How To Use Flipd For Class (For Students)
First, join your Flipd class with the 5-digit class code provided by your instructor.  >>> Tap here if you don't know how to join your class <<< 1. Join an Active Class Once you're joined in the right class, you can Flip Off by selecting the Class option on the Flipd home screen. You can only Flip Off during class or up to 5 minutes prior when the class says 'Join Now'. For example, if your class is from 2-3 pm, you can Flip Off at 1:55 pm until 3 pm. If you attempt to Flip Off too early, you'll get a pop up telling you to come back later. 2. Check In for Attendance (optional) Once you've successfully started your Flipd session, check-in with your attendance code — but only if your professor is using Flipd attendance. Then set your phone aside and avoid checking notifications in order to maintain your Flipd progress while the class is active. You can still check in without an internet connection — just make sure that the attendance code entered is correct. When Flipd connects to the internet again, your attendance will successfully sync up.   3. How to stay Flipd Off Staying Flipd Off for the lecture means that you remain in the Flipd #class screen until the timer runs out. You can still lock your phone and set it aside, but if you open your phone and attempt to leave Flipd to check something you will get a notification to remind you that you have 10 seconds to return.  Tip: If you don't come back to Flipd within 10 seconds, the Flipd timer will expire. You can always start it again, but every minute you spend outside of Flipd will be measured in your progress.   If you're not in a Flipd Class yet You can still Flip Off for class even if you're not part of a class yet. All of your time accumulated during the class period will be synced up once you've joined the class. Join a class as soon as possible, or send a message to Flipd Support if you have trouble.  Pro Tip To stay Flipd Off for class, simply Flip Off your phone, lock your screen, and set your phone aside until class is over. Each time you open your screen, check your notifications, or leave Flipd during the countdown, you run the risk of ending the Flipd session. The point is to help you develop more intentional phone-use behavior, and this skill will help you in other important activities — like studying, writing, working, and even spending time with friends.

Getting Started With Flipd: A Guide For Educators
Jump to Taking Attendance and Polling With Flipd Cellphone distractions have become a reality in today's learning environment. While most students want to pay attention in class, disruptive notifications, cleverly-designed apps, and distractions from peers frequently pull a student's attention away. With a powerful influence on our lives, checking our devices has become so habitual that it's more often automatic and unintentional than not. So, what is Flipd? Flipd uses behavioral economics to nudge students to pay better attention by encouraging them to remain off of their phones. In addition, the platform provides educators with powerful data and tools they can use to improve long-term engagement and make more informed teaching decisions throughout the year. How Flipd works At the beginning of your lesson, students are notified to Flip Off their devices. Then, until the end of class, students make the conscious and intentional choice to remain off of their devices. If at any point a student decides to check their phone, Flipd will remind them to return to a Flipd Off state. If the student does not re-enable Flipd, their phone will be accessible and the student will be aware that they've made the decision to use their phone during class. After class is over, a detailed report is made available for you on the Flipd web-dashboard, illustrating how much time each student was Flipd Off during the lecture. This information can help you gather valuable lecture insights around engagement and participation. For example, the data Flipd collects lets you gather information like which lectures were more engaging than others or at what point in the lecture students are becoming disengaged. Additionally, many educators on our platform use Flipd to allocate additional credit or award other incentives based on student activity.  What's the benefit? Educators benefit from gaining insights about their learning environment and student engagement. For example, if you notice that students are on average using Flipd for only the first 30 minutes of a 1 hour class, that could suggest that the material gets heavy in the second half of the lecture and students are more likely to check out. In addition to improving their attention and listening skills, Flipd teaches digital citizenship and wellness by helping students become more intentional and mindful technology users. With Flipd, students are more aware of their phone habits, which can positively impact other times in their lives when they might tend to use their electronic devices unintentionally. In addition to improving their attention and listening skills, Flipd teaches digital citizenship by helping students become more intentional and mindful technology users. 1. How to register
