FlipGrid is a tool that allows you to assign students to record short videos of themselves with their computer's webcam or even their cell phone.  It's not about the quality of the video, but having students demonstrate their understanding through verbal communication.  You provide a prompt and let your students do the rest.

What subject areas can use FlipGrid?

FlipGrid can work for any subject area.  It's all about developing their communication skills and use of academic language.  Students can show language fluency or defend a claim with evidence.  They can describe a process or how they solved a problem.  The possibilities are endless.

FlipGrid integrates beautifully with Canvas.  If you are a Canvas user, follow this guide to using FlipGrid in your Canvas courses.
