Screencast-o-matic

My lessons just haven’t been the same since I found out about this great computer screen recording tool, Screencast-o-matic: http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/screen_recorder

This tool is really easy to use!

You can save or upload your video into YouTube, you can embed your video into your webpage, blog or wiki and share with your students and other teachers.

Check out some of the PowerPoint presentations my students created and shared with their classmates, using screencast-o-matic.

Not only can your student record their presentations, but teachers can record their lessons for student to refer back to them later on!

Ever have students constantly asking questions about how to do something on the computers? By providing your students with a step by step video, they can watch it as many times as they need to in order to understand what they need to do!

Any online teachers out there??? What a great tool for students to use to be able to share their projects with peers in their virtual classroom.

Ready, set, record!

Supporting Bloom’s Taxonomy in a Digital World

On October 6th, 2011, I participated in an amazing Webinar, offered by SimpleK12, that shared a lot of very useful tools for our classroom.

I hope you find these applications useful as they are also very well organized for each level of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
