Teachers looking to flip their classrooms can explore a variety of tools. Screencasting is the process of recording what you are doing on your tablet or computer. It’s like taking a screenshot but includes audio and video recording too. In the flipped classroom screencasts can be used to create the video clips you ask students to watch before class to prepare for a lesson. I put together a list of Screencasting Resources for teachers I think you will also enjoy!
Screencasting Resources for Teachers
There are a handful of great screencasting resources that can help you create videos for your flipped classroom. Each one has unique features. I encourage you to try a few before deciding on the one you’ll stick with this school year.
Explain Everything This teacher favorite is a powerful screencasting app that lets users record their voice as they write on the screen. Explain Everything includes many features that allow teachers to easily add text and animation to their screen. You can share the final videos in a few different ways. This can include a direct upload to a teacher YouTube channel.
ShowMe With this iPad app teachers can demonstrate math problems or text annotation by writing on their screen and recording their voice. These video creations are saved to a link and can be viewed on any web browser.
Screencast-O-Matic Screencast-O-Matic is a great choice for teachers creating flipped videos on a laptop or desktop computer. This software will download to your device. It also allows you to capture and record whatever is happening on your computer screen. Teachers turning PowerPoint presentations into flipped videos will love how easy it is to use.
