); week 5, presenting your book report. If I hadn’t found Flipgrid I’d still be grading boring stuff - Flipgrid has allowed my class to become more creative & hands on, even in a time of staying home and doing nothing!

Classroom Favorite
Flipgrid is the one activity in my 3rd grade class that ALL the students love. Some students were a little apprehensive at first, especially the quiet ones. When they realized they could make the video by themselves, and re-do it as many times as needed, it was a game-changer. Teachers have the ability to limit the length of the videos. I think that levels the playing field when Flipgrid is used for presentations. Students learn quickly how to focus on the important information while also showing some of their personality. I also love that the people at Flipgrid are always updating/improving the app. Having augmented reality QR codes posted on my hallway bulletin board has made it both fun and interactive

My Favorite Educational App
There are a lot of apps out there for education but none of them are like a family. Education has 💚 and this is the only app that I have found that has that! Not too mention, the app itself is PHENOMENAL!!! By using video, you can truly see students in their thought processes. They can create examples to showcase their knowledge. You can make connections beyond your classroom and provide opportunities for every student to be heard. But it’s so much more than that! You can connect with a community of invested inspiring educators and celebrate each other’s successes! I absolutely couldn’t go back to teaching without it. It’s a MUST HAVE! You must have this!! It’s FREE!! Go hit that download button and start amplifying STUDENT VOICE!! #FlipgridFever

Flipgrid is a HOT collaboration tool!
This past Friday, my students and I presented about our #FlipgridFever at our regional STEM conference. My students and fellow staff members all love how collaborative Flipgrid is. They’re able to share and reply to each other’s responses. Teachers are able to incorporate this app for all kinds of uses—vocabulary, book clubs, mentoring, etc. One is only limited by their own creativity! With the newest release of the app, I am loving the AR feature and am planning to create my first AR bulletin board in the coming weeks. My students also appreciate all the new customizable features that allow them to express their creativity in unique ways. Flipgrid is a great way to have all of your students share what they know! And best of all, it’s FREE!

FLIPGRID has allowed my students to build confidence and relationships in and out of the classroom. Originally I started using Flipgrid as a form of assessing what students knew. Now I have learned so many ways to utilize this video app in my classroom. This app has completely exceeded my expectations. The staff at Fligrid make using this app feel like you have a community supporting you every step of the way. When I needed help with Flipgrid, the response from support staff was punctual and knowledgable. This app has helped to increase student engagement, access prior knowledge, make connections and build a sense of community in my classroom/school. Students are able to teach/ learn from each other and share their voice in a creative way with confidence.

Review from a student
Another person has said something similar to this, so I’ll keep it brief. This isn’t a problem with the app itself, just the way it’s used. Many students, including a good friend of mine, aren’t confident in their voice. So they will record themselves again and again, trying to get a video that they find perfect. A Spanish teacher of mine uses Flipgrid to have us say what we think of a reading, and expects us to be able to do a 1:00-1:30 minute long video first try and without a script. The point is that introverts or people with low quality cameras (like me) tend to lose confidence in themselves, defeating the whole purpose of the app. Once again, nothing against the developers, the app itself is fine. The way people use it is the problem.

Keeping kids presenting on a fun and easy platform
In the midst of the global shutdown, Flipgrid has been instrumental in helping us get kids to keep talking with each other and get creative. A colleague of mine recommended it and it truly has helped keep the kids in contact with each other, and maybe even a little competition. They are able to make videos their own, add emojis, and discuss relative information. I LOVE IT! As a teacher we all get invested in our students, but we also worry about their well-being outside of the classroom. Flipgrid has also helped us realize that most of our students are ok. It continues a sense of classroom community and communication, and I feel has helped them hone some of their presentation skills. For middle schoolers, that’s so important! Thanks FlipGrid.

Very helpful for online learning
I have had to use this app for online school multiple times, and it is very helpful. I am very glad I could get it on my iPhone, because I could film things in different parts of my house instead of having to make all my videos in the same room by my computer. The only thing I didn’t like was that it didn’t work very well on my computer until I used it through Google Chrome. So can you possibly make it work a bit better when it is being used through Safari? Overall, Flipgrid is easy to use, and I recommend getting it on your mobile device so you can film in different places. Thanks for reading my long and boring review.

Hello, I am a student. As you can see there are reviews from teachers which say their students love to use Flipgrid. As I said earlier I am a student. I know for a fact that me and many other students from my school hate using Flipgrid. This app forces us to horrifying videos of ourselves talking about something we don’t care about. When you make your video other students will use your video as blackmail. If this is not the case will make fun of you. I have seen my teachers grading flip grid and it takes longer than most things they would have to grade. Teachers have to constantly pause the video which the student has recorded and sometimes the quality of the video is hard for the teacher to understand. I use this app for English classes and the videos restrain students from learning how to write in a way that they are able to write as if they were speaking. Thank you for reading my honest feedback as a student🙂

Man I love Flipgrid!
Not only is this app awesome, but the people behind the app are awesome too. They always listen to update ideas and ways to improve their app to better accommodate student learning and make things easier for educators. Flipgrid helps my students share their voice in an easy, non threatening way. The recent update has made it even sooo much better! Students love it and I love seeing them and hearing their ideas. It’s fun, simple, and a great way to encourage students who may not want to share their ideas aloud in class. It’s also super great for my student who are online. We build community by using these videos! There’s nothing easier to use than Flipgrid. Just press the plus sign and go!

