A screencast is a video recording of the screen on your computer or mobile device. In education, it is typically used to create how-to videos, but it can also be used for grading student work, showing student knowledge on a given topic, or narrating a slide deck. The ability to do this well is quickly becoming a core competency for teachers, especially in the age of blended and flipped classrooms. It's also a really useful skill if you are involved in any kind of professional development at your district.
To create a really good screencast, you need to break it up into three distinct parts. In this blog post we will look at some simple changes you can make before you record, while you record, and after you record, in order to maximize the impact of the screencasts you create at your school.
These are some of my favorite tips for creating a really good screencast. Do you have tips for screencasting that you would like to share? What about your favorite screencasting tool? Leave a comment below if you would like to share that with others.
