Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison | Comics presentation | 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.

When will people accept that graphic novels are not just for kids, not just for reluctant readers, not just stepping stones to "proper" literature, and are not "quick and easy?" Thank you Larry and Jeff.

I too share the author's ire that we are still having to defend the use of comics in the classroom. The theory is that things have changed - both the comics and the classrooms. In practice, however, we still have a lot to do in the classroom in terms of inviting the comics medium in.

‘Persepolis’: Choosing is not the same as censoring   - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources | Comics presentation | Scoop.it

There is a difference between removing a book from the library and not making it mandatory classroom reading, which is what happened here....There’s a whole universe of books that aren’t being taught to Chicago seventh-graders right now. It’s the school district’s job to make choices. What attracted attention here is that they changed their minds and, having changed their minds, they handled it badly.
