(Slides 5-7 of Powerpoint)
| 5 min.|
| Illicit Performance||Step by step walk the students through how to use the screencasting software. |
Step 1: Putting together the word document that will be casted.
Step 2: Use Jing to annotate the image (Show the video from screentoaster about how to annotate the image using Jing as a way of reinforcing the explanation)
- Take a couple minutes and share the annotated images. Let the students walk around and peak at the other students' laptops.
Step 3: Use Screentoaster to explain each of the images. (Show the shockwave flash video of how to use screentoaster after explaining it so that the class sees the explination twice)
- Have the students e-mail the links to their screentoaster screencasts to the facilitator, and share them on the big screen.

| Provide Feedback|| During the work time, float around the classroom and be accessible for questions. Provide Feedback. || |
| Assess Performance||Allow the students to discuss possible strengths and weaknesses of each others videos as they are being shared. Also, as the facilitator comment on each of the videos. || 20 min. |
| || |
| Enhance Retention and Transfer|| Have the students use the 3 steps described above to do a project on their own. By having students construct their own project with less leadership, they are more likely to retain the information. |
(Slide 11 of Powerpoint)
Think-Pair-Share about advantages and disadvantages. Each student should think individually about advantages and disadvantages, then discuss them with another person at your table, then share in a whole class discussion.
(Slide 12 of Powerpoint)
