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!
