First, we will discuss the differences between screen-capturing, screen casting, and screen sharing.
We will then look at 3 programs that are all free (budget-friendly) that teachers can use in their classrooms. I will discuss how to obtain each free program and show their websites. The programs are as follows:
screen-capturing: Skitch screen casting: Screenr screen sharing:
I will demonstrate how to use Skitch and Screenr. After each demonstration, the participants will be able to recreate my demo on their own computers using the appropriate program. Each demo will be short for easy recreation. I will supply individual help when needed. Lastly, I will show how to use Join.Me to share the participant's screen. I will open up the floor for discussion and further questions at the end of the workshop.
