Worked Example Screencast

The last project for EdTech 513 was to create a worked example screencast. A worked example shows the step by step process of a task or problem solving.  I used Adobe Presenter for this project. This program works with PowerPoint and allows you to use your webcam when recording (I did not use mine for this project though) and can also record what you are doing on your screen as well.

For this project, I created a worked example for my students to explain how to use discussion boards. The discussion boards have been hard for my students because they did not understand what they needed to do. Many of them would just reply to other student’s post and not create a new thread. I hope this video will help them understand what is expected and how to use them effectively.


Digital Storytelling

I used Adobe Premiere Elements to put the digital story together. This program is fairly easy to use; however, there are still many things I need to learn about it.

Deciding what to write for the digital story was very hard for me. Then, I thought about what the advice I give my students when writing. I tell them to write about what they know. So I decided to do the digital story on our trip to Panama.

I think that students (especially those that don’t like writing) would enjoy taking some pictures from a trip they took with their family and use them to write a short narration about their experience. This could be an example for them to view.
