Screencastify Simplifies How-To’s

1

Alrighty, if you did not download Google Chrome after reading my last blog post here then you are about to be really sad. Grab the tissues.

I am all about Google right now and hopefully you are exploring for yourself how using Google apps, drive, and Chrome in combination can enrich your teaching and your student’s learning!

Screencastify is an extremely functional extension that you can simply add to your Google Chrome world via the Chrome Web Store. Here is a little video about the Chrome Web Store that I made with Screencastify (so cool!!) In it you can see how I use Screencastify to record or pause by clicking on the icon in the top right of the screen.

Enjoy!

Just imagine how many things you could use Screencastify for! Tour of band website, tour of instructional videos and how to use them, how to use a new theory website, or use that theory website to host a lesson of yours (just use proper citing and permissions!), how to log on to Charms (I already did this one!), how to join in on and watch the live event of our concert on YouTube….so many possibilities!!

See? I knew you would be sad if you didn’t have Chrome yet!

Here’s my Charms video – Screencastify can record JUST the tab you are currently in as well as the entire window or desktop. This video had just the tab recorded and turned out fairly cleanly! I hope that it will be helpful for parents and it took NO time to make!

Have you used Screencastify before?

What screencast types of videos are you going to make?!
