Kids Teaching Kids: Empowering Students Through Screencasting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop will demonstrate the powerful effects of integrating student-created math video lessons, also called screencasts or mathcasts. The math videos are used as tutoring tools, a form of authentic assessment and for creating an enhanced “kids teaching kids” classroom culture.  Perhaps best of all, the students enjoy creating these screencasts.


The video tutorials are used in classroom instruction and shared with a global audience via our iTunes podcast, YouTube channel, as well as our own Mathtrain.TV Web site. You will view student-created screencasts and discover how easy it is to create them for nearly any subject, as well as share them on-line, using the screen recording software Camtasia Studio and free Jing. Two actual students will be co-presenting and demonstrating how we create our screencasts.
