How the Brain Works

'Five Minute Film Festival'  from the Edutopia blog is a cool posting that shares videos of how the brain works/how students learn - perhaps more for teachers or parents or teenagers than for my Year Sixes though, but very interesting!

Using the Tellagami app in class

Tellagami allows the pupils to create an avatar known as a Gami.  They can choose a background or take a photo of their own background and then record a 30 second message that the Gami will be animated to 'present' when played back.
