Chrome App/Ext Review 001 - Google Cast, Voicethread and Screencastify

The first in our weekly series of app reviews and demonstrations.

Google Cast For Education

This allows your students using Chrome to "cast" their screen to yours. This makes it easy for the student to share their work, or a resource they have discovered on your projector so others can learn from it.

Screencastify records whatever is on your screen, including audio, microphone, and webcam inputs. Students and teachers can make how-to videos or demonstrate learning in many other ways. Videos are automatically stored in your Google Drive, making this tool simple and versatile.
