- Audio recording for teacher-student feedback or peer feedback.
This tool is great for use in elementary or secondary classrooms.
To get Screencastify, navigate to the Chrome Web Store using the Apps button in the upper left corner of your browser, or you can search for it in Google. Once there, search for the Screencastify extension and add it to your browser. You will see a film icon (see the image below).
Students can create digital products, like a document, a slideshow, images from a lab investigation, etc. and then use Screencastify to describe what they created and what their learning was. They can then turn in the video that was created to the teacher from Google Drive. This could be a great option for students who are working on language acquisition or verbal communication skills.
Recap is great for use in elementary or secondary classrooms.
