This afternoon I was talking with a teacher-friend about all the things we want to teach our students and co-workers to do with Google Chrome and Google Drive. As I left school, I thought about our conversation and went over my list in my head. As a teacher, one of my favorite tools is Flubaroo. Flubaroo is an add-on that can be used with Google Form responses (Google Sheets) to grade assignments. I decided to create my first "how to" video using Screencastify. Several of my students have used this extention so I thought I would give it a try. First of all, I don't like the way my voice sounds so this was a bit out of my comfort zone. I quickly learned that you have to know exactly what you are going to say and what you need to show. I fumbled over my words a little and even said punctuation when I meant capitalization. It's also a good idea to create the video alone. I had my 8 year old sitting at the table with me. You will hear me laugh a little because of his facial response when his sample grade was a 60. Lastly, I will note how proud I am of my students that have created teaching screen casts.
If you are interested in how to create a self grading spelling test using Google Forms and Flubaroo, watch my video below.
