Digital Media Literacy in the Cloud

Literacy with Video in the cloud

  • Screencastify - screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output, also known as a video screen capture, often containing audio narration. Wikipedia

  • Screencastify is a Chrome Extension that works within the Chrome Browser. Screencasting is a great way to begin video content creation without having to actually put a video camera in your hands. Here you are capturing content within your web browser of your actions that can be used directly in you class/course instruction. Screencasting is a now a common tool for teachers who practice flipped classroom strategies. 

    A Flipped Classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom. It moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. In a flipped classroom, students watch online lectures, collaborate in online discussions, or carry out research at home and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of a mentor. Wikipedia
