Narrated Slideshow – Screencast: show what you know with media (Mapping Media to the Curriculum Book 6)

Wesley Albert Fryer


A screencast is a digital recording of a computer screen with audio narration. Screencasts can include telestrator (‘John Madden pen’) annotations. Narrated slideshows include audio recordings synchronized to images without hand-drawn annotations. Screencasting and narrated slideshows can be used effectively in all content areas by students of all ages. Primary grade students may require additional assistance, but are also capable of creating these projects! The ability to create and share narrated slideshows and/or screencasts is a new, basic requirement for digital literacy today. This chapter highlights examples of educational narrated slideshows and screencasts, available websites and apps for creating them, and workflows students and teachers can effectively use in the classroom.

This is an eBook single, initially published in 2013 as a chapter of "Mapping Media to the Common Core: Vol 1."
