If I could only have one app on my iPad it would be this one. It has such potential for writing and sharing.
I showed the boys the very basics and let them explore adding images, video, photos, writing freehand, typing and adding audio to add as much as they could on one cover page.
There was much hilarity as the boys recorded and inserted video selfies. It was interesting to note that some boys were happily clicking everywhere to see what would happen and others were quite hesitant, concerned about making a mistake.
I was also very proud of one of the boys who took it upon himself to show his classmates how to use Tellagami. This is what I wanted to see happen- the boys taking on positive 'schooly' leadership roles.
To share the app I used Reflector.app to mirror my iPad onto my laptop whcih was then projected onto the home class display screen.
