Frequently asked questions

Does Screencastify come with a blurred option while editing?

  • They do now! ...Hey there. Generally, we aren’t fans of blurry videos...but, we’ll make an exception to announce that Screencastify Edit now includes a blur tool.

Is Readworks being blocked because students say their page goes white and blank?

  • Readworks is not being blocked, but we have noticed that teachers add the default link to Readworks instead of adding the student link www.readworks.org/student. With this being said, Readworks is not on the district approved list that the tech department manages. Tech support is limited when it pertains to programs or websites not listed.

Do my students need to add Kami or is it pushed out to their account?

  • Kami is pushed out. Students can pin it to their extensions by going to the puzzle piece next to the 3 dots in the top right-hand corner and click the pin or when the student opens a PDF he/she can open with Kami. They do need to give permission to their Drive.
  • Do NOT have students turn in through Kami app. They close the PDF (it saves in G. Drive) and turn in through G. Classroom.

Do my students have access to Screencastify?

  • Screencastify was opened to students on the first day of school so teachers could walk them through it and go over the appropriate recording behavior with reminders of all videos going to their school G. Drive which is school property. Students can pin it to their extensions by going to the puzzle piece next to the 3 dots in the top right-hand corner and click the pin. 

How do I use GoGuardian with scenes, adding classes, deleting students, or if it says Student Offline?

  • Students need to be on district-provided Chromebooks. GoGuardian will not work if they are using their private devices.
  • In GoGuardian, there is a fantastic Help Center and LiveChat that would be able to assist on the spot while you are in the session with students. We are unable to do on our end.
  • Some resources: scenes for our district to try, go to "How To" folder link on left side to find GoGuardian, add classes, deleting students, it says Students Offline, How to use Teacher Chat, FAQs for GoGuardian.

What is happening with Grid View for G. Meet?

  • It is causing so many issues that it will be blocked from our domain. Please remove from your extension list if you have it and utilize the G. Meet features within the app. Please see G. Meet tips in the "How to" folder- Google Apps and Chrome folder.
  • This is a 3rd party extension and teachers may use but tech support is limited.

Can students start a G. Meet?

  • No, they have been blocked from creating a G. Meet. Teachers should be using the G. Meet feature through their G. Classroom. Teachers need to start G. Meet in order for students to enter. However, teachers need to make sure ALL students have left before ending the session. Students will not be allowed back in without the teacher. 

Why does it ask students to sign in to ConnectEd when I assign them a Resource or Assignment in G. Classroom?
