Y’all… one of my absolute FAVE tech tools is Screenshot YouTube. It is the first Chrome extension I talk about in my course, and honestly, I wanted to cry the first time I used it because I couldn’t believe the time I had previously waisted, clipping, snipping, and painstakingly screenshotting each part of a clip I wanted to use for a Clip Chat. Now, some teachers prefer to just pause and play a short video like Hair Love (and it is actually my preference too) but others much prefer showing kids “screenshots” of the clip so they don’t whine as much with all the pausing and playing! Even if I prefer to just pause and play, I STILL need screenshots for all the follow up reading and writing extensions!
The first step is to “add” it to your chrome from the Google Chrome Webstore.
Go to the YouTube video you want to work with, and hit play. Then push the “screenshot” button as frequently as you want on the moments you want to “capture” as the clip plays!
Step 3: Find all the screenshots in your downloads…
Step 4: Simply drag those straight into a Google Slide show!
It is literally as SIMPLE as that! Isn’t that incredible!?
I know! Shout out to Diane Neubauer and her genius mind and giving heart for sharing this one with me!
Until next time,
Stay happy, stay safe, stay sane!
