Friday I sat in on a workshop session on Screencasting in the Classroom. Screencasting is something I did when I was full time teaching, and I've even had students create a screencast to demonstrate their understanding of a concept. As I listened to educators from around the state share how they've used screencasting, I began thinking about my new position as an Instructional Coach, and wondering how I could use screencasting to support teaching and learning at my building. Being at a 1:1 building, I could use it for technology integration ideas, but I'm working on moving away from being viewed primarily as a tech idea person. Ultimately, I would like find ways to use screencasting to support instruction throughout the content areas, district initiatives, and topics teachers request. I'm still working on what this would look like, but believe having a bank of videos, both screencasted and prerecorded would support instruction at my building.
If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
