Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 4, 3:50 PM

Screencasting has potential for allowing students to publish their learning to a real audience and thus can build engagement and positivity. We can easily underestimate the importance in the development of cognitive and social skills of public speaking and the creation of material for others to consider.

Patricia Flavin's curator insight, February 5, 8:37 AM

I've had student leaders (coaches) try screencasting. Although at first it's work but so worth it - a win-win situation for all.
