Don’t Forget About Print Screen!

In the push to encourage the integration of technology into lessons, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of apps, websites and files.  Sometimes we forget that colleagues often just need help on a basic skill, which can open doors to how a teacher manages their lessons.  “Print Screen” is definitely on my top 10 list of basic tools teachers should know how to use.  Here is a video which walks you through:

  1. Taking a screen capture
  2. Pasting into Paint
  3. Selecting what you need, and pasting into SMART Notebook

Microsoft provides this information about the Print Screen feature.  Also, this video on Schooltube provides information on printing and exporting Notebook files.  The Next Level PD wesbsite provides lots of quick tips and tricks for utilizing SMART Boards.

Finally, my tutorial was created using the free Screencast-O-Matic site.  A quick e-mail sign-up, and you are ready to start recording!
