Screencastify Chrome Extension

Screencastify is my #1 favorite Chrome Extension for teachers and students. It has multiple uses for teachers and students, not the least of which is cloning the teacher. Do you have instructions or lessons that you find yourself repeating more than 3 times a day? If so, try recording it!

Use Screencastify for:
Mini-lessons: Your students can rewatch if they get stuck, catch up when they are absent, and much more.
Directions or explanations: Think stations or beginning of class procedures.
Student feedbackPull up a student product and speak your feedback.)
Student language or fluency practice
Student peer teaching or projects
