How I Use It
After only a cursory overview, 3rd grade students used this app to share book reviews. Instead of using the generic backgrounds provided, students used a photo of the book cover. They took the completed Tellagami and inserted it in to Aurasma to create an Aura that would be linked to the book cover. It was great for our EL learners because they could take their time practicing their speech numerous times, and didn't have the fear of sharing in front of their classmates.
My Take
Some people complain about the video capability being limited to only 30 seconds. However, we find it easy to stitch different videos together using iMovie. Furthermore, using iMovie allows us to change backgrounds and characters to make a more dynamic presentation.
