Technology Coaches Corner
"Effective integration of technology is achieved when students are able to select technology tools to help them obtain information in a timely manner, analyze and synthesize the information, and present it professionally. The technology should become an integral part of how the classroom functions -- as accessible as all other classroom tools."-- NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY STANDARDS FOR STUDENTS, INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR TECHNOLOGY IN EDUCATION

Screecastify- Record Your computer screen
ScreenCastify is an extension in Chrome and it works by recording your screen as well as using the microphone of your computer for audio. It works out-of-the-box, is ridiculously easy to use, integrates with Google Drive, and is free!
To get started, go to the Chrome web store and search for ScreenCastify (or click here).
Add to chrome. The icon will then appear in the toolbar of your web browser
Allow Screencastify to save in your Google Drive. Then, you can change the sharing settings of each video. I recommend setting these to “Can be accessed by Anyone in Saginaw Public Schools or “Can be accessed by Anyone with the link.”
That's it. You're ready to go. Whenever you want to capture the screen, just click the ScreenCastify icon in the Extension Bar. Hit the "Start Recording" button, and make a video! Please contact a coach if you would like a one to one demonstration. Please contact an IT coach for a demonstration.

Google Forms for Summative or Formative Assessment- No more Scranton!
When creating the Google Form the teacher would set it up in this fashion- Last Name, First Name; Form Letter (if they had one, but the test was no different); in the question put 1. and multiple choice answers would be A, B, C, D (however many choices you had); make it required; duplicate the questions for the amount of questions you had; lastly renumber and then your done.
