Flipgrid: A Video-Based Discussion Forum

Published March 1, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Flipgrid is a free Microsoft-owned platform that allows teachers to create “grids” to facilitate video discussions. As on a regular electronic discussion forum, teachers can add questions or discussion prompts (called topics). Students can then post their video responses, which are organized in a tiled grid structure, and consult their peers’ responses. Each grid can hold an unlimited number of topics and each topic can hold an unlimited number of responses, giving teachers great flexibility on how to use the tool.

Published April 26, 2009  |  English (Language and Literature)

Michael Tritt Teacher, Marianopolis College

The classroom can be a great place to inspire reflection, discovery, articulation, and discussion. Yet students are frequently unable, in the flow of the class, to express some of their ideas to the group. Why not start an on-line discussion forum to provide student expression a place outside of he classroom?

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
