If you try to turn off permission to camera it makes you turn it back on until you can use it again. I don’t think these people realize that not every single human being on this planet Earth is a narcissist. In fact, I’m pretty sure this Earth consists of mainly non-narcissists (at least I hope so).
In addition, there seems to be no way to delete a recording if you accidentally press pause instead of delete, which is stupid. They are able to pause their recording and be able to listen to it, but have no way of deleting except to exit out on the recording space entirely.
I have been using Flipgrid in my class for daily instructions, teacher introductions, and to support my project based learning. When schools were placed on distance learning Spring 2020, I depended on Flipgrid to instruct my students at home. What a blessing! Not only did my students continue learning in a creative format but I had an opportunity to see their faces, their personalities, and to hear them. Flipgrid is so awesome, I have been working towards getting their Educator badges so I can spread the word to other teachers.
My middle and high school students can use this tool with ease from laptops or mobile devices. It’s a great way for them to respond with a video of their singing or playing and for me to give them quick visual and audio feedback as they work to improve performances. It’s also a time saver for tests, since students can submit at any time convenient for them. I can give a demo video of how to complete the assignment, which is much more efficient than typed instructions. Plan to use it even more this year!
I am an educator and I can not figure out how to create a topic. I am an art teacher so I am just letting my students over summer break to create their own summer vids. I am still trying to figure out how I can give my students summer assignments. I am not evil I am just an art teacher that teaches middle school sculpting but I want my student to learn how to use everyday items to create a beautiful piece of artwork and it is not working. I still love it all the same though!
Flipgrid has been so fun to use with my students! It allows a creative outlet for all students to share their knowledge or the material, wether alone or with a partner, and really feel comfortable sharing what they know! I love that the app can be used on a phone or iPad and students can even record with a laptop, which is great because resources are sometimes limited and I can check out a laptop cart for students to use if needed and it works just as well!
My students love when they get to use Flipgrid. It helps make learning accessible to more of my students. The ability to be able to verbally explain learning is a great accommodation for my students who struggle with writing. This app was a life saver during distance learning as well. I was able to record lessons and post directly to my google classroom. My students were also able to read to me and explain math problems in their videos.
I have been working so hard to bring our first ever Children’s Business Fair to our town. Due to covid and recent pandemic it has forced many of us to cancel or postpone events. A friend recommended flipgrid to me the other day and it has since been a game changer. I am able to still allow our young entrepreneurs to participate while learning and experiencing a new platform at the same time.
Thank you Flipgrid!
Flipgrid is a user-friendly and really powerful tool for teachers and students to use -- especially during these challenging times when many of us have to teach and learn apart! I appreciate all the admin features that allow you to select (or deselect) commenting features, video length requirements, and more. I'm an art teacher and can't wait to continue to learn what all this OUTSTANDING app can do!
Flipgrid is an incredible resource that all teachers should take advantage of especially in these uncertain times. If you were looking for a way to easily connect with your students, give them a platform to amplify and share their voice all the while keeping it simple, this app is for you be sure to check out the Flipgrid community online and on Twitter for resources and best practices!
I have used flipgrid all year long for my students to respond to reading but oh boy did it come in handy during elearning. I would post a lesson and the students responded. Sometimes they would still write it all out and just show their work. Which was great for my shy students. And others would write it out, read it out loud, act it out, etc. very versatile and super easy to use!
