Middle school students use the Padcaster to create and edit videos for classroom assignments. Teachers also are using it to create video lessons that students can watch so the teacher can circulate among the students, answering questions, clarifying, etc as the students are practicing the directions that have been recorded.
The success of this device at the Middle School encouraged Ripley and High School to purchase one as well. The Padcaster allows us to easily create videos with lighting and microphones. It is on a tripod with wheels so it is portable and rugged. It is a mobile creation studio for digital learners.
The Padcaster purchase was made possible through a grant from the Litchfield Public School Foundaiton. Thank you for making this possible!
