Flipgrid is the leading video discussion platform used by millions of students and educators around the world. Create a grid for your classroom or community to spark a discussion.

How Flipgrid works

Teachers spark discussion by posting topics and questions to a class, school, professional learning community, or the world. Students record, upload, view, react, and respond to each other’s short videos. Flipgrid students build and strengthen social learning communities as they discuss their ideas and experiences with their peers.
