In this session, participants will learn a variety of ways that Google Forms and Screencastify can transform their instruction, specifically in our current remote learning environment.
Google Forms allows teachers to do everything from gathering student information simply and conveniently to converting current paper quizzes and tests into online assessments which are simple to grade and can be easily modified to meet the diverse needs of all learners.
Screencastify is an amazing tool that allows teachers to create and share screen recordings with students. One of the best ways to deliver information to your students in a remote learning environment is to create a screencast. However, many teachers have either never done this, or struggle to find the right tool to support them. Screencastify is your answer! We will discuss best practices for making screencasts and some ideas for having your students create them too.
