20 Ways to Use Canva's Templates With Your Students

I recently had to create an invoice for something and I honestly had no idea where to start. So naturally, I Googled it. Imagine my surprise when a TON of amazing templates popped up from one of my favorite creation sites, Canva. 

Apparently, I haven't been very observant when using Canva lately because the section of templates is pretty obvious. You can find them on the side of the page and can even search for the type you want. This new discovery took me down a rabbit hole of awesome and I began thinking of all of the ways we could use these Canva templates with students*. 

I recently blogged about 10 terrific templates you can use in class tomorrow and included a few Canva templates so the first two may look familiar. Here are 20 ways to use Canva's templates with your class.

1. Invoice
Have your students create an invoice after completing an engineering design project. How much did their materials cost? How much was their time worth? A real-world application that will add mathematics and even more critical thinking.

2. Resume
How fun would it be to have students create a resume for themselves at the end of the year to share their skills and accomplishments? They can even share them with their next teacher. Alternatively, have students create a resume for a storybook character or their classmates as a "star of the week" activity.

3. Magazine Cover
The days of boring reports are gone. Students can create an engaging magazine cover for their report to hook readers in. Pair that with a brochure (#6) and your students will be begging you to complete another.

4. Book Cover
Students can put the finishing touch on their creative writing project or on their entire writing portfolio with creative cover. Students can also create a book cover for the sequel to a book they read or for a class novel that doesn't already have one.

5. Brochure

A fun twist on an old project. State report? California Missions? Animal habitats? Ancient Civilization? All of these reports can be turned into a brochure. Highlight the important places to see and the history or facts about your topic. Add pictures, color, and fun fonts to make it visually pleasing. Way more fun than writing it out on binder paper!

6. Flyer 
Our students work hard on their projects and should advertise that hard work to show it off. Creating a flyer would be a great wrap up to an engineering design project or a PBL unit. For example in this Simple Machines Unit, students are challenged to design a product using 2 or more simple machines that would help a person with disabilities. As alternative option students can use this Canva template for their product ad. 

7. Newsletter

Well, this one speaks for itself. Challenge your class to write a monthly newsletter. Give each group a different section to write and have one "editor" each month put it all together. You can upload it to a class Google site or SeeSaw to share with parents.

9. Menu 
The templates that are included already have an awesome selection of menus. Have your students choose one and write their own math problems for the class. Each week (or perhaps once a month) students can use one of the menus on the site and collaborate in groups to write math problems for their classmates in a collaborative Google Slides presentation. Your daily math warm-ups are done
and the problems have real-world application.

10. Bookmarks
When reading a class novel pick out quotes that stick with your students. Have students create their own bookmark as a fun way wrap up your unit or as an extension activity.

11. CD Covers

Any music teachers out there? Well, you may have to first explain to your students what CDs ARE and bring in a couple of examples then you can give your students an opportunity to create their own cover for their school band or choir. 

12. Invitation

Build the excitement for a class celebration by creating invitations for your families. Make Back to School Night, Open House, a winter concert or school play personalized with a special invitation from your students.

13. Worksheet

Yes, I said worksheet. Hear me out here. The templates on Canva are not only pretty but they are adaptable. Who said the worksheets have to made by you? Challenge your students to create their own writing prompt. Students can adapt the template and write a new prompt that would interest them. Give them some parameters on the genre of writing you are working on and let them go. Students can create them in groups and can vote on the one they want to use for their assignment or give them the choice of using any of them. Either way, the engagement level goes way up.

14. Social Graphic
Begin the school year or the new year by choosing their "One Word" for the year.  Using the socialOne Word HyperDoc created by Sean Fahey to get started.
graphics templates students can create an eye-catching graphic to share their one word. Be sure to check out this

15. Poster

Quotes can be inspiring and motivating. We see them all the time online, hanging up in the dentist office, pinned up on the wall of our workspace. Challenge them to create an inspiring poster to gear up for standardized testing at the end of the year, design a poster for a quote from a historical figure or a character from a book they are reading.

16. Report Card
Yep, Canva even has templates for report cards. We may be confined to our district report card but our students aren't. They can create a report card for themselves at the end of each trimester as they reflect on their strengths and goals. As a class, you can even create your own class report card and have students give you feedback on the year on tips for improving.

