Demonstration I made using Screen Jelly as an instructional and staff development web tool
When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinically tested best practices, and demonstrate how these best practices can be applied in the real (i.e. physical) and virtual (i.e. online) classroom for both teaching and teacher training. The combination of face to face instruction in a physical setting and online learning is called blended learning. In this section of the blog we will describe how the internet can serve as a supplemental resource for instruction and the mentoring of pre-service and in-service Jewish educators. In this post we will continue our discussion on how students in a Judaic Studies blended learning classroom can use Screen Jelly to enhance learning.
Assumption: The teacher or mentor teacher has a interactive white board (i.e. SMART Board, Promethean, etc.), a Tablet PC (also called a Slate or Blade), a computer presenter or computer with internet access attached to an LCD projector in the classroom. It would be ideal if students or mentees had access to their own laptop computers or Ipads as well.
Note: Although Screen Jelly can be applied in the Judaic Studies blended learning classroom, it can be also be used for training pre-service and in-service Jewish educators for professional or staff development. It is our hope that Jewish educators around the globe will form an online community of practice, a CoP, a group of people who share an interest, a craft, and/or a profession, to enhance the delivery of instruction and training of Jewish educators. For example, here is a CoP you might want to join.
What is Screen Jelly?
Screen Jelly is a screen recording or screen casting web-based tool that can be used to promote learning in a Judaic Studies blended learning classroom and for the mentoring or training of pre-service and in-service Judaic educators.
Where is Screen Jelly located on the web?
My demonstration of Screen Jelly
Below you will find a Screen Jelly screencast I made demonstrating how to use Quick Time Player for screen, audio and web camera recording:
This is the url for the Screen Jelly demonstration I had created, http://screenjel.ly/Zp36WabiwWE . It appears that Screen Jelly is not functioning at the present time. This happens sometimes with websites.
On the next post we will share a list of additional web tools that can be used for screen recording or screencasting.
