3 Easy Ways to Record Educational Screencasts Using Your iPad 

3 Easy Ways to Record Educational Screencasts Using Your iPad  | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it
In today’s post, I am sharing with you some interesting tips I learned from Jonathan Wylie  to help you record your iPad screen and create instructional screencasts and tutorials.

To be able to navigate your iPad and record this navigation, you will need to mirror your iPad screen to a bigger screen that is your computer. Once you can access your iPad screen  from your computer, you can then use a screencasting tool to record your iPad screen. Here is how you can do it all:
