In addition to the new features in the mobile app, the Flipgrid website has a new feature for teachers. That feature is the #GridPals tab in your teacher dashboard. Under the #GridPals tab you will find an option to make your teacher profile public for other teachers to find so that you can connect your classrooms to participate in each other’s Flipgrid topics. In other words, you can become virtual “penpals” or, in this context, “videopals.”
Applications for Education
#GridPals could be a great way to connect your classroom with another. You could connect to talk about topics in the news or just to talk about what life is like in a different part of the world.