Infographics
Sharing information in a simple yet engaging way can be more challenging than it seems. Infographics are an excellent way to encourage your students to be concise and organized as they convey information in a visually pleasing format. Canva provides TONS of infographics for many different applications. Here are a few ideas:

17. Design Process Infographic

This template would be a great place to start with your class. Instead (or in addition to) using it to explain your design process for an engineering project, almost any grade could create an infographic outlining the steps in a class procedure or routine that you could display on the wall.

18. Timeline
There are quite a few timeline templates for students to modify for all different purposes. The one linked above is simple yet has a place for pictures and is easily adaptable. Students can create a timeline for a particular time in history, for a biography report or even for themselves to mark accomplishments over the course of the year or in their life.

19. Digital Citizenship Poster

Even the youngest students can help create their own digital citizenship poster. This "do's & don'ts" infographic is a perfect way to get started identifying good digital citizenship habits. Older students can work in groups to create a poster for different apps you use in your classroom and can even share their posters with younger students to teach them how important it is to be a good digital citizen. You can add this project to this Super Digital Citizen HyperDoc too =) 


20. Facts about a topic
We know that easily digestible bite-sized chunks are preferable when reading facts about something. However, for writers synthesizing information can be tricky and is a skill that students need to learn. Utilize this infographic to give your students a jumping off point when writing.


*It is important to note that according to Canva's Terms of Use you must be 13 years or older to use Canva without direct supervision. If you are under 13 years old your use of the service must be directly supervised by your parent or guardian or another authorized adult (e.g., a teacher) who agrees to be bound by this agreement.

10 Terrific Templates You Can Use in Class Tomorrow

Staring at a blank computer screen as you try to create something is daunting. Where do you begin? How do you organize all of your ideas in a way that others can understand?

Enter templates 👍

I LOVE templates. They help guide me in creating great lessons for my students and aide me as I share great tools with teachers I work with.


Templates save us time and give us a place to begin. These 10 templates can be adapted to use with almost any grade level. Do you have a favorite template you use with your students? Add it in the comments below.

I have recently discovered the world of Canva templates (apparently I was living under a rock). There are SO many and the opportunities to utilize them in the classroom are almost endless. Stay tuned for a Canva templates focused post coming in the near future. Here are a few ideas for now 😉

1. Invoice
Have your students create an invoice after completing an engineering design project. How much did their materials cost? How much was their time worth? A real world application that will add mathematics and even more critical thinking.

2. Resume
How fun would it be to have students create a resume for themselves at the end of the year to share their skills and accomplishments? They can even share them with their next teacher. Alternatively have students create a resume for a storybook character or their classmates as a "star of the week" activity.

Ryan O'Donnell has created some amazing templates that have been shared and raved about all over the Twittersphere. You can see them all on his blog creativeedtech.com. The two templates I mention below are ones that I have used with students and can personally attest to the incredible increase in engagement and fun that they have added to the lessons.

3. Time Magazine
Recreating a Time Magazine cover and article is WAY more fun than a boring old paper and pencil biography report. Students insert photos, add captions and write their own articles as they publish their own Time Magazine.

4. Twitter Profile
Another crowd favorite is Ryan's Twitter profile template. Students can create a profile for an author or book character including a few "tweets" they may have sent. We have also had students create their own Twitter profile page where they can display their accomplishments and a link to a digital portfolio. A fun twist on an "About Me" page.

My all time favorite templates are for HyperDocs. Creating quality HyperDocs can be challenging, especially if you are just starting out. Templates were my go-to when I began making HyperDocs and I still fall back on them often when creating units or lessons. Below are two that I have modified or co-created for sharing with teachers. You can find even more at hyperdocs.co/templates.

5. Explore, Explain, Apply, Extend
The original Explore, Explain, Apply template is fantastic. It is simple and easy to use when creating a HyperDoc for a lesson. In this version I added a few more instructions, links to resources and tips for creating. I use this Explore, Explain, Apply, Extend template in trainings for teachers or when co-creating a HyperDoc with a teacher who is just jumping in.

6. Novel HyperDocs
Heather Marshall originally began creating Novel HyperDocs as a way to move her students into a blended learning version of the old novel companion activity packet. If you are an experienced HyperDoc creator or just want to dive in and create a full unit for your students then starting with a novel HyperDoc may be a good place to begin.

