A review by the Teacher Ed Board of our Classics Award winner, FlipGrid One:  


Flipgrid One is a free tool which allows educators to create an interactive material for their classes. Students can create videos that can be seen by the entire class. Flipgrid Classroom is a paid version with more options.  It is a great tool for introductions in a blended or online class.  It allows students to create short videos (using a built in or connected video camera); users can respond to other videos with their own.  It could be used to have students respond to a reading or an image.  Small groups could develop their own grids, or the class could use one grid.  We love FlipGrid One!
