Screencasting overview
Screencasting Overview

  • Screencasts have emerged as a prominent teaching tool in classrooms today.

  • Ascreencast is a digital video and audio recording of what occurs on a presenter’s computer screen and can be used for tutorials, demonstrations, digital storytellingand narrated PowerPoint presentations.

  • A screencast can be used in any class as a part of real-time instruction or as the lesson itself as in the flipped teaching model. 

Flipped classroom
Flipped Classroom

  • Recently there has been a lot of “buzz” generated on the "flipped classroom".

  • The main idea behind the flip classroom model is it essentially reverses traditional teaching.

  • Instead of lectures occurring in the classroom and assignments being done out of class, the opposite occurs.

  • Lectures are viewed online out of class by students, via videos (found online or created by the teacher), and class time is devoted to assignments or projects based on this knowledge.

  • Objectives - Specify the learning objectives of the screencast.

  • Script/Outline- From the objectives write out a script and/or outline.

  • Record - Make the screencast recording. Keep the screencast no more than 12 minutes.

  • Post-production – Create a title slide – music sound track – transitions, etc.
