LNS Journal - Post 6 - Screencastify

It was very cool to see a couple of Lakeview teachers dig into the world of screen recording in the past couple of weeks.  One of the teachers was going to be at some outside learning opportunities and, therefore, not in her classroom for a couple of days, but wanted to ensure the students thoroughly understood the lesson.  By using "Screencastify", she was able to record herself presenting the material in the same way she would have while in the classroom, thus allowing learning to continue uninterrupted even without her physical presence.  Additionally, the screencast was posted in Google classroom, making the lessons available to the students at any time!

Another teacher, similarly, utilized "Screencastify" to help her students learn the ins and outs of an online app she was using called "Pixlr" (a free online version of Photoshop).  By recording the instruction, students are able to access the parts they need as they are ready to learn.  Additionally, if working at home, the instruction is available there, as well.

SUPER way to ensure that the Learning Never Stops.
