What is Flipgrid?

Flipgrid is an educational connection app that allows teachers and students to discuss a topic virtually through short videos.


Available in the App Store and the Google Play Store, this app is rated for users of all ages. This app does not feature any in-app purchases or advertisements.


This app allows teachers to post a question or a theme to the app that their students are then able to respond to by recording and posting short videos. Flipgrid aims to immerse students in the experiences and ideas of their classmates allowing them to learn from one another and better understand the different learning processes various students undergo.


Students’ responses are displayed in a grid so that everyone’s video is visible, promoting interaction between students and the responses of their peers.


Reviews of this app are quite mixed with many users saying that the app would close or would take very long to upload videos and others raving about its use in their classroom and how it has contributed to a better classroom environment.


Some people also note that the social media like features and display can be distracting for students as they focus more on this than on the task at hand.

Is Flipgrid safe for my kids?

Flipgrid is a virtual educational app that is safe for kids to use. This app is best suited for older kids who will take time to interact with the videos of their classmates and who will ponder the assignment given to them by their teacher and react in an appropriate manner.

Parents should know that this app has social media like features in the display of the posted videos that have been linked to distractions among students away from the task and more towards the appearance of their video and how it is displayed.

Additionally, many reviews of the app noted that it was not always reliable in terms of uploading ability, which caused a problem with timed assignments and turning things in before stated deadlines.

Flipgrid is a great educational tool as it promotes an environment of equality and removes certain fears like speaking up in front of a large group of your friends and classmates. It also promotes engagement with the learning processes and ideas of your peers, creating a sense of deeper understanding and empathy for one another.

Content on this app is filtered based on themes and classes you belong to. To report issues you can contact support@flipgrid.com or visit www.flipgrid.com. Due to the interactive nature of this app, users can chat and share photos and videos in different threads.
