A new app from ECISD is keeping students engaged while getting them out of the classroom to learn.

According to NewsWest 9, the app is called FlipGrid and it engages students on many topics by sending them quick video clips.

The app must be approved by parents before the student can use it and all videos are moderated and approved before they are posted.

ECISD hopes this app is the next step in using technology and innovation to heighten curiosity for students.
