This “thing” called “Screencasting” will show students how to create “how to” demonstrations of their on-screen performance using free tools like Screencast-o-matic and Jing. In situations where students are not able to appear on-screen due to parent permission or AUP issues, cartoons and avatars are a workable substitute. Therefore, students will learn about the free tools available for creating cartoons and animated presentations. For additional information about Screencasting, visit the 21things4teachers site and click on the thing called “Flipping the Classroom”.
