Jing is a great screenshot and screencast tool for your Windows or Apple computer. It allows you to take still pictures or video of any aspect of your computer display. The videos can be up to five minutes each and can be shared with one click via screencast.com, Twitter, or Facebook. You can also embed it directly into your own blog or website with an html embed code.

In the classroom, Jing is great for digital tutorials or recording feedback for students. It could also be used to record brief powerpoint presentations. My own students have used it talk me through problems they are having in their writing and with technology. There are many possible ways to use Jing in the classroom. How could Jing help you?
