Tuesday Teacher Tips: Screenr

It's Back!  Tuesday Teacher Technology Tips!

(don't roll your eyes at me... I saw that!)

Today's Website for your consideration is:  Screenr

What Screenr is, is basically a Screen Recording Application....similar to things like Camtasia and Adobe's Captivate program.

So why use Screenr?  Well...it's a web based program and application.... you don't need to install ANYTHING on your computer.

For Example, here is a short video on "How To Flip Images within Powerpoint"

So, What are some possible uses for screenr in the classroom?

  1. Demonstration of "How To" do something on your computer.
  2. Long Term instructions of "How To" do things that are often repeated
    (I should do one of these for changing your state e-mail password)
  3. Going over expectations for an assignment.... Show the students exactly what you want the final product to look like, how they should turn it in, etc, etc.  Send the link of the screenr video to them, and they always have them.
  4. Have the Students Use Screenr! - have them make a short video showing how they do something, or showing how they got their answer, or explaining their sources, or...???
Screenr is a very simple and easy program/application to use... take some time and play around with it.

Make your assignments and instructions lively by including videos!

Note:  Screenr and Other Websites of Note are located on my Delicious Bookmark Page.

-If you find a neat site that you would like others to know about... send me the link, and I will add it to the Delicious page.

And Just for the heck of it...how about a little Rock and Roll on this Tuesday Morning.

The Gaslight Anthem is one of the greatest bands in the world, that most people don't know about.

Enjoy "The '59 Sound"
