What is a Lessoncast?

“A lessoncast gives me just what I need to take an idea and make it work in the classroom.”

lessoncast is a spreadable example of the what, why, and how of effective teaching.  Lessoncasts feature one lesson idea or management strategy in 2 minutes 30 seconds or less. Lessoncasts include teacher-created downloadable resources to help implement the ideas. A lessoncast is NOT a lesson plan, but rather a quick how-to overview meant to inspire and support teachers looking for effective resources. View sample lessoncasts at our Gallery.

Teachers at schools with a license to LessonArchitect use screen capture technology, built into the site, to record and publish their lessoncast. Publishing a lessoncast does NOT require being on camera. A lessoncast shares the most important information required to effectively implement an instructional practice in the classroom.
