How can the students use Jing to further their learning experience?
Students could use this tool to “teach” the class about a given topic. They could create a PowerPoint or a web in Inspiration. By recording their project and using the voice-over in Jing, the student could present their project to the class. The screencasts could be posted on the classroom blog or on Blackboard. All students can access the information at a time that is convenient for them. Due to the time restriction of 5 minutes, the student make decisions about what they are going to say and how they are going to present the information before they start recording. It forces the student to focus on the key points. By posting this on a blog or on Blackboard, other students will be able to comment on the presentation. The creator would be responsible for responding to his/her classmates.
