How to Use Screencastify in Today’s Modern Classroom

Screencastify Squad

Harnessing the power of pause ⏸ and rewind ⏪ to support student learning is the path to never writing a sub plan again! 

Screencastify has teamed up with Modern Classrooms Project to help drive the mission of sharing the future of education and student-centered support through a blended, self-paced, mastery-based learning environment.

Screencastify recently joined Toni Rose Deanon, Modern Classrooms Project's Community Engagement Manager, to explore how you can use Screencastify to make learning more personal with simple, on-demand videos. 

Read on to see how Screencastify can change the way educators share content and lessons with students.👇

Part 1: Instructional video 🎬

Instructional videos are a great way to improve engagement in the classroom while letting students learn asynchronously. They also empower students to watch — and rewatch — any video at their own pace. 

Scan the QR code above to see just one real-world example of an instructional video that you can replicate for nearly any math problem!

Bonus Tip: You can use Screencastify to generate QR codes so students can watch on nearly any device! Learn how to merge the offline and online worlds here

Part 2: Creating videos 🎥

Once you’ve tried out the QR code above and see what the students will experience when watching a video, you’re ready to start creating your own videos! Once you’ve added the Screencastify Chrome browser extension (or logged into your account), you’re ready to get started.

Bonus Tip: Listen to this episode of EdTech Heroes to learn how to improve your videos’ watchability. 

Part 3: Student expression 🙋

Video in the classroom is about much more than providing great content for your students. It’s about letting them share their own voices and creativity as well.
