First, I had my students watch a few examples of a real weather forecast. I wanted them to see what I expected their final product to look like. Then we went over our rubric. My students were expected to include temperature, precipitation, wind conditions, and what they could wear for that type of weather in their weather report!
Next, we started creating! While making their Gamis, my students found a weather forecast background by searching safari. Once they found the forecast they wanted to use, they studied the picture to decide what they would say about the weather. As they looked at the forecast they chose, I reminded them of the different information I wanted them to include in their report. They used their rubric to draw and write down facts about their forecast. Writing their facts down helped them when they were ready to record their forecast.
After they chose their background, they were able to customize their avatar. Most of them made their avatar resemble themselves. This is the part that takes the longest because they enjoy changing every aspect of their avatar! :)
After they were completely finished, they saved their Tellagmi to their camera roll on the iPad and then air dropped their final product to me! My students have become quite the digital learners!
Tellagmi can be used for many projects including reciting famous speeches, reciting a poem, telling a story through a character, explain facts about a famous person, and many more! Another great aspect about Tellagmi is you can save it to the camera roll on your device and “app smash” it with other apps like Explain Everything or iMovie!
Using creation apps like Tellagami can have a profound impact on student learning, engagement, and participation!
