Back to School: Make Opening Night More Engaging!

Screencastify Squad

Back to school season is officially upon us. But while it’s here in season, school is not officially in session until Day 1. And if you’re looking for ways to make the official back-to-school night more engaging, we have the answer. Video is the sure fire way to make the evening more engaging and effective.

With Screencastify, you can quickly create videos about a wide range of different topics. Just a few examples: 

  • Record a quick “Meet the Teacher” video
  • Give a sneak peek at your unique classroom 
  • Set expectations for the coming school year
  • Share a look into what curriculum can be expected

Best of all, you can easily share these informational videos via QR codes on a handout when parents arrive at your door on opening night.

With these helpful videos, they can keep the handout and review the videos any time they want! And if some parents are busy and unable to attend, you will still be able to make sure they get all the important back-to-school information that they and their students need. 

You can also use those same videos and share links via email or through a text message.
