What to put in your video?
Use Screencastify to record a welcome video.
I’d use the following outline for your video:
- Say hi and clearly state your name and where you teach (which buildings)
- Tell the students why you love Music or Art
- Tell the students an (appropriate) fun fact about yourself
- Say one or two sentences about what you’re hoping they learn this year
- Say you’ll see them in class!
How to add your video to your site:
- Copy the embed code from screencastify to add the video (this is on the right hand menu next to your recorded screencastify video)
- Click Add/ reorder (At bottom of box)
- Select Media/ Widget
- Paste the embed code into the box for Embed Code
Once your video is embedded, delete this text box
