Our middle school counselor, Nicole Gerth, wanted a tool that would provide information and a personal touch when inviting staff to become involved in our E-Mentoring program. In the past an email was sent out with a presentation. With the inclusion of a recorded video and the presentation, a personal touch was provided!
Consider using Movenote for your next Screen Cast.

Movenote: Send video with Gmail
Impact On Students:
Creativity: Students can create written scripts which would force them to limit the words on the slide and increase the context of spoken word. The creativity can also be encouraged through the video shot that would take place and the visualization of the presentation.
Citizenship: As Movenote would like to be interactive, replies are available. Students need to focus on constructive replies that will be available on the world wide web forever.
Critical Thinking: Students and staff need to concentrate on the flow of the presenation and the words that correspond with the presentation. Many times we hear people say, "I know what I am doing, but I just don't know how to explain it." Critical thinking skills are need to explain the information.
