Screencasting for Differentiation

In a previous post we looked at students using a screen capture app on their ipads to demonstrate their thinking when they solve math problems. Ms. Weaver uses screencasting to differentiate her instruction and to provide online tutorials that students can access from Haiku. By using a screen movement, multi-colored pens, shapes and audio descriptions, students experience a full sensory experience when interacting with the screencasts. This activates many areas of the brain while giving them the opportunity to watch the video on their own time and as many times as they need to. Here is a link to a math tutorial screencast by Ms. Weaver.
