What is the Discovery Library?
With 25,000+ community-generated Topics, the Flipgrid Discovery Library is the perfect spot to find inspiration from fellow educators and amazing featured Discovery Library partners! The Discovery Library is full of ready-to-use discussion prompts that are sure to get your students talking!
Find Your Next Topic
Explore Flipgrid Weekly Hits, the top-trending topics from the week, or dive into the Featured Discovery Playlist, where you’ll find featured educators from around the world as well as partners like Minecraft, Langston League, Made By Dyslexia, The MET, Wonderopolis or Anti-Defamation League.
Once you have found a Topic you want to use with your students, click on the blue dropdown “Select a Grid” and choose which Grid you want to host the Topic. Then you can add/change/update any element of the Topic in order to personalize the content for your classroom.
Remember, you can edit every aspect of the Topic and customize settings such as Video Response Length, Video Moderation, Topic Attachments, Features and more! When you are ready to engage your learners, just flip the switch from Inactive to Active and you're ready to roll!
Share with the Community
By contributing to the Discovery Library, you’re helping fellow educators learn unique ways to implement Flipgrid as they seek to transform learning and amplify student voice!
