What is ScreenFlow
ScreenFlow is a screen casting software for Mac users, made by Telestream, in 2008.
It has six different updates of the software since it came out eight years ago, with version 6.1 as the newest version. The software program won an Eddy Winner the year it came out, and multiple awarders the years after.
What is in the tutorial
In the tutorial I showed how to scale, split, add transitions, add annotations, video actions, and call outs. I zoomed in the some of the important text that I was showing, I pointed out the website. It was important to explain what I was was doing and telling what I was doing. I think it was also important to know how to use the tools the right way, instead of just clicking on random tools and trying to fingure it out.
How will ScreenFlow be useful in the future
ScreenFlow would be helpful in the future because, all this technology that is coming out now is going to be something in the future. Knowing how to do this stuff now with technology will benefit for jobs with technology involving in them in the future. With ScreenFlow you can demonstrate something once on the computer save it, and not have to demonstrate again on the same lesson.

My softball coach, Jennifer Moore, is my hero, because she pushes me to do better, and she encourages me to keep on going to get better. If I'm doing something wrong she will stop and ask me what I'm doing wrong to make sure I know too. She shows me new things, when she thinks I'm ready to learn them, not when I want to. She likes to a little fun like I do, but is serious when she has to be. She expects a lot from and I like that challenge.
Her "can do attitude" has inspired me to belike her, to try just as hard as her, and to be successful like her. She doesn't give up on people, if we mess up on a drill she'll ask us what we did wrong, then tell us what was wrong. She doesn't get impatient with us, when we are constantly messing up, she will just explain how to do it.
When she was in high school she lettered in two sports, softball and basketball. She was named Ashland Times-Gazette Player of the Year. In her freshmen year of college she was second on her team for RBI, third for doubles and slugging percentages, played 48 game, started 45 of those games. In her sophomore year of college she was first in home runs, third in RBI, and fourth in doubles. She respects everyone, no matter what, to me she is a good influence to learn from, and I couldn't ask for a better coach.
My summer was filled with softball games and practices. My local softball team placed 3rd in the league after Savannah in 1st and Ruggles Troy in 2nd. I came in first of most home runs in the league, with nine home runs, and my team had 16 home runs all together. I went to play up for the Polk 15u team and I got to play a game for Savannah's baseball team, when I played up for Polk and Savannah I got to play my main spot and some other spots I haven't played in awhile.
I am just another kid, but I will work hard and try to do my best. My short term goal is to at least get a B or higher in every class I take through out middle school. I will try to turn in all my homework in time, study for test, pay attention in class, and do everything I can to get the grades I want to be successful.
For my long term goal I want to graduate high school with a 3.5 or higher. As I said before I will work hard for it. I don't know yet what I want my career to be, but I have an idea of a career I might want which is aeronautics. I just like space, I'm just interested in the mysteries of space and what could be in space.
