In addition to making Flipgrid totally free, we listened to your feedback and spent the summer working on a bunch of magical updates!
Wondering what Grid community type is best for you and your students? Let's breakdown each community type to find the best one for your classroom!
School Email Domain
If students have school Microsoft or Google accounts (check with your IT team, as most student do even if it doesn't appear so!), this is the easiest setup. Just add your school domain and you're ready to go! Securing your Grid is as simple as copy/pasting everything after the @ symbol in your school email. You can add multiple domains for teachers and students, and your #GridPals can add their own domains!
Student ID List
If you're working with younger students without school accounts, Student ID List is made for you! Create a list of students and their unique identifiers. The identifiers can by anything you want - their first name, ID #, lunch pin, or emails. You'll also get a QR code for each student. They can tape them to their desk or notebook for easy access and easily hop into the Grid and add their voice by scanning their unique code on Flipgrid.
Additionally, Student ID List is perfect if you want to connect with a specific community outside the classroom! Add an identifier for family members, authors, or other experts so they can easily access the Grid community and join your students in the conversation!
