Tips from the Twittersphere
Nefertiti Dukes | September 06, 2018
Twitter has become ground zero for sharing teacher tips. The screencastin' community has come up with some especially invaluable insight. So, we decided to share a few tidbits on a blog post.
Don't worry: We plan to add to this as we get more insight from Twitter.
Have Students use Screencastify:
- Elevate critical thinking by having students discuss their arguments in Screencastify
I’ll have my students screencast their arguments and walk me through their thinking. Also showed a math teacher how to do the same thing. Then you can appsmash and upload to @Flipgrid or easily insert to an assignment in #GSuite since it saves to Drive.— Nathan Perry (@n8than_thomas) August 23, 2018
- Have students teach each other by creating tutorials with Screencastify
Love this!This year we used it to have Ss create tutorials with tips and tricks for teachers when using Chromebooks & @GoogleForEdu !They have some amazing tricks & tips! Ss also created tutorials for other students to refer to for support in Math & English! #alwayslearning— Marissa Smith (@marissasmith105) August 23, 2018
- Have students create an amazing newsletter
Use Screencastify in conjunction with other apps:
- Create a Staff Flipgrid of Screencastify videos
Can’t DM you but I’d be happy to share. I’ve created a staff Flipgrid that hosts all of the Screencastify videos I make. So It’s great for staff to find snippet helper videos, all in one place.— Scott Titmas (@sdtitmas) August 23, 2018
