Screencastify

Is it right for you?!

In a world where we are expected to create and share digital lessons with our students, it is more important than ever that we have the resources to be successful. We often refer to our teachers “toolbox” when identifying a method or approach to introduce and refine a concept or skill, but how can we be most effective with our expectations while teaching online? It is hard and there will never be a replacement to the love and attention we offer our students with in person instruction, but we want to offer the best we have with what we’ve got and that brings me to Screencastify. A user friendly Google Chrome extension that allows you to create digital lessons shared effortlessly with the option of using your webcam to add a more personal experience for your students by recording your delivery.
