Global storytelling with a green screen and iPads These 6th graders found a way to do some digital global storytelling with a green screen and their iPads. They also managed to bust Tellagami’s animated personas out of the tablet, sending them around the world with a little green-screen magic. At Edmunds Middle School, two classes of 6th graders embarked on a new form of storytelling: Tellagami-smash! With a fleet of iPads at their disposal, along with the free green-screen app Veescope, students transported themselves or characters made with the Tellagami app to locations around the world. According to educators Laura Botte and Katie Wyndorf: The scholars have created a series of movies and books that demonstrate their learning. Check it out: App-smash Tellagami with a green screen Students had the choice of whether to create a Tellagami animated character, or whether to appear as themselves in their videos. Some students also made iBooks with the Book Creator iOS app which you can download to your iOS device here. Related May 20, 2015
