Track: Using a tablet PC and screencasts when teaching Mathematics - Dr Joel Feinstein - full video


Description: This is one of two recordings of a session given by Dr Joel Feinstein (Nottingham) in Loughborough on November 18 2009 as part of the seminar series "How We Teach" running at the Mathematics Education Centre, Loughborough University. For more information on this seminar series, contact the organiser, Professor Barbara Jaworski, B.Jaworski@lboro.ac.uk See also Dr Feinstein's blog http://explainingmaths.wordpress.com/ The session is about Dr Feinstein's current teaching methodology, and especially his use of a tablet PC and screencasting when teaching mathematics (relating to mathematical analysis and proof). The session includes a demonstration of the methodology, extracts from some screencasts and discussion of many of the issues which arise. This version of the recording is the full video-recording of the session made by the team in Loughborough. The other version of the recording was made using Camtasia on Dr Feinstein's tablet laptop, and is a screencast of everything displayed on the tablet's display, with synchronized audio. That version is rather different in nature, and excludes much of the discussion as comments from the audience were not picked up by Dr Feinstein's microphone.
