Microsoft and Flipgrid unite for social learning

Microsoft has announced the acquisition of Flipgrid, a video-based social learning platform for pre-kindergarten to PhD-level educators, students and families. 

Flipgrid is a tool used to help students define, share and respect the diversity of their voices; teachers assign homework, students respond by recording short video messages. This is believed to strengthen emotional skills beyond the traditional curricula – “skills the company's recent research says will be required in 30% to 40% of the fastest-growing occupations” according to the company announcement.
