This project was the most satisfying for me. Part of the reason was the ease with which it came together; everything worked exactly like it said it would, and the utility of the screencasting software is considerable. I like how the professor, Mark Szymanski, has used the screencasting software as a tutorial for our projects, and I can see myself using it in the same way in my classroom.
The first iste article I read covers a list of the best screencasting programs available for free on the web.
I couldn’t find anything else on screencasting on iste, so I went for a random journal article. The article was titled “Join the Flock” and I had no idea what it was about; the article as it turns out is about how to use Twitter to build a professional learning network. The article assumes the reader has no experience with Twitter and goes about introducing the nomenclature and how to open up your own account. I found it interesting but remain unconvinced of how Twitter can be more useful than other online resources that offer similar, and more in-depth, online communication.
Here are three grammar websites that offer games, quizzes and other grammar-related learning opportunities.
