ENTRY #6 – Tellegami

tellagamiTellagami is our sixth entry in DEN March Madness. DEN STARs Barbara De Santis and Rita Mortenson nominated this fun app, available for both iOS and Android. Rita thinks this is a really cool mobile app that you can use to animate a little story.  It can be used for all sorts of cool purposes with Discovery Education content.  In addition, students could explain and animate a lot of science concepts, math equations and more.  This allows for a great deal of creativity. Barbara has students use a photo from Discovery Education and make it the background for your tellagami.  Need a place to house your Tellagami?  Import it into DE BoardBuilder.  Barbara has had students make one (or many) Tellagamis to put in their boards. Here’s an example.
