Back in October, I posted a video from the ongoing “Calculus in Plain English” series that my students have created about Limits. It was great and recieved a lot of positive feedback from students and colleagues. So, when I was asked by my principal to submit a technology project for our district’s digital media fair, it was a “no-brainer”…we had to enter “Limits in Plain English! My students were wa-a-a-a-y more tech savvy in December than they were when they orginally made the video, so we took a few days to update the original video with screencasts and sound effects. We also had to create a 2-minute intro/trailer for the project, which you see above. I am very happy with the result and think my students should be very proud! They used Google Docs to collaborate on the script. Here is a quick screencast I made to show how my students use Google docs for projects like this:
Screencast-o-matic.com is a website where you can create FREE, no-download required screencasts through any Java-enabled browser. It took all of five minutes for my students to figure out how use this awesome tool to update the instructional segments of their video.
