Chromebooks and Cameras Tech Tip - February 2017

Create a BookSnap or a VocabSnap

Using Google Draw, take an snapshot of the text and annotate on top if it with images, text boxes and the bibliographical info about the book. These can be shared through Google Classroom, added to a Google Slides presentation or sent out through social media. Be sure to tag the author whenever possible. This is also good to analyze primary source documents.

VocabSnaps is the same idea, just add definitions, examples of the work being used in a sentence and images to bring the word to life.

Booksnap based on "Kids Deserve It."


An idea I learned about from Alice Keeler, you could have students take a picture of a problem they are working on and post it to a classroom slideshow. Have another student look at that problem and add an explanation of why it is wrong and how to solve it correctly. Check out the link below for a sample of this.

Video Reflection using Screencastify

Screencasitify lets students take videos though the webcams or screencasts of what they are doing on the computer. With this extension students can record short oral responses, quick demos of learning, labs or a storytelling project. Videos are saved to Google Drive for sharing.
