Big Ideas About TEaCHING & Learning: ScreenChomp (iPad Screen Video Recorder)

ScreenChomp is a FREE experimental iPad app that helps you EASILY create short screen videos that can help teach your students!

Think of this as a recordable (both video and audio) whiteboard - a blank slate you can use to write, capture and share big ideas!

Anyone can benefit from such a tool, but this was developed primarily for teachers and students. Imagine being able to ...

  1. Provide visual tutorial and homework assistance with difficult concepts when students email their questions.
  2. Allow students who miss class to keep pace.
  3. Allow students to tutor each other!
I was introduced to ScreenChomp by Keisha Brown, a second-year math instructor at Georgia Perimeter College (and a veteran high school math teacher) ...

"I love ScreenChomp because it gives me the ability to reply to my students' emailed questions easily outside of class.  It is very difficult to type responses to these questions, but with ScreenChomp I am able to show graphs, use colors, and easily describe where their likely mistakes are. 

I can catalog these videos for future use, which provides a resource for students who either need to reinforce concepts, or who might have missed class. 

My goal with these screen videos is to demonstrate a particular skill or concept - not to reteach an entire lesson. Videos cannot replace the classroom experience, but they can certainly extend it!"
