Attendees will learn how to incorporate screencasting in Social Studies and Science through Google Slides presentations. They will learn how using screencasting will support speaking and listening standards outside of traditional English Language Arts lessons/activities. Screencastomatic is a tool that students can learn how to use to create digital presentations which can be shared with peers and support staff. By sharing videos via Google Classroom peers can practice their asking and answering skills. Teachers can also share these videos with RSP teachers, Speech Therapists, and SST coordinators to provide an audio account of a student's progress. Educators will find that this tool can also help integrate English Language Development standards across content areas.

I currently teach 3rd grade in a general education classroom at a Title I school in Lakewood, CA for ABCUSD. I integrate technology into my curriculum and provide engaging activities that incorporate Google Apps for Education. I have held various leadership roles, such as, ELA/ELD site lead, AVID site coordinator, and district Teacher Induction Mentor. These roles have supported my journey on to becoming an educational trainer and consultant. I hope that my session will inspire your lessons and bring creativity into the classroom by incorporating various teaching strategies to meet the needs of your diverse learners.
