The screencast video I created is to introduce myself to my student’s families (parents/gardens) before the class year starts. This video would also be beneficial to send to parents whom may not be able to come to a parent-teacher night. Screen casting a picture slideshow like this would also be a good project for students to do to share about themselves that we could post on a classroom blog. If I was to actually use this video I would need to make sure I had subtitles in the languages of all of my families. Screen recording with quick time player is in theory an easy tool to use, however I had to redo the video quite a few times because of sound issues. Additionally, I would suggest going directly to youtube to upload the video rather than letting quick player upload it for you as it takes much more time that way.
Screen casting could also be very beneficial to present at a conference virtually as well as create cartoon videos where you draw out a concept and then voice over it to explain what you are drawing out. This would also be a fun way for students to show what they’ve learned about a concept as well.