This Novel Hyperdoc template was created by Sean FaheyMichele Waggoner and I to get you started. It includes various slides for different purposes including extensions, figurative language, summarizing, vocabulary and more. There is also a link to a teacher's guide with even more resources.

7. Daily Check in with Google Forms
Frequent check ins with your students is important as you are assessing their learning. It's just as valuable to check in with them about their social and emotional health as well. Kids have a lot going on outside of our classroom and having an easy place to share how they are doing is important. Check out this daily check in  google form template created by Mari Venturino which can be easy modified to fit your class.

8. Motivational quote
Quotes can be inspiring and motivating. We see them all the time online, hanging up in the dentist office, pinned up on the wall of our workspace. Your students can create their own motivational quotes with these Google drawings templates created by Eric Curts. Challenge them to create an inspiring poster to gear up for standardized testing at the end of the year, design a poster for a quote from a historical figure or a character from a book they are reading.

9. Infographics
Sharing information in a simple yet engaging way can be more challenging than it seems. Infographics are an excellent way to encourage your students to be concise and organized as they convey information in a visually pleasing format. While Canva and Piktochart also offer great infographic templates as a GSuite for education school having students create using a Google app is preferable. Jeff Herb has created some great options in Google drawings. The Steps infographic template would be a great place to start with your class. Almost any grade could create an infographic outlining the steps in a class procedure or routine that you could display on the wall.

10. Flipgrid Grid Templates
A BRAND NEW update to Flipgrid is one that will make Grid creating  that much easier. Honestly, I don't know how they continue to make Flipgrid even more simple and user friendly but they do. Grid templates are now available to ALL users, including Flipgrid One, as you get started creating a new Grid. Get started using Flipgrid in your classroom right away with the Classroom template pre-loaded with a Class Intros topic complete with a nifty gif and an easy to follow prompt "Introduce yourself in 90 seconds or less and share something that makes you smile."

*I have curated 10 templates that I have found that I believe will work well in your classroom. A few I created or co-created myself but many were created by other incredible educators. I love to share amazing examples of ready to use resources but also want to be sure the original creator gets full credit AND a big shout-out. If you LOVE a template too please be sure to reshare the original blog post instead of, or in addition to, sharing this one.

Intensity is Free: Reflections & Takeaways from the 3rd Annual MDUSD STEM & EdTech Symposium

The annual Mount Diablo Unified School District & East Bay CUE STEM and EdTech Symposium, sponsored by Andeavor is the product of lots of hard work by the incredible Shauna Hawes who has put on an amazing event THREE years in a row! Shauna, with the help of Megan Gerdts, Valley View Middle School principal Lisa Sullivan, the Valley View Jag Tech Team and more behind the scenes helpers work tirelessly to plan and run this event that makes us ALL #MDUSDProud. Read more about the symposium in this article by the East Bay Times East Bay EdTech Symposium sees record-breaking 500 participants by Lou Fancher.

The third annual event
was a Saturday in February filled with wonderful sessions led and attended by fabulous educators around the East Bay and beyond. Jon Corippo, Interim Executive Director of CUE, presented the morning keynote and he did not disappoint. Jon got the crowd cracking up with Funny Amazon Reviews (check them out, you'll be rolling on the floor laughing too). His point though, yes he did have one, is that this writing is brilliant. What if we gave our kids chances like this? To be creative, funny, and write for a real audience. He encouraged the audience to create lessons that students will remember forever and gave the epic example of Matt Vaudrey's "Mullet Ratio" lesson which he calls "The Only Lesson They'll Remember". Jon told us to take our own lessons and look at the 4C potential (creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication). Increase the 4C potential and create a lesson they'll remember.




The session options were incredible and new this year was an all day option for a Raspberry Pi workshop with the amazing Amanda Haughs. Attendees got to experience the world of physical computing with programs like Scratch, Minecraft and Sonic Pi with their own Raspberry Pi computer.


Once again I had the pleasure of presenting with THE Joe Young to a group of amazing educators on Google Expeditions and we had so much fun. This year we presented two sessions and both groups were fantastic. We hoped to answer the question of how to REALLY utilize this technology in your class in a meaningful way instead of just using it as a flashy new tool. We took participants on some exciting virtual field trips, shared resources including companion HyperDocs for expeditions and brainstormed ideas on how to incorporate the 4Cs into these exciting lessons.


