Screenr Lesson Due 12/9

This week I want you to use Screenr and teach people something that you can do on the computer.

It might be something like writing a blog post, using one of the web tools we've tried out, adding a video to your blog, creating a photo collage, using photoshop etc.  If you have an idea that you are unsure about, leave a comment about it and I will get back to you.

Make your screenr video and post it up on your blog - you can grab an embed code, just change the width to suit your blog (450 - 500 px will be good on most your blogs).  You need to talk and explain what you are doing.  You need to be professional - it should be something appropriate to show other teachers and students.

Usually in Year 11 you have to give a speech teaching the class something so think of it as practise for that!

Here's an example Screenr video I made to teach other staff about Moodle:

If you are having trouble, try using Jing or Screencast:

I personally haven't used them, but they appear to be similar.

Thanks for your poems.  If you haven't got one up yet, please get onto that asap.  I will be entering them tomorrow (Thursday).
If you wrote about a current AC teacher the other week, I flicked them the link to your blog.  I hope you don't mind; they were very appreciative :) 


  1. miss, does it have to be on the computer?
    can do something about the ipod?

    1. Sure, if you are able to record it and share it then go for it.

  2. Miss, screenr isn't working on my p.c and laptop. I've tried both, the screen recorder doesn't launch.

  3. Miss, My screenr isn't working either.. It keeps saying no java detected when I've downloaded it 3 or 4 times...

  4. Miss Kelly what is your email? I need it for the reflection thing for term 3.

  5. If you are having trouble, try using Jing or Screencast

    I personally haven't used them, but they appear to be similar.

  6. Hi Miss. Kelly Screencast screenr and jing do not work on any of my computers at home. This programme is blocked at school.

  7. I'm so sorry you guys have found this so problematic!
    I didn't realise it would be because I could use it at school and usually things like this don't work at school :P
    Like, I could get this to work, but not prezi or wordle.

  8. Thanks to those of you that have left comments saying it has been an issue. Good on you for trying it out in advance.

  9. Hi miss, tryed Jing yesterday, and it kept on saying that it was unable to install. Don't know why. The Screenr website kept on refreshing and it would come up with a message saying that it could not return me to the page???.. And with Screencast it says I don't have enough disk space to register???.. They don't work at school cause they are blocked..
