5 Ways to Get the Most Out of Professional Development With Screencasting - Daily Genius

5 Ways to Get the Most Out of Professional Development With Screencasting - Daily Genius | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“ Screencasts are typically short video recordings of what is taking place on the screen of a computer or mobile device. They provide students with a dynamic way to make thinking visible, as they can demonstrate what they know through a variety of modalities such as drawing, typing, voice narration, and video. However, what is sometimes overlooked is the power of the screencast in the hands of teachers. As the new school year begins, consider these three ways to utilize screencasting to facilitate communication and foster a stronger home-school connection.”

Every fish species on Earth might soon be downloadable | Michael Irving | GizMag.com | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

A professor at the University of Washington (UW) wants to catch 'em all, but he isn't content with just collecting hundreds of Pokemon. His ambitions are a little loftier, aiming to collect and scan all 25,000 known species of fish, to create 3D models of their skeletons which can then be freely downloaded, 3D-printed and studied. Real fish specimens can be difficult and costly to come by, so, much like Massey University's 3D printable cane toad skeletons, UW professor Adam Summers is trying to make it easier for students, scientists and hobbyists to study fish.
