Overview:

Flipgrid is an online video discussion site that allows a leader or teacher to post a discussion question or topic and allows a group or class to participate in the discussion by posting their response with a quick video. It was created in 2011 and now has several clients and partners. It was developed at the University of Minnesota at the Institute for Design Innovation. Flipgrid uses flash, and works on computers and mobile devices. The users do need to have internet access to use Flipgrid. Each device will also have to have a camera and microphone of some sort. The iOS devices are ready to use, but a computer or laptop might need some extra setup before Flipgrid can be used. Flipgrid also has technical support if any questions or problems arise while you are using Flipgrid. There are different levels of support depending on the package purchased.

Educational Uses:

There are several educational uses for Flipgrid that come to mind. One use would be to have a class discussion using Flipgrid. Another would be have students work together in groups using Flipgrid to communicate. The last would be to use Flipgrid for homework. Each student could be assigned a problem that they have to explain to their class on Flipgrid.
