Screencast with SmartBoard

On May 17, 2007 a screencast of Google.com math features was created during the Global Learners Professional Development. The screencast was captured within SmartBoard software and then uploaded to youtube. I have embedded the video here as an example of how this can be done. The video could be improved by using better examples. However, I can see the value to our students of screencasts just like this. Imagine a scenario where a student missed class or just didn't follow what your explanation of an Algebra problem. If the screencast of the problem being worked were captured and loaded to a class blog the student could go back at any time and review. Anyone interested in trying this? If you are post the result on this blog.

If you are interested in getting a head start on using the SmartBoard and its features such as screen recording you need to install the SmartBoard software on your new Dell laptops (found on your CD your received on May 3). You can investigate and practice features like screen recording without a SmartBoard attached. We will have in depth SmartBoard training at one of our upcoming PD sessions. Who among you wants to give this stuff a try?
