More Than 40 New Ways to Keep Students Engaged—#FlipgridFresh
We're back with more exciting ways to foster collaboration between students and you! In this month's #FlipgridFresh, we've got more than forty new updates: from dynamic lenses to colorful backdrops, stickers, and frames, plus, a new edit/delete update you and your students asked for.
Lenses to Fit the Season and the Mood
We've got three new lenses this October. The first lens, Scarf-face, is a fun and cozy way to celebrate the season. Next, our VHS lens recreates that '90s retro feel of a VHS video. And, last but not least is our soon-to-be-released lens, Moodscale. We're creating this feature to help you support students' social-emotional learning by giving them a chance to select a mood while recording a video to better express their feelings. Look for it in our mobile app.
Tip: Prompt your students to share their moods at the beginning of the day or as a Friday Reflection to help you understand how they're feeling and how you can help.
Bring On the Backdrops
Find the perfect backdrop for your discussion prompt with thirteen new options this month. From the beaches of Santorini to a cabin in the woods, you're sure to spark some lively discussion topics with these fresh scenes.
Tip: Have your students write and share a short story based on a backdrop of their choice.
New Edit/Delete Capabilities
We’re constantly inspired by our community who fuels everything we do. That’s why, when you asked, we listened! With our new edit and delete buttons, your students can now edit their video descriptions or delete their responses entirely and try again.
Tip: Go to flipgrid.com and try it out!
Stickers, Emojis, and Frames, Oh My!
There's so much more to try this month. You'll find anti-bullying stickers students can use year-round, frames with Halloween and Minecraft themes, Percy Jackson-themed emojis, plus more than 1,800 new 3D emojis, most of which are animated!
