Screencast-o-matic

   I watched the two required videos today for my differentiation with technology class. The teacher brought up a variety of things I could use in the classroom. I thought of some ideas for Google Earth and problem solving and taking a poll with a site called polldaddy that we used once at a district institute day.

   There are so many tools, websites, and other fun things to use in my classroom from the internet. It is easy to get overwhelmed, so I have promised to pace myself trying one thing at a time. The one I chose to use today is screencast-o-matic.

   This website is a tool that allows the user to record a how-to of some sort using your desktop. It is meant to be short, sweet, and to the point. What's the best part for me? It was EASY to use. I was able to download the required software and use screencast is less than 5 minutes!

   I decided to do a short video of how I set up my desktop at work to keep myself organized during the week. Then I saved it to my files and here it is for your viewing pleasure! Please don't mind my daughters singing in the background.

  1. You did great on this, Lisa. I've never seen that use of the desktop--love finding out new approaches.
