Amy- I am always down for a “Flip Grid for Dummies” class/video call! I’m definitely not an expert, but I would be more than willing to help out. If you are just starting out, I would for sure go ahead and set up an educator’s account and start clicking around the website and learning about some of the features.
Jen- Zoom can be accessed through any device as long as it has a camera and microphone. For hosting Zoom calls, a desktop or laptop is better (you can see more of the features/have a bit more control) but for just participating, any ole device will do. Great question!
