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 educators across the world better engage with and hear from their learners. To use Flipgrid, educators post discussion prompts and learners respond, anytime and anywhere, with short videos.
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 students getting started, you and your child can watch this video.
Then, your child will follow these steps to access their classroom Group:
- Click the Join Link or enter the code from their educator at flipgrid.com.
- Log in with their school email or ID from their educator.
- Review the discussion prompt and record their video.

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