Flipgrid Guide for Families

Hi, families! If your child’s teacher introduced Flipgrid into the classroom, welcome! We’re here to help!

What is Flipgrid?

Flipgrid is Microsoft’s free video discussion platform that helps millions of leads across the world better engage with and hear from their members. To use Flipgrid, leads post discussion prompts and members respond, anytime and anywhere, with short videos. 

Getting Started

Your child can access their class Flipgrid from any computer with a webcam. Flipgrid is available on the web and via our iOS and Android apps. To learn more about members getting started, you and your child can watch this video.

Then, your child will follow these steps to access their classroom Group:

  1. Click the Join Link or enter the code from their lead at flipgrid.com.
  2. Log in with their school email or ID from their lead.
  3. Review the discussion prompt and record their video.

Family Learning: For Leads

If your child's teacher wants families to participate, there are many ways you can engage, too! Here are Topic ideas in which families can be included:

  • Reading together
  • Family interviews
  • Birthday wishes
  • Messages of positivity
  • At-home experiments
  • Shared physical exercise

Thank You!

We want to thank you for your relentless dedication to your child’s learning. Flipgrid empowers member voice because of leads and families like YOU! Thank you for all you do to encourage your child every day.
