22 Million Stories - The 2017-18 School Year in Review

James Francis

Here’s a fun fact: 22 million videos were created with Screencastify during the 2017-18 school year 🤩

If that doesn’t impress you, try these on for size:

  • Screencastifiers have recorded one video per second since September 1, 2017
  • If you watched all the videos one after another, it would take you 245 years (no bathroom breaks) 🚽
  • You’d need more than 160,000 Chromebooks to store all the videos

The education world should be proud.

Those 22 million videos are more than just a cool stat. They’re an indicator of a more effective and equal education system.

No matter your learning style, speed or environment, video-based instruction empowers students to learn at their own pace, in their own way. And we're humbled to be a part of that.

Ah, the memories we’ve made 🧡

As the school year ends and teachers and students are greeted with some well-deserved time off, we thought it’d be fun to look back at some of our favorite ways you all have used Screencastify in the classroom.

We saw people screencasting in the hallways, principals office, gym, music room, playground and more! You all never cease to amaze us with your creativity and passion.

So without further ado, here are our favorite 2017-18 memories! If we missed one, let us know on Twitter and we'll add it to the list.

We'd like to send a heartfelt thank you to all the teachers who have shared so much with us this year (and to all you dedicated readers who have made it to the end of this post). Keep sending us your pictures and videos on Twitter @Screencastify - we love seeing them.

Here's to another successful school year, and have a wonderful summer!
