Thank you so much Charissa! I will definitely be playing around with screencastify as I've never used it before but we have lots of experience with our online classes!  I've thought about flipgrid as well but I didn't know you could like it to a google assignment, that's awesome.  It definitely makes my life a little bit easier.

I am a student teacher for 9th grade physical science.  With all of the distance learning going on, how are we supposed to truthfully and ethically test our students' understanding about the concepts they are required to learn?  In all honesty, if a student has intentions of cheating, they are going to do it.  But what about standardized tests, etc?

Thank you so much for this post!  I've already found so many useful videos and demos for my students to refer to when gaining a deeper understanding of the Physics Concepts about Waves.
