Here's how:

1) In Flipgrid under Responses, select Share.

2) Select the Embed icon to copy the link.

3) In Parlay, select Edit in the top right corner of the Written RoundTable

4) Select the Insert/edit media icon.

5) Select Embed and paste the Flipgrid code.

And there you have it! 🙌

Use a Flipgrid video to facilitate discussions by:

  • Taking a deeper dive into an idea shared in a Flipgrid video or discussion.

  • Feature a video in the Content & Multimedia section in an Written RoundTable. A Flipgrid video of the teacher or student expert on a subject can serve as a resource for the class to review and offer feedback on.

  • Student presentations.
