iPad apps such as DoodleCast and Explain Everything have become invaluable tools for schools with mobile devices. Being able to explain an image while drawing on it makes visible thinking as easy as 1,2,3.

But what if your students have MacBooks and not tablets?

Well there is an answer – and although not as effective as the tablet apps – it many situations it may be all you need. This workaround was suggested by @DoakShannon – a master innovation coach currently working in southern China.

The solution involves “Mac smashing” 2 free pieces of Mac software; Omnidazzle and Quicktime 

Once you have those installed, you are ready to screen cast. This short tutorial will show you how it’s done. If you know of any other clever ways to make screen castings that can be drawn on, we would love to hear from you!
