The Road to 10 Million Users!
Nefertiti Dukes | March 01, 2019
It's official: there are more than 10 million Screencastify users worldwide!
Wow! We've come a long way. When we started, our founder Manu had a simple thought: screen recording shouldn't require a high level of technical expertise, bulky software, or a powerful machine. He set out to achieve what was then impossible. Now, screen recording is possible with a simple Chrome extension.
Do you remember what it was like? David Chan, the Director of Technology at Evanston Township High School, does!
Wow! The things you've accomplished on the way to 10 million! ✅
As a company, we are constantly amazed at the creative ways you all have found to use Screencastify. You all have used it across subjects, grade levels, and countries. We thought it would be cool to take a look at some of the most creative uses over the years.
Take a look at some of the best screencasters below. If we've missed your creative use, join our #communityofcasters on Twitter and let us know.
The creative recording venues are always fun!
Yay! Our tiny recording booths are being used to record screencasts via @Screencastify for our @GoogleForEdu Applied Digital Skills Project. We’ll post them to @Flipgrid when they’re completed! #igniteD205 #applieddigitalskills #screencastify #flipgrid #googleei pic.twitter.com/M9GBPUwX9k— Jennifer Leban (@mrsleban) November 6, 2018
BIG SHOUTOUT AND THANK YOU to @Screencastify for their generous donation to my classroom project on @DonorsChoose!— Mrs. A (@Almada_Mrs) November 1, 2018
Ss have gotten so into recording their #screencasts - they came up with the idea of adding a cup on top of their recording booths to indicate they’re recording! pic.twitter.com/wv6FeniW7R
Ya'll have found some creative ways to #cloneyourself 🙍♂️➡🙍♂️🙍♂️
I’m at home today with my daughter who has the flu. I was still able to be a part of the instruction thanks to @Screencastify where I could explain the activity. The sub sent me a picture of my Ss and said “It was challenging but they loved it!” pic.twitter.com/PncMpga5gH— Amanda Klare, NBCT (@klarebeechwood) December 18, 2018
I’m out of the state for a Disneyland weekend, but thanks to @Screencastify and #GoogleClassroom, I can easily send a message to my students! I also posted the video to our class Facebook page! So many ways to communicate with students & parents! 😁💻🗣 #DVUSDTech pic.twitter.com/LNUJuzk9qs— Roxi Thompson (@roxi_thompson) December 17, 2018
Day 2 of no voice 😒 my @Screencastify video comes to the rescue yet again! So happy I record math videos to help my students 🙌🏻 #boldschool #cdsdchat #achieveit #leadered #5thchat #educhat pic.twitter.com/Ud3ZMcA3D1— Kristin Gainer (@KGainerteacher) November 16, 2018
Day 3: One of my favorite extensions is #screencastify - especially when I have a technology lesson for a substitute! Then the adults and students in the room can still hear my instructions!#PWEpaws #12DaysTwitter #HSEFutureReady https://t.co/64383a98mc— Ellie Michaelis (@PWEmedia) December 6, 2018
We can't leave out the app-smashing fun! 👊
A5: Appsmash @screencastify and @flipgrid. Give every student a grid (they’re freeeee!!) have the kids make reflection videos of their work and upload them to their grid. Great for sharing with parents! #tlap https://t.co/mIJSplsXu2— Stella Pollard (@Stella_Pollard) December 18, 2018
Appsmash @googlemaps with other apps. Drag yellow guy into the map to see street view. Use @Screencastify to record screen as they take a walking tour. Upload the videos to @Flipgrid & ss can view each other's videos. @Savvy_Educator @DitchThatTxtbk #DitchSummit #flipgridfever pic.twitter.com/fMuY70GyAZ— Jason Lay (@jlay02) December 17, 2018

Excited to #ShareScreencastify with @sswift74 bio Ss tomorrow as they insert a picture of their DNA models into Slides and then use @Screencastify to record their explanations and new understanding. #futurereadylibs #tlchat— Brooksie Kramer (@BrooksieBKramer) February 15, 2019
