Repost: Recap app for formative assessment

Dec 20, 2016 by

RecapThe Recap app is an easy way for students to respond to questions posed by the teacher in a video format.  Teachers create assignments or prompts on a web browser and then assign them to students.  Students use the camera on an iPad to record a video response and then submit it to the teacher for review.  Teachers can share the video responses with parents, peers, or other teachers.  The Recap app is a great way for teachers to keep track of students progress over the course of the year.  This app is also a great tool for  English language learners or those studying world languages- they can see how fluent they are and what they need to work on.  Check it out!
