How I Use It
Doceri is a simple way to record a lesson for students to view later. Using an iPad, a teacher can use the built in whiteboard app or can control a desktop computer in the room to share anything on the computer from a presentation to a PDF to a video. The app allows you to record and annotate while teaching. You can also pause the recording and continue as needed. When finished, one click allows you to publish the video to YouTube for easy sharing.You can also share it a number of other ways including email, Facebook and more. You could also have students record something such as the steps in a math problem for later playback and evaluation. However, I find this app most useful for capturing lessons as given for later review and sharing.
Doceri is a must for teaching in the 21st century..As families look for more flexible school options, it is imperative that we as teachers can offer our lessons in a way that meet the needs of our learners and their families. I've seen Doceri used to capture exactly what happens in the classroom for students who are out sick, out for field trips or performances and for students who simply need to hear the material presented again. The lessons can also be edited later if necessary. Doceri makes it easy to move around the classroom freely while capturing notes, presentations, questions and answers. I once saw a teacher use it from the front of the room controlling her computer that was in the back of the room and the recording picked up her voice clearly, picked up sounds from the computer clearly, and picked up student questions from around the room. You simply load the app on your iPad and then load the desktop software piece on your computer. It takes just a few minutes to get set up and by simply pressing record you are on your way to providing your students and others with an easy way to learn content whenever and wherever they choose.
