Thank you for putting this together! I am a newbie to this! I am super nervous to have to film myself. I am teaching a new grade level this year and feel like a brand new teacher all over again. I am fine when it is just me and my kids in the classroom, but when I think of how parents may view this, it makes me SOOOOOO nervous. I am afraid of looking and sounding like a complete idiot. How do you stay so calm?
I totally get it! Do what you can to get out of your head. I guarantee you that your parents will be really impressed with you! Just imagine you are in front of your students and go from there!
Good luck, you’ve got this!
Help! Your video was SO helpful. I did my first 2 videos and sent them. Then a parent emailed me that my book I read aloud was BACKWARD. How can I flip by video so I don’t show things backwards?
Try this to flip it!
I remember you saying that! Thank you for the reply. I need to make myself a cheat sheet! Do parents have to have a screencast log in? One of my parents says she can’t view it.
Also, have you ever used an ipad as a document camera but to display on your computer. I would like to screencast with the document camera (ipad).

Hi, I am trying to create read-alouds for my daughter and trying to figure out how to do so. I have watched your videos and have the basics down of how to change screen size, launch recorder, and record, etc. What I’m not understanding is where to pull the information from…for example, I have taken a picture of each page of my read aloud book. Do I separately open up each page and then read it? Won’t the mouse show in the video? I’m computer savvy so it won’t take long if you can help me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Or I will gladly give you my phone number! 🤦🏻♀️
