Screencastify is the #1 screen recorder for Google Chrome. Capture, edit and share videos in seconds.



Screencastify is a Google Chrome extension that is available from the Chrome web store. It enables you to create screencasts and videos on a Windows, Mac, or Chromebook. In addition to recording your screen, it combines annotation tools, record from your microphone for voice over, and you can record yourself with a picture-in-picture overlay of your webcam. Everything you record is saved to Google Drive so you can easily share the video with students, embed it on a Google Site, or upload to YouTube.

You can use Screencastify to create recorded lessons, tutorials, or giving feedback. It is often quicker and easier to convey how to do something in a video, rather than writing a long list of steps. To see an example of Screencastify in action view my video below.

The TED-Ed project — TED’s education initiative — makes short video lessons worth sharing, aimed at educators and students. Within TED-Ed’s growing library of lessons, you will find carefully curated educational videos, many of which are collaborations between educators and animators nominated through the TED-Ed platform.

Our very own Director of Humanities, Mark Robinson, has collaborated with TED-Ed to make range of videos:

FlippedLaw is your complete guide to A Level Law and includes resources written by experienced, successful law teachers and examiners.

It covers Contract Law, Criminal Law, Human Rights, Tort Law, Law Making, the English Legal System and the Concepts of Law.

It is a paid for subscription but whilst at Barton Peveril, you can log in and use it for free, just speak to the Library for a username and password.

Edpuzzle allows you to build a video bank from a number of places across the internet which you can then share with your class.



Edpuzzle also allows you to track who in your class has actually viewed the video. Perfect for Flipped Learning, you could assign the video for the students to watch before or after class then check to see if the students are viewing the material or not.

The Chrome extension adds a small button on to the page of a YouTube video when you watch one, when you click it you can then add it to your Class and add your own voice over, interactive questions or annotations if you want students to really focus on a certain section or idea.

The best part? It’s free for educators! Like the sound of all this? Check out Edpuzzle user Ms Oudiz uses it to improve her students essay writing skills as well as checking out the Edpuzzle blog posts where some of the posts are written by education experts as guest writers.
