Guest Lecture

I’ve been asked to do a brief guest lecture for Dr. Marianne Martens and the Kent State University School of Library & Information Science. She is teaching a class on Youth Literature in the Digital Age and she asked me to speak about some of the work we’re doing here at, and about the A to Zoo for apps curation project we’re developing with Here is my first attempt at creating a non-boring blurb, and learning how to use a cool new app at the same time. Tellagami would be a really great app to use in a program for older kids, teens or adults! Get them to design a character and then give a brief book talk or review!

  1. I love this! I have seen other virtual presentations that use avatar speakers. Are you planning on using the app for the actual presentation or just the practice?

    • I’m not using the Avatar for the whole presentation, but I’m embedding it into my presentation. I’ll post when it’s all done. Do you have links to any good ones? Tellagami is limited in how many characters you can use in the free version, so that’s why mine is as short as it is 🙂
