Can’t Communicate Your Assessments Clearly Online? – Use Camtasia Screen Casts!

Hey there future thinking educators,

I’ve been playing around with screen capturing software and found that by simply recording a screen cast of the Assessment PDF with me talking, can give students a baisc walk through of the assessment in the same way that you would walk through assessments with your face to face class.

I’m using Camtasia to record my screen casts but obviously you can use any screen capturing software.

Have a look at the example above of one of my assessments on Moodle. (HSCOnline)

Keep pushing the boundaries!

Introduce Programming – Play a Game!!

Hey all you tech savvy teachers out there,

I found this cool flash game (Light Bot – http://armorgames.com/play/2205/light-bot) which is excellent for introducing  the concept of programming as well as the use of functions and modules!

The students LOVE it and it’s really teaching them programming!

I’ve embedded that flash into my course page as seen above..

Check it out!
