What is FlipGrid? How Do I Use It?

Flipgrid is a social learning platform that allows educators to ask a question either through a video or voice recording, then the students can respond in a video or voice recording.  Students can write comments in Flipgrid on teacher or student created videos.  This web of discussion creates an online community where knowledge is shared and created.
