I’m pretty pleased with myself. I used QT to make a screencast to explain to students and teachers how to add a recording to a Google website page.
That’s not the important part, really, because I don’t want the technology tail to be wagging the dog this year in my classroom.
What is cool is that QT is so easy to use now that I plan to record some stories on line for students. OOH. I could do a MovieTalk! Maybe I can record audio for them (a la Jim Tripp’s Garage Band plans) and let them play that over pictures that they find to represent the audio.
Update: I just tried the MovieTalk idea…and oh my…it WORKED! I played a short film, having silenced the sound, screencast over it, and (as my dearly departed father-in-law would say, “Bob’s your uncle!”) it took me only two minutes to do the entire thing. I will upload tomorrow from school, where it won’t take me three hours to put up three minutes. Watch this space!
