Postscript items are designed as rich grab-and-go resources that any teacher can quickly incorporate into his or her classroom repertoire with little effort and maximum impact. Screencasts allow students to share their thinking and strategies and help teachers notice how a child solved a problem, beyond just examining the student's finished work. The authors share novel ways to use screencasting in mathematics classrooms.
