Student Lessons with Tellagami

This Spring, I hosted a workshop on campus over the Tellagami app and how it can be used for both student and teacher created learning videos.  I was amazed by the products the students (preservice teachers) made.  They really used their creativity in how they could use this tool as a tool for them to create lessons for their students and also how students could create their own learning videos.

Workshop Activity:

  1. Attendees, all pre-service teachers, were introduced to the app Tellagami.  Tellagami has a free version and a paid EDU version.  The paid version includes more education related settings and longer recording times.  I am a fan of students creating their own backgrounds, so IMO, the free version works just fine.
  2. Attendees were given 5 minutes to brainstorm ideas for their project that related to their area of study.  They could refer to the above Google Draw Tellagami lesson plan activities for ideas.
  3. Attendees had to create a minimum one minute video using Tellagami.  Since the free version of Tellagami only allows for thirty seconds of recording, the students used iMovie to stitch the two videos together (this again is another justification for not purchasing the paid version 😉).
  4. Attendees saved their projects to the camera roll, and uploaded their finished products to our JRCoE Seesaw Journal.

Student Examples 🙂

These pre-service teachers used Tellagami to create videos for their future students.  I love this and encourage the idea because this allows teachers more time for hands on learning.  It also allows learners to listen and replay the lesson as many times as they need to understand the concepts.

This attendee used Tellagami as a lesson to practice learning a foreign language! 💜

This attendee created a video of an biography of a historical figure.  This would be a great learning video for students or for teachers to create to introduce a lesson.
