Welcome to episode eight of the Technology Shopping Cart podcast where educational innovation thrives on the food of creative ideas! This episode was recorded on August 8, 2008, and shared live over the web using Ustream.tv and Skype. Karen Montgomery and Wesley Fryer discuss reasons to use as well as create screencasts, places to find educationally related screencasts, and tools to use on both Windows and Macintosh platforms for screencapture and screen recording. Near the end of the webcast we were joined by Tony Vincent, an amazing educator from Omaha, Nebraska, and author of learninginhand.com. Tony shared some of his favorite screencast tools and also joined us for our closing “geek of the week” exchange. Refer to our podcast shownotes for links to the resources and websites we discuss in this show, including the Ustream chat transcript of our live webshow and Ustream archive.