The incredible MDUSD & Andeavor STEM Lending Library was available for the attendees to check out in the Lending Library playground. Since last February, when the lending library was officially rolled out, the Valley View Jag Team (led by Shauna Hawes) has been working hard to manage the library so that teachers and administrators can get materials and return them. The Library has tech tools like Dash, MakeyMakey, Raspberry Pi, Spheros, VR Headsets, 3D Printers and more for ANY educator in the Mount Diablo Unified School District to check out for two weeks at a time and use in their classroom or with their staff.



It was a wonderful day and once again made me incredibly proud of my district and the amazing learning community we have created. There were tons of highlights are resources shared throughout the day. Check out some of tweets from #STEM18 below.

Take Off with Flipgrid's Newest Feature: CoPilots!

This is a collaborative post written with the incredible Sean Fahey. Sean is a Level 2 Flipgrid Certified Educator and a Flipgrid Ambassador. He is currently a 6th grade math teacher at Throop Elementary School in Paoli, Indiana. Sean is a proponent for replacing the traditional lecture, worksheet, and textbook method of delivering instruction and strives to bring unique learning experiences to his students.You can follow him on Twitter @SEANJFAHEY and check out his blog faheystech.blogspot.com.



Flipgrid has added new features to their product once again and this time it makes us all BETTER TOGETHER. We were able to test out this new feature before the release and the beauty of it is, it's so simple, yet so powerful!

Now, Flipgrid Classroom educators  (yes, this mean paid version) will have the power to connect, amplify, and CoPilot Grids together! Don’t worry, ALL Flipgrid users can be added as a CoPilot. The rules of this new CoPilots feature are simple: CoPilots can do pretty much everything the Grid Owner can do (add Topics, give video and text feedback, moderate responses, etc) with one exception - CoPilots cannot delete the Grid.

With the addition of CoPilots to Flipgrid, it creates new opportunities for asynchronously connecting classrooms across your school, district, professional learning network, or the world on shared Topics with BOTH (or multiple) educators in control of the discussion.

We have put together the 2nd edition of the Educator’s Guide to Flipgrid FREE ebook to share with teachers who are looking to utilize Flipgrid to its full potential.  Below you will see our CoPilots page that gives you the FULL 411 on this awesome new feature. Want the full eBook? Of course you do! Check it out at bit.ly/flipgridebook2




So how can you take advantage of having a CoPilot to a grid? Well first off it takes the load off a single Grid creator to manage all the Topics and responses that may be added. Here are just five ideas to help you take off with Flipgrid CoPilots!


  • School wide Grids. Flipgrid can be leveraged to allow a school to share all the amazing things students do with their learning with all stakeholders. Create a Grid and add Coaches, Teachers, & Admins so they can add topics, moderate responses. This grid could even be embedded on a school’s website!
  • All classes connect. For example, imagine Kindergarten, 4th grade, 7th grade ELA, or 10th grade History classes all connected across a building or district. Teachers of the same grade level or subject can CoPilot a grid together to connect ALL students to share their learning & maybe even teach each other.
  • Use the Flipgrid Connections feature, then add a CoPilot.  The Connections feature allows you to share a Grid with other Flipgrid using educators to easily receive a global audience. Once a connection is made, you may want to become virtual pen pals and bring your students together like never before. Both teachers can CoPilot the Grid and moderate when needed!
  • Participate in global education events. The CoPilot feature now allows teachers to connect their classes  without the hassle of figuring out time zones and lining u        . Some great ones include: Global Read Aloud, World Reading Day, Hour of Code, Global Play Day and LOADS more!
  • Video yearbook using Flipgrid. All you’d need to do is set up a grid at the beginning of the school year and add your CoPilots. This could be yearbook staff, teachers, or administrators.  Topics are added throughout the year for students to respond to. These responses should be moderated to make sure content is appropriate so having CoPilots would be extremely helpful to approve a large volume of responses.

But wait! I don’t have Flipgrid Classroom??? 😭  Don’t worry we’ve got you covered there 👍



So are you ready to take flight with the new Co-Pilots feature? Awesome. Enjoy!

Scratch & Makey Makey! Ideas for Getting Hands-on with Computer Science in YOUR classroom!

At the end of last school year my colleague and I had an idea. What if we took our love of Makey Makey added the amazing coding skills our kids have been honing in Scratch and put them together to enhance a math concept they were learning in the classroom?


