Flip (formerly Flipgrid) is a video discussion and video sharing app, free from Microsoft, built for classrooms and beyond. A place where curious minds connect in safe, small groups to share videos, build community, and learn together.
Idea’s how to use FlipGrid:
Mindfulness: As your learning community sets goals for the year, have students reflect on them. Share last year’s student reflections with this year’s members. Use the videos to help inform this year’s students what their year might look like. This helps them anticipate what they’ll need to enjoy the year and be successful. This can help empower students with mindfulness and reflective practices.
Introductions: Start the school year with introductions of each member and staff, and introduce your workspace, too.
Advisories: Leads meet the needs of middle school students with advisories to build a sense of community and to ensure success academically and socially. Leads can leverage Flip to check in with members on their progress, give feedback and suggestions for improvement and celebrate achievements.
Literature Circles and Book Reviews: As members read and reflect on a piece of literature or engage in community discussions, provide opportunities for them to share their own book recommendations as well as watch their classmates’ book reviews. Tip! Extend the discussion by enabling Member-to-Member Replies on the Topic!
Lab Stations: Lab stations are inquiry-based, student-centered lessons to explore and learn new concepts. Lab stations with Flip allow the educator to “clone” themselves or provide videos and resources to explore prior to direct instruction.
Help Center: Create a private place for members to pose questions, how-to videos, comments, and supportive feedback.
Peer-to-Peer Feedback: Flip is a wonderful collaborative tool where members can give actionable feedback to one another through the use of videos or text with the Blackboard/Whiteboard Feature.
Promote SEL: Create activities that promote a sense of community, like videos asking students to think of their strengths and how those strengths can be used to support the virtual classroom environment.
Enhance Culturally Responsive Pedagogy: Give members the opportunity to integrate other applications they may have grown accustomed to using, like TikTok, Google Slides or Adobe Spark, to create content-based projects and videos that can be shared with parents.
Connect with Parents: Use Flip as a parent engagement tool by introducing families to the similarities in techniques used every day (like taking photos, creating videos or texting) with techniques their child needs to know for virtual learning and the 21st century workforce. Get creative with uploading videos and documents, using the Blackboard feature when you are feeling shy or AppSmash and integrate other platforms with Flip.
Document Research Papers: Create video summaries that highlight data, allow students to submit an elevator pitch for a research project, or introduce an area of research they will be focusing on.
Interview Practice: Host practice runs for both graduate school or workforce interviews.
