How I Use It
Students can use Flip Grid to show evidence of their learning across content areas. You can use it as an exit ticket, show prior knowledge of a topic or to summarize reading. The only difficulty I have run into is if you have multiple students trying to record in a classroom at one time. It can get noisy and makes the videos hard to hear. Some solutions I have seen for these are the "Flipgrid Tents" where students can go to record, or simply having groups take turns or go out to the hallway while they record.
My Take
I think it is a great way to incorporate technology and allow student voice. It is simple to use and is very versatile.
