Livescribe-Enabled Talking Test with Pencast Solutions09/23/09
There are two parts to a Livescribe enabled talking test. Part 1: Share a test which reads questions aloud to students (more slowly and privately if desired). Part 2: Create solutions which explain with voice and writing through a pencast available on the web. This type of assessment will allow your students to have access to your feedback after hours and assess their own progress. The above video narrates this process.
Many thanks to The Math Maker for creating the original talking test screencast and to Jim Dornberg (Mathcasts – handouts and links page on his wiki) and James Socol who collaborated to create the Pencast Embed tool which allows creation of pencast embed code of 3 sizes (I used the Large size above here). See http://jamessocol.com/pencast/ Small pencasts can also be easily embedded using the embed code now available when viewing pencasts on the Livescribe Community.
