More Screencasting!

Last year in tech students created screencasts using Screencast-o-Matic.  As much as I love how easy this site is to use, for some reason our images on our school MacBooks doesn't like the site!  So we decided to instead use the screencasting tool built into QuickTime player (that was already on the student's laptops).

Students then set out to create a screencast about how to use a program or application on their computer.  They had specific guidelines that had to follow (see here), but pretty much had free reign to make a screencast on whatever they thought would be useful for others to know how to do.

I like this project for a couple of reasons...first, it teaches the students how to make a screencast.  And second, it creates a library of "how to" videos for other students (and teachers, and parents!) to learn from!  I've already sent out a few of these "how to" videos that the students made to others who were asking how to access a certain program (i.e. our online social studies textbook).

Anyways, here are a few of the student's screencasts.  Enjoy!
