What is screencasting you ask? Screencasting is the process of using an app or website to create short video/audio clips of what you are doing on your computer. Teachers can use screencasts to teach a concept or skill. Screencasts clips are often used in blended learning and the flipped classroom. Students can use screencasting to teach a concept or show how they are thinking. Screencasting can be very powerful.