Sherry Brauer, an brilliant third grade teacher, and I had been working together teaching her students programming with Scratch and they are rockin it. We took this opportunity to take a math concept they were learning, equivalent fractions, had the students write a program in Scratch to show what they know then added Makey Makey to make it a hands-on interactive physical model.



To begin the project Sherry had the students create physical models with fraction strips to show equivalent fractions. They had been studying fractions for awhile in math so this was the perfect link to computer science. A great hands-on lesson for modeling equivalent fractions and a fun way to connect to Makey Makey.



Link to original project students used to remix

After their models were made students remixed this Scratch project, which is simply an image of the same fraction bars (minus the whole), with a sprite (the object that performs the action in a program). They added all of the programming blocks to create their own project showing equivalent fractions and they were given the chance decide how best to do this. Most chose to program their sprite to move to the a specific location on the fraction bar then used the "say __ for 2 seconds" block to identify the fraction and an equivalent.


We were smack dab in the middle of this project when this post was written so the students were still working on it and added more to their programs along with instructions so that others can use their programs with Makey Makey too. Below is an example of one student's work in progress program.


Link to student's project.
Use the up arrow to control the sprite and space to reset.

Finally we used Makey Makey to make our physical fraction models our touchpad to run our programs. We used copper tape (here is the Amazon link) on our fraction bars to create our circuits. We have 10 MakeyMakey kits at Sun Terrace and they are well worth the investment! Check out this STEM pack available for you to get your own!






The best part of a project like this is how engaged the students were with the math concept. We heard TONS of math vocabulary being used while they were building their programs and their circuits. The students that struggled with the concept originally were asking for an extra mini lesson on fractions so that they were sure to get their program to work the way they wanted it to. When students had a mistake in their mathematical thinking it was not seen as a failure by them but simply a bug in their program they needed to fix.

So what else can you do with Scratch and MakeyMakey?

Now here is the fun part! Let your imagination run wild with the possibilities. Below are just a few ideas you could try!


  • Interactive Map.  Have students create a map of your state or the USA and use MakeyMakey and Scratch to have the sprite explain facts as they touch each place on the map.
  • Books Talk! Students illustrate a cover of a book and use Scratch and MakeyMakey to make the character come to life with a book preview.
  • Solar systems come alive. Make a model of the solar system using PlayDoh, as users touch each planet a talking sprite explains a bit about that planet.
  • All About (fill in the blank) talking poster. Using Scratch sound blocks have students record themselves explaining what they incorporated into their poster and what it tells about the character or person or even themselves.
  • Writing takes on a life of it's own. After writing a story have students program their sprites to act it out in Scratch. Students can illustrate a cover or a comic book style version of their story to make it an interactive tale!

There are TONS of resources out there for you and your students to try, we are just barely scratching (get it ;) the surface and the possibilities are truly endless. The Makey Makey Labz website is chock FULL of great projects for you and your students. Check out the link below and be sure to follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with any new resources and deals.



Another incredible resource  is a new book by Colleen and Aaron Graves. 20 Makey Makey Projects for the Evil Genius promises to be FILLED with projects showing readers step-by-step how to make awesome new inventions with Makey Makey. You can order it on Amazon today!



So that's how we are combining computer programming with making at Sun Terrace Elementary and we are just beginning to dive into all of the ways we can get students exploring, discovering, thinking and creating with Scratch and Makey Makey. This year we are taking it even deeper following the 3-5 Computer Science curriculum from San Francisco Unified (see links below). What have you tried? Have tips, ideas, resources to share? Please add them to the comments below!


Are you looking for ways to get started with Scratch and Makey Makey? Check out this earlier post. Also check out the INCREDIBLE work they are doing in San Francisco Unified combining Scratch and Makey Makey in their 3-5 Computer Science curriculum. Huge shout-out to Owen Perry, Bryan Twarek, Bill Marsland and the entire #CSinSF team for SO generously sharing their curriculum with us and constantly inspiring us to bring Computer Science to all students!

