I instantly realized that this can be a very powerful tool for my students to practice their Spanish.
To have my students use the webcam they first created a Google presentation with their conversations in Spanish. The next step would be to record a screencast where they would present their presentations right on their Chromebooks. I chose to use the Chrome extension Screencastify because it downloads right to Google Drive and gives you the option to imbed a webcam.
The finished works came out great and now my students can reflect on how they look and sound when speaking in Spanish. It provides a great opportunity for a digital portfolio where the student can now hear and see themselves speaking a new language.
Here is one screencast from a student who created an excellent podcast all done with Google slides and Screencastify on a Chromebook.
