Week one – Student Blogging Challenge

Student Blogging Challenge 2015

Student Blogging Challenge 2015







Once again I have the privilege of participating as a mentor in the Student Blogging Challenge #sbc15.  The challenge has three parts: create an avatar,  update my all about me page and visit other blogs.

I’ve updated my student blog list and begun to visit them.   For this challenge I’ve a group of 15-year old students and I look forward to getting to know them. 

Sometime ago I was introduced to Tellagami.  “Animate your life. Tellagami is a mobile app that lets you create and share a quick animated video called a Gami.”  I’m excited to learn how I can use this tool in my job.

Samantha Morra at EdTechTeacher.org has some great ideas for using Tellagami in the classroom. http://www.freetech4teachers.com/2013/09/a-handful-of-ideas-for-using-tellagami.html

EdTechSandyK shared her thoughts on Tellagami.  http://edtechsandyk.blogspot.com/2013/10/create-short-animated-videos-for.html

Steve Woods has created a tutorial on how to create a gami. http://justonesandzeros.org/pedagogy/presentation/tellagami

Check out my gami and feel free to share ideas on how you might use these types of avatars.
