The pace of digital technology change is such that everyone is being left behind. It is important to develop skills which allow adaptation rather than mastery. The object is not to understand one type of digital technology, but to have skills that allow us to move from one to another as they emerge and work together.

Just-for-Me Training by Screencasting - American Libraries

Just-for-Me Training by Screencasting - American Libraries | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

By Meredith Farkas:
Librarians in all types of libraries provide training and instruction. Whether it's for staff or patrons, the timing of the training is usually critical.

 

"Even when we get the timing right, infrequent use of a tool on which people were trained will lead to forgetting. [...]

Screencasting software, technology that creates a video of activity on the computer screen along with the user’s narration, is sometimes used to solve this problem. The software allows a trainer to create videos that show specific processes within a web system so that users who have gone through a training can refresh their memory with a video later on."
