Little or No Prep Tools & Resources

Educreations. Best screencasting tool I use because it’s so easy. Change background, write while you talk, capture images and voice. Students can use to explain their process in math, or expand upon a picture story they created. Simply take a picture of the child’s work or let them work it on the iPad or laptop, then record the student’s voice explaining process. Engage students with video to capture ideas, share instantly, replay anytime. Publish current Educreations video before beginning a new one (only one new project may be worked on at a time).

Screencast-O-Matic is a web-based tool that let’s you record on-screen activity for short tutorials, visual presentations, and communicate while you demonstrate! Free 15 minute recordings of screen only or videocamera of speaker in corner with screen. Publish to YouTube or save as a video file. Or try a similar tool Screencastify as a Chrome Add-On with 10 minute recordings.

iMovie Trailer Planning Sheets. Take pictures or video to fill in each box. Add text. Produce! Share! Also take videos in iMovie and edit.