I truly WISH I could say this is good.
So yesterday my teacher assigned a Flipgrid for science class, and all of my classmates got excited right away, because our teacher knows how much we all like TikTok, and this app was just like it, but educational. I was too excited, because the last time I did it, it worked perfectly. However, today I was doing my video, and when I was ready to upload, it was taking forever to load, and I noticed it said, “low internet connection.” So I knew where I was had lower internet connection, so I decided to resume the process for when I got back to my house. So I cancel the upload, and I notice that ALL OF MY PROGRESS WHEN GONE. In all of my TWO HOURS of footage, GONE. JUST LIKE THAT. I was so furious that I would recommend not to download this, because it’s frustratingly stupid, slow, and annoying that I have to deal with such a dumb, low quality app. Call me impatient, but it’s highly true.

Cumbersome and frustrating (Hate it)
This app is difficult to navigate. Every time you click on something a new tab opens and before you know it there are 8 tabs of Flipgrid open. The “share” button doesn’t link to a place where students can respond. It sends them to a video without a way to interact. If I weren’t required to learn to use this app I would have deleted it immediately. If I’m having this much trouble using it I can’t imagine trying to get my students to use it. Flipgrid, it’s a little self-indulgent to require teachers to follow on social media platforms and leave reviews in order to receive a badge. Make the app with a better user interface and I wouldn’t need to be prompted to leave a decent review. (*Customer service has not responded to my email asking for help. I’m sure they are overwhelmed with new users since so many are required to use it so that’s understandable, for now. )

from the students perspective...
I can see how this app is supposed to be helpful in learning but from a students perspective it’s more stressful than helpful. From reading these reviews most teachers love this app while the students dislike it. This is probably because it’s very nerve-racking to have to post a video of yourself for your entire class to see. It makes students very uncomfortable and anxious. I think that if there was an option as to who is allowed to view your video it would make this app 10x better. I’m hoping someone will listen to this suggestion and make it so that you can choose to have only your teacher be allowed to watch your videos. This way, both the students and teachers can enjoy using this app and the students won’t have to deal with the huge amount of stress and anxiety that comes with making these videos:)

Distance Learning Must-have Tool
I have occasionally used this app in the past, but Flipgrid became invaluable when we went to distance-learning at our school. It has been a big part of connecting with my kids online. I know it will be just as important even in face-to-face classes. It gives each student a voice and allows me to hear students reflect their learning. It was really important for my communications class to use for their graduation and thank you speeches. Normally, we do this using a microphone in the auditorium, but this year they gave their graduation speech via Flipgrid. It was wonderful for other students to provide feedback. Thank you for providing this excellent tool!

Great for distance learning
When our school first started distance learning I was not ready to set up virtual meetings with my students. I looked around and found information on Pinterest about FlipGrid. The first 2 videos posted on my grid were just fun ways for students to see each other. But now I have really connected it to curriculum with students looking on Epic and posting book reviews and taking virtual field trips and posting commercials. As a teacher the Disco Library gives lots of topics to try out too. So why the 4 stars? It is very hard for students to understand where to see feedback on their videos. I had to create my own video and post it to my Google Classroom for them to understand where to find feedback.

Flipgrid during a pandemic
During this time of distance learning, I have integrated Flipgrid with my elementary Google Classrooms. Many students/parents were having a hard time attaching videos to assignments, so I wanted to make it easier for them to record responses (that takes up less storage on their phones!). It has been a fun and useful tool to connect with my students while we’re all at home. I appreciate the ability to moderate posts, though, I wish there was a setting where all of MY responses were automatically “activated,” because it does take a long time to manually activate each my videos in addition to the students my videos. I’m the music teacher, so I have the entire school (about 300 students) in my classes!

My Students are Flipping over Flipgrid!
All I have to do is say the word Flipgrid and my students cheer and listen! This app allows my learners to share their their voice in an authentic way. First of all, it’s the way they love to learn! Secondly, it encourages speaking and listening soft skills that my students so desperately need. It’s GREAT for my ELL learners too. They can learn from their peers by listening to their videos and they hear themselves as they practice proper speech. It allows me to differentiate assessments and give instant feedback. But the reason I truly love Flipgrid is because helping me build stronger relationships with my students... the loud ones that always want to share and the quiet ones I rarely hear from! My teacher heart is happy!

Flipgrid is one of my favorite tools
As a Spanish teacher, you need ways to encourage students to speak. Flipgrid is a great way to get them talking. It is very easy to access for them and allows the flexibility to record in app as well as upload clips that have been recorded previously. It is easy to create and manage topics and submissions right on your phone, tablet or laptop. As an IPhone app it is very easy to use. It remembers your recent grids to give you a shortcut. I can seamlessly view as a student or login to my educator dashboard. You can easily scan or enter Flipgrid codes. There are so many useful features in the app you don’t have to use a desktop or laptop to use the program. I love it.

Student Engagement & Excitement
I’m a technology teacher and I’ve been introducing Flipgrid to my teachers and students this past school year. I have had an overwhelmingly positive response from both teachers and students. Teachers are loving it because it allows them offer multiple means of presentation for their students. Students are loving it because they have another option to show what they know besides a slideshow, paper, or poster. One suggestion - sometimes students need a little quiet to record videos, so let them sit in the hallway if you can or in quiet corners of the room to record! Can’t wait to use it even more the rest of the year as we prepare for Spring Exhibit Night!

Flipgrid is Fantastic!
I recently joined the Flipgrid Movement and the only regret I have is, “Why didn’t I start this sooner?!” My students are loving Flipgrid!!! It’s an amazing tool that can easily be incorporated in any classroom. It’s very user friendly and easy to set up in case you aren’t tech savvy! Once students get started on a grid, they wont want to stop! My Flipgrid “experts” have shared their thoughts through book talks and responses to important topics discussed in class; we recently collaborated with other classrooms at our campus, too!!! I’ve enjoyed seeing my students feel confident and excited to record themselves and share their thoughts and collaborate with their peers.
