Flipgrid Fakeout

I love Flipgrid.  There is SO much you can do with it!

In prepping our 8th graders for Campaign this year, we really wanted them to be able to record their speeches in a "formal-ish" setting.  Ideally, they'd record with a green screen.  But our recording studio is being used as a classroom this year so that was out.  And most of the kids recorded at home.

Enter Flipgrid. 
And the faux green screen feature. 
Also known as Flipgrid Frames.

Here's a quick how-to video for you!

The custom frames were made using Google Drawings.  I cut out a "hole" in the middle of the image (the video shows just one example) and then saved it as a .png file.  That allows for the transparency.  Watch out... this can be a "oops I just lost two hours playing in the last five minutes" experience!
