Simple Screencasting with Screencastify

I have to admit that one of my favorite screencasting tools is the Screencastify Chrome Extension! I have been using this for over a year and have found so many different applications. Screencastify is one of the easiest ways to record your entire desktop, browser tab, or webcam with no complicated screencasting software required. The best part is that Screencastify integrates with Google Drive.

I often use Screencastify to record myself when offering blended or online learning, to explain difficult concepts, and as a way to explain how to do something when I receive an email from a teacher or student.

The Screencastify team has spent over a year talking to teachers and scouring the internet to find some of the best classroom screencasting ideas. They have recently created and shared this ebook, 50 Ways to Use Screencastify in the Classroom, with their favorite Screencastify classroom activities that can be implemented by any teacher.

The uses for Screencastify are countless. What will you do with Screencastify?
