For educators, I think one of the most practical uses of a screencast is recording a presentation or slideshow. This could be for students who are absent or might want to revisit a lesson.
In my screencast, I used an existing Ed Tech Methods lesson as an example. For Class 8, I created a Sway about where I’m from, Maui. I narrated this Sway as a self-introduction for people who might be want to get to know me or are interested in where I’m from. For example, I might present this on the first day of class and record it as I go.
Examples of integrating this could be: 1.) sending this to students who missed class that day, or 2.) sending it to parents who might want to learn more about me.
