For my screencast video, I decided to do a lesson on internet literacy and how to find reputable resources online. In our digital society, kids are being inundated with information they find online and it is important for them to know, especially when doing work for school, what information they can trust. I remember doing lessons on this when I was in high school, but I can see a need for these lessons at younger ages now, so I designed this lesson that would probably best suit 3rd – 6th graders.
I think screencasting is a really useful tool, especially considering the situation we are in currently where students cannot physically be in the classroom. This would be a great way for teachers to continue to present material, and students can work through it at their own pace on their time.