Meet the All NEW Flipgrid! 10+ Must Try Ideas for Using These Updates With Your Class

The edtech world has caught a serious case of #FlipgridFever 🔥 On August 10th Flipgrid Founder Charlie Miller announced that more than 100,000 educators and more than 5,000,000 students use Flipgrid across 141 countries (watch the live stream of the launch event). In addition, a new Flipgrid video was shared every .48 seconds of every minute of every day since Jan 1 of 2017. Today more than 1.2 billion seconds of video have been shared by students and educators on Flipgrid, representing more than 38 years of student voice.

Flipgrid knows what kids and teachers love and they have added some awesome features to take the best parts of other apps like Instagram and Snapchat and added them in a safe environment (you can control all of these options in the admin console) while keeping all of the fun! There is a sleeker and even MORE user friendly admin side. Check it out for yourself! The admin console has gotten a major makeover. In true Flipgrid form emojis have been added for extra fun and engagement. You are going to FLIP out over these updates and what’s even more incredible is that ALL of these features are available to the FREE Flipgrid One account users!

I know you have been kept in suspense long enough so I won’t make you wait any longer. So let me introduce you to the all NEW Flipgrid! Check out these incredible updates and ideas for using them in your classroom!



1. Who doesn’t love stickers? Students (and adults) will love the new ability to express themselves by adding a stickers to their selfie. Have your students use stickers to  label their videos into genres or even express mood with emoji stickers.

2. What!!! You can DRAW on your selfie too? In addition to adding stickers kids can also draw on their snapped selfie to add a little creativity to give a sneak peek into what their video might be about.

3. Videos can now have titles added which not only gives the viewer an idea of what the video is about but also gives students the opportunity to use their creative writing skills to come up with a good title that will hook the viewer in and get them watching their video! You can also add hashtags to videos to make them searchable.

4. Camera flip! You can now flip your camera around while recording. Think of all the possibilities for students to show their work or art or model or ??? while they are explaining and sharing their thinking.

5. OK get ready for this one. Are you ready??? Are you sure, because this is HUGE. FILE LINKS! Nope, you aren’t dreaming. Students can now now add files links to your videos which give students the opportunity to share their thoughts about a project. Incredibly engaging digital portfolios. CHECK!

6. Supercharged stimulation! You thought it was amazing before to be able to add your own video file or YouTube video? Well check THIS out! You can still upload or record your own video but now you can add Vimeo (and YouTube), upload and image, add a GIF or even and emoji to engage your students. Use an emoji to teach concepts like mood and tone. Check out Edutopia’s article Using Emojis to Teach Critical Reading Skills for more ideas.


7. Holy HyperDocs integration! Prompts can pack an even bigger punch with the ability to attach any file, document or website in your topic. Attach a HyperDoc and allow students to reflect at different parts of a lesson or unit. Check out Flipgrid and HyperDocs! Amplifying student voice in purposeful lesson design for more ideas.

8. You asked for it and they delivered, BIG TIME. Flipgrid now give ALL users (even Flipgrid One accounts) the option to provide PERSONALIZED FEEDBACK for your students. Right from the teacher admin you can click next to your students videos and provide written feedback and even give them a score on a performance and ideas rubric.ALL Flipgrid educators can now provide feedback to their students. Flipgrid Classroom users can even upload their own custom scoring rubric!


9. Click on your Dashboard to see your total engagement time across all of your grids and Flipgrid will give you an Engagement Fun Fact to go with it. Have a flipgrid account you only use with your class? Share this with your student to put their response time into context. You might just sneak a little extra learning in too 😉  A little fun fact of my own, you can even Tweet it right from your dashboard!
10. Student privacy is important and so is family communication and that’s why can now generate a private link to share a video with your students’ families or even the community without linking back to the topic and grid it was recorded in. Create a hidden topic and use the new feature to generate a private link to share with your parents to communicate with families while ensuring that other students and parents can’t access the videos from your grid.

11. Now you can do more than just like a video you can react to it! Add these emoji reactions for more fun. You can use them for voting or assign a meaning to each so that students can give each other feedback on their videos in a fun and easy way. Teachers can off the 5 reactions and just keep the likes or turn them on for added engagement.

The BEST thing about the all NEW Flipgrid is that along with all of these amazing new updates they have kept all of the wonderful features you have come to know and love. Students can still respond using ANY device, sharing topics and grids is as simple as a code or link and teachers have full control with moderating features. These are just some of the incredible updates. Visit blog.flipgrid.com or info.flipgrid.com to see all of the ways Flipgrid has made their already amazing product even more incredible.
