Technology has opened up avenues for deaf and hard of hearing students that were previously inaccessible. No longer dependent on such equipment as chalkboards and filmstrip projectors, tools such as Smart Boards, computers, and even iPads have become part of the standard educational experience for many children. For teachers at the Washington School for the Deaf (WSD), the technology that recently has proven to be most valuable is the screen-recording tool. Screen recording has become so integrated into their work that they cannot imagine living without it. The screen-recording tool, which makes a digital video of what is displayed on the computer screen, has many applications. Not only can it be used for instruction and student engagement; it can also be used for assessment, documenting growth, classroom management, and professional development. Further, it enables teachers to support the development of American Sign Language (ASL) and English in an innovative and time-efficient way. Screen recording also allows teachers to give feedback to students in ASL. In this article, the author describes the benefits of the screen-recording tool and its success in the classroom.
