Jing (Educreation)

I actually really liked using jing.  Way easier than I thought.  I think this would be great to use when I’m sick and need to give students or the sub directions.  I liked that it was limited to 5 minutes.  I also liked how you could add just a photo/screen shot or a video.

Other ways to use jing: Have students record themselves teaching something or presenting on a topic. Students could record themselves solving problems or giving a tutorial.
A picture can be captured and edited via jing. So many great ideas and ways to use jing!

Integrating Technology

 

I’ve never done anything like this before and it scared me to death!  I had a really hard time with this assignment!  However, it was good for me and challenged me.  After I completed it I thought that it would be nice to have actual Science lectures saved using this site.  If I was sick, I could easily teach a lesson using Screencastomatic.  In summary, I think I will use this tool in the future and I’m glad I got to practice in this class.
