Flipgrid is a great service for gathering video responses from your students. One of the best things about Flipgrid is that students can use it on any computer, phone, or tablet including iPads. And the iPad app is completely free to install and use.
Flipgrid does require that teachers use the Flipgrid website to post topics and prompts for students to reply to. Students can use any device including iPads to respond to those prompts. In the following video I demonstrate how students can use the free Flipgrid iPad app.
Over on my Practical Ed Tech site I recently published a comprehensive guide to using Flipgrid. If you have never used Flipgrid or you’re looking to help get colleagues started on Flipgrid, share the guide with them.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive external microphone to use with an iPad, take a look at these that you can get in a three-pack for $7.
