  1. 1. TEACHING WITH TECHNOLOGY DAY 2014 Students as Teachers: Screencasting for Learning Foundational Mathematics Carol Carruthers Ewan Gibson February 24, 2014
  2. 2. PROGRAM  Providing a strong foundation in mathematics, science, technology and communication
  3. 3. PROBLEM/POTENTIAL SOLUTION Problem: Some students do not like to learn mathematics. Solution: Collaborative/interactive/learner-directed use of technology can re-engage students.
  4. 4. HOW TO WRITE ON A WINDOWS BASED TABLET  Windows Journal  Microsoft Word>Review>Start inking pdf  OneNote  Tablet PC Input Panel  Math Input Panel
  5. 5. HANDWRITTEN /SHARED/ SOCIAL POSTING:  - Draw something and share it  Scribblar – Collaborate instantly  DyKnow Vision – Interactive learning software
  6. 6. WHAT IS SCREENCASTING? Two reviews: 11/16/what-is-screencasting.html?page=1
  7. 7. WHY USE INSTRUCTOR SCREENCASTING? In classroom mode:  Student-directed learning In flipped/mixed mode:  Content is covered outside of class time  Connection to instructor The solution is to screencast!!
  8. 8. INSTRUCTOR DEVELOPED SCREENCASTS: PROS  Students choose when/where/how often learning occurs  Capitalize on ‘out of class time’ learning  Provides review for exams/tests/quizzes CONS  Time required to produce  Teaching style the same (videos are copies of lessons)  Passive (not active) learning BIG IDEA - STUDENT DEVELOPED MATHCASTS!!
  9. 9. CONNECTING COLLEGE TO CAREER (C^5): Project Goal: 3  To develop a categorized library of mathematics and application videos (AODA compliant) produced by and for students “This initiative has received funding through the Seneca Pillar Sponsorship program”
  10. 10. C^5 FEATURES:  All levels and disciplines of mathematics  Students, tutors, Learning Centre staff, alumni, faculty, industry professionals and administration  Application of fundamental mathematics concepts used in daily work situations  Initiate connections and stimulate discussion
  11. 11. SENECA MATHCAST SITE: Learning mathematics from your fellow students
  12. 12. CURRENT METHOD - SCREENCAST-O-MATIC Advantages:  Free, multi-platform  Extremely simple interface  Save as a variety of file types, edited in free software  Browser-based version requires no installation Disadvantages:  Adds a small watermark, yellow circle to cursor (removable with paid version $15)
