Screencasting Part 1 - Flipped Learning, WeVideo, Google CS, & Scratch

Students in the Education Technologies Program learn how to make videos through screencasting and then apply the techniques to a flipped learning model. In this example, Rebecca Braungart used WeVideo (a web-based video production tool to record her screen and produce a finished video for her students (www.wevideo.com). These 6th grade students were required to use their ELA skills to make a creative story and then animate that story with coding skills learned with Google CS (https://www.cs-first.com) and a program called Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu). The screencast was given to students to assist them in completing the tasks. This example demonstrates the power of applying flipped learning methods with education technologies to empower students to take learning to the next level. Classes start 8/28.
