Enhance student explanations using Keynote with live video. #DPtech #FJHtech

This is a fun formative assessment for students to show their understanding of the atomic model and how the subatomic particles relate to the periodic table. This can be used with any topic, not just the atomic model. Students use Keynote with live video and the screen recording feature to record themselves explaining the difficult concept.

In our classes, we use this in a similar way to the taboo game. Students are restricted from saying keywords such as proton, neutron, and electron in their videos to promote higher-level thinking with explanations. If students have a stylus, they can also mark the keynote and add a laser pointer with the recordings.


When having students create their keynotes, it is helpful to flip the live video vertically. This will allow students to have better orientation when pointing at objects on the keynote as they will not be inversed.


Side note: if you are short on instructional time, you can deliver a premade keynote like the one attached using the schoolwork application.
