May 19th – Lesson Plan

While I’m away, please watch my instructions below and refer to the steps below:


Use Screencastify to create 5-10 videos featuring the software that we have used this year:

  • Evernote
  • Blogger
  • LastPass
  • Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets
  • Prezi
  • PowToon
  • Twitter
  • Feedly
  • Gmail
  • Animoto
  • WeVideo
  • etc.

Project Files

Add the folder below to your Google Drive, then add the media files to your WeVideo account:


Upload your Screencastify videos to your media folder in We Video, then create a new video project. Your goal is to edit a cinematic trailer inspired video for the Tech Essentials class. Use the book trailer video from The Four Hour Chef below as inspiration for this project:


  • Trailers should be as long as the music file in the “Project Files” folder.
  • On Thursday, we will add footage that we record with digital cameras, so leave space
  • Try to synchronize your video cuts with the changes in the song
