A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen combined with audio narration. Free and simple-to-use authorship tools now make it possible for everyone to use images, language and sound for self-expression and communication. Learn to make a screencast by using your laptop to access, analyze, create and reflect on the media we consume and create. Making screencasts can strengthen students' ability to comprehend and analyze print, visual, sound and digital media.
