How I Use It
I have used Screencastify in multiple ways. As a teacher, I have used it to video slide presentations and information for students in centers and for when I have had unplanned absences. I have used it for school PD, to reach out to staff members. I have used it as a tool to check for students understanding and checking for deeper learning. With our document cameras you can also video what you are showing online along with real time in class instruction to post for those absent, or for students to reference in the future.
My Take
I think this is a versatile teaching tool! Teachers can use it for classes and for PD. Giving access to students and staff to what is happening in your classes. Students have used it to demonstrate their knowledge and learning. They have used it to demonstrate their synthesis of connections from historical events to the current events that are impacting our world today!
