•July 29, 2011 • Leave a Comment

The second week of Teen Productions focused on screencasting. Screencasting is a way to capture what is happening on the computer screen in front of you, and is often used to demonstrate a “how to.” How to copy and paste in Microsoft Word, how to properly login to a Tumblr blogging account, how to get to the next level of Angry Birds. Below is the screencast of a student’s Prezi presentation. This particular Prezi was made last week in Teen Productions week 1.
