Janika Puolitaival's curator insight, Today, 9:02 AM

Children presenting favourite books for other children always always works better than librarians sharing book tips. This is something that should be done even more. Something to develop with local schools?

Sharrock's curator insight, Today, 11:59 AM

This is a cool idea.

Global storytelling with a green screen and iPads - Innovation: Education

Global storytelling with a green screen and iPads - Innovation: Education | Ed Tech Integration | Scoop.it

"These 6th graders found a way to do some digital global storytelling with a green screen and their iPads.

 

They also managed to bust Tellagami’s animated personas out of the tablet, sending them around the world with a little green-screen magic.

 

At Edmunds Middle School, two classes of 6th graders embarked on a new form of storytelling: Tellagami-smash! With a fleet of iPads at their disposal, along with the free green-screen app Veescope, students transported themselves or characters made with the Tellagami app to locations around the world."
