Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison | Educational technology | Scoop.it

A screencast is a digital recording of a computer screen with audio narration. Screencasts can include telestrator (‘John Madden pen’) annotations. Narrated slideshows include audio recordings synchronized to images without hand-drawn annotations.

Screencasts and narrated slideshows can be created with two kinds of tools:

1. Browser-based: Create an account on the website and use a modern web browser like Google Chrome or FireFox to record, save and share it.

2. Client-based: Download and install software on a computing device to record and save.

This looks like it would be something that could be really handy for prodjects for class. that way we could not only have all of the information in front of us to see, but also hear whats going on as well.

How To Create A Custom Search Engine For Your Students

How To Create A Custom Search Engine For Your Students | Educational technology | Scoop.it

"While many teachers embrace the chaos of digital research (it is the “real world,” after all), for others setting students loose on Google is a recipe for a research project chock-full of Yahoo! Answers and other less-than-ideal information sources... Luckily, Google gives you the option to customize students’ search experience to rope off certain sections of the internet, or to gently emphasize others. (In fact, you could even have students create their own custom search engine as a part of the project itself.)"
