“I can think of countless ways that I might use this, I think this tool is fantastic. A seamless video reflection tool. There’s tons of things I like about it. One thing I really like is that there’s no downloading or uploading a video. The video is instantly shared from the student portal directly to the teacher portal.”

Greg Kulowiec, EdTechTeacher instructor and former history teacher

“I have loved using Recap! I have been teaching ESL for eight years. This year, our annual English proficiency test went to an online format. Recap will be the perfect way to allow my students to practice the speaking part of the test. It has also been a great motivator for my kids to rehearse reading and then record themselves. They really love it. They even ask for more Recap assignments! Thank you so much!”

Renee Pearce, ESL Teacher at LaFayette Elementary School

“I have been using Recap for a couple of weeks. I love it I get information on what they actually know about science instead of how well they express it in writing. And students know their videos may pop up in class so they are motivated to put a little extra thought into it. The support is also great!! When I had a question, I got an answer within a couple of hours.”

Laura Riehemann Turner, Middle School Science Teacher

“I use Recap as an exit slip and formative assessment. I’ve used it in Health and PE to share video reflections of questions that are posed to my students. A video reflection is a great tool for those students who might have a hard time physically writing what they want to say.”

Kaitlyn Bloemer, Middle School Physical Education and Health Teacher

“The students were shy at first but are able to articulate their mathematical process now with amazing academic vocabulary. For me, the best part is identifying their error and being able to dialogue between each other for instant feedback!”

Nancy Squatrito-Kilborn, Middle School Math Teacher

“My students and I are really enjoying learning to use the Recap app. It has been incredible listening to them talk about their learning, especially in math. Other teachers in my school are asking about it…”

Jerrod Ball, High School Teacher

“I am absolutely LOVING this tool!!! I know of many students who would thoroughly enjoy this…and teachers will as well–authentic feedback/assessment from the students and it’s VERY easy to use!!”

Kate Carlson, Middle School Teacher

“Recap is a great tool for parent-teacher conferences. I can actually show parents how their kids’ verbal skills and comprehension improve instead of just showing them a test score.”

Peter Wong, Middle School Science Teacher

“Many students struggle with written comprehension questions. With Recap, they can express themselves and demonstrate understanding of the subject matter independently of their writing.”

Julie Schumacher, Elementary Educator
