Mathtrain.TV: Ep.86, Input Devices via The Forge

Friday, December 10th, 2010

This special episode of Mathtrain.TV is a partial rebroadcast of a TechSmith show called, The Forge.

In this rebroadcast, Matt Pierce is joined by Dave McCollom (both of TechSmith fame) and they discuss different ways to screencast. Specifically, they focus on various input devices one can use to create screencasts.

We are extra excited, because they demonstrated one of our very own Mathtrain videos which was created by “Bob”!

Thanks to Matt, Dave and TechSmith. And thank you for permission to rebroadcast this show. I’m sure many of our viewers will find it interesting and helpful!

We edited the original segment. But go watch their intro and full show…
The original “The Forge” Episode 2, part 1 can be found here.

ISTE 2010: Here We Come!

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Just a few days away from the ISTE 2010 Conference in Denver, CO.  Come see student “Bob” and me present in the TechSmith booth as well as a formal session on Wednesday!

Please come visit us in the TechSmith booth! We don’t work for TechSmith, but they were once again so kind in sponsoring our trip and presentation.  Sadly, our school district and school has never assisted us when we go present our student work.  But thankfully, TechSmith understands.  They paid for us to fly out and stay in Denver to participate in the conference.

Here’s the scoop:

ISTE 2010 Conference, Denver, CO

Wednesday, 06/30/10
1:30PM – 2:30PM
Room 504 (CCC)

Formal Session/Lecture
Sponsored by TechSmith

This session focuses on the positive effects of adopting a collaborative “kids teaching kids” model via student-created screencasts. This collaborative model helped spark student interest and enthusiasm inside and outside of the classroom. Our student-created screencast lessons (also known as mathcasts) have reached a global audience thanks to Alan November, our free Mathtrain.TV web site and our iTunes Podcast.

Actual student-created screencasts will be shown. Attendees will also learn how to create their own screencasts and watch a live student demonstration of the process.
Student, “Bob”, will be co-presenting.
