Log in on the Flipgrid Educator site—You’ll need an account to continue. Next, click the +New Grid ‘blue’ button. Then, give it a Grid Name. Scroll down and write in a Grid Purpose. Scroll down some more and decide your Grid Security and Privacy options. Scroll down some more and click any Grid Features that you might want. Scroll down some more [I really hate scrolling] and Customize your Grid with a banner. Now you are ready to click the ‘blue’ Create Grid button. A pop-up screen then shows up asking if you want to create a topic—I just say ‘no’, close it and move on. Your new Grid should have a ‘green’ Active button next to it along with a ‘blue’ Share button. Clicking the Share button will bring you to another options page—I use the URL choice. Now, you can embed the URL code into a Canvas page.
Click on the URL and the Flipgrid will open. Click the ‘Add Ideas’ lightning bolt icon in the circle and follow the directions below:
