Gami's and Avatars

     This past week, I had the pleasant opportunity to spend almost 5 days with other educators from around my state discussing, exploring, sharing, and applying ideas, technology, and skills together.  I'm always excited to do this when I get a chance, because during the school year I don't get around to other teacher's rooms very often.  Today, I want to share with you 2 new apps that I love not only for myself, but for my students to share their learning and they can easily be aligned to the Common Core Standards.

     Tellagami is a quick, fun, and easy way to create a short video.  I found it very intuitive and simple to use and share my video. My favorite part is how it shared my video in my gallery on my iPad.

     When you download the app, the first screen you see will be this one which offers you a choice of creating or leaning about the app.  It was so simple, and offered so many choices that I had a blast creating a video for my students to welcome them back to school.

     Here was the end result!  I love this app because it offers my students the opportunity to share their learning in an alternative way and because it's free!

     The next app that I had fun with is called Buddy Poke! Buddy Poke allows you to create avatars with a lot of options including hair, clothes, backgrounds and videos.

     As you can see, you can also save it to your iPad camera roll for easy sharing, create a snapshot, or catalog it.

   You can also create a video like the one above,

or a QR code to share with others! I can totally see my students going crazy over this as they share not only their learning, but messages with their friends.  And once's free!

Both of these apps are great ways for students to show their learning!
