Among the many burgeoning “support” applications that can enhance the technology training of preservice teachers there is new group of simple and inexpensive “advanced screen capture” programs that should not be overlooked. Also referred to as video screen capture or moving screen capture they perform a rather simple yet powerful service. Like “older” screen capture applications, video screen capture can record whatever is displayed on a computer monitor but instead of a single “screen dump” video screen capture allows the user to record the monitor's image over time and create, as the name implies, a movie of what is happening on the screen. This interactive session will provide attendees a chance to see video screen capture in operation and get hands-on experience with SnapzPro a leading capture program for the Mac platform. Attendeess will also be able to see examples of how Southern Utah University is using video screen capture techniques to enhance their educational technology course. At present this technology is helping in three important areas: 1) it supports faculty and lab assistants in teaching the basic software applications required for computer literacy, 2) it enables teacher candidates to create powerful artifacts for their electronic portfolios, and 3) it introduces a new tool that can be used in the classroom to help and inspire K-12 students.
