Screencasting on a Budget

Screencasting is a way to capture what’s happening on your computer screen while allowing you to narrate with your voice. It’s a tool that’s become popular on many sites such as Khan Academy and Learn Zillion. It’s an incredible way to record tutorials for your students or check for understanding by having them create their own! Screencasting can become extremely expensive if you try to get all the best equipment. Multimedia in the Classroom. A.

Multimedia in the Classroom

What is Multimedia? There are many definitions of multimedia -- some of us can remember when multimedia meant using a slide-tape program, where a beep signified the display of the next 35mm slide (others might remember flannel boards or 8-track tapes, but we won't go there)! For this class, we will define multimedia as the integration of text, graphics, animation, sound, and/or video. Using this very broad definition of multimedia, multimedia in the classroom could include Power Point presentations that are created by the teacher, commercial software (such as multimedia encyclopedias) that is used for reference or instruction, or activities that directly engage the students in using multimedia to construct and convey knowledge.

Ms. Pollington's Wiki Space - Video Integration. Technology Integration Matrix. The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students.

Technology Integration Matrix

The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Video in the Classroom. Video projects teach students to plan, organize, write, communicate, collaborate, and analyze.

Video in the Classroom

In fact, video has become so prolific that some colleges even include video submissions as part of their application process. As this media further matures, students may need to be able to express themselves as effectively through moving imagery as with the written word. Using video could be as simple as recording a student oral presentation for future review, or as elaborate as producing an original short film. Depending on the complexity of the project, consider these suggested steps for ensuring that your students create thoughtful final products that demonstrate their knowledge rather than pieces full of flash but potentially lacking in substance. One of the most complicated aspects of working with video is interpreting the various file formats that work with cameras as well as editing and publishing tools.

Daily Media Use Among Children and Teens Up Dramatically From Five Years Ago. Most Youth Say They Have No Rules About How Much Time They Can Spend With TV, Video Games, or Computers WASHINGTON – With technology allowing nearly 24-hour media access as children and teens go about their daily lives, the amount of time young people spend with entertainment media has risen dramatically, especially among minority youth, according to a study released today by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Daily Media Use Among Children and Teens Up Dramatically From Five Years Ago

Today, 8-18 year-olds devote an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes (7:38) to using entertainment media across a typical day (more than 53 hours a week). And because they spend so much of that time ‘media multitasking’ (using more than one medium at a time), they actually manage to pack a total of 10 hours and 45 minutes (10:45) worth of media content into those 7½ hours. The amount of time spent with media increased by an hour and seventeen minutes a day over the past five years, from 6:21 in 2004 to 7:38 today. Mobile media driving increased consumption. Pedagogical benefits of video for teaching and learning. There are many benefits to using video in education as shown in several decades of research.

Pedagogical benefits of video for teaching and learning

Salman Khan in 'Let's use video to reinvent education' (20 mins) describes the transformative way video can impact on teaching and learning and encourages teachers to consider the flipped classroom model where learners can digest lecture content at their pace and explore content more deeply during class time.
