Ways to ScreenCastify in Teaching and Learning

Book Trailers

A book trailer essentially is the same idea as a movie trailer – it provides a dynamic way to introduce the plot, characters, setting, and conflict to entice a viewer or reader to seek out the full version. Students could use this concept to demonstrate their knowledge of a historical event, document, or person from their story.

Scene Reenactments

Students can use video to re-create their interpretation of significant scenes in their stories. By using video, rather than just performing a skit, students can also integrate music, images, and even other video clips.

Public Service Announcements and Advertisements

Students can use the format of a public service announcement or advertisement to teach a concept, explain a theme, or promote an author. These formats can be applied to practically any topic.

Steps of the Writing Process
Students can design a screencast that follows the Stages of their Writing Process.

Common Core Integration

Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.
