Video Tools

Flipgrid - Facilitate video discussion, each grid is like a message board where teachers can pose questions, called "topics," and their students can post video responses that appear in a tiled grid display. Here's an idea for teaching lessons through it. A whiteboard has also been added. You can now record a whiteboard style instructional video for up to five minutes then publish it for your students to watch and respond to. Watch this video to see how the whiteboard function works.

Screencastify - Use Screencastify to record your screen, voice and yourself while giving instructions and guiding students through some learning materials from a distance.

The presentation is made available from a San Bernardino County Schools Webinar on using Screencastify.
