Flowgram - Angela Phillips

Flowgram: Welcome to the “Talking Web”
By Angela Phillips

Flowgram is a new way for you to communicate as it will assist you in creating presentations, give you a forum to talk about photographs you want to share, or help you to make richer blog posts!

You can take a collection of photographs, links, or videos and add audio of your voice to guide your viewer as if you were right there sitting next to them. You can even highlight (by selecting text) to emphasize certain features of what you are sharing on your flowgram.

Flowgrams can range from just one page (such as a page showing a picture of something) to a series of pages with multiple pictures, links, and/or videos. You can even use this with powerpoint presentations you have created.

Your viewers can control the pages, scroll them, click on your links, view your videos and more.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Add your content (if you are entering a website, just paste in the url).
Add Audio (just hit record) and Highlights (just select the text you want to highlight).
Send the link to someone or embed as a widget to post a flowgram into your blog.

The website guides you through everything you need to know and do in a step-by-step fashion. There are also instructional videos to assist you as well. It couldn’t be easier!

Check out the first flowgram I created for the purpose of gearing my 4th grade students to seven particular websites to use in researching a planet by visiting the blog I share with Rick Pinchot, Dorry Lopez, and Meli Launey.
