Who: Grade 5 & 6
What: Experimental Play - Learning the App
One of our Grade 5 & 6 Classes is learning to animate using a couple of different kinds of applications. The first App we learned to use is DoInk Animation and Drawing. The class were assigned an iPad each and experimented by playing with it for a a total of three sessions (approx. 2hrs in total). We're really amazed how well our students picked this up and what they achieved in such a short time.
Here are some examples of what they produced:
Where Next?The next project is to learn how to animate using Keynote. We will play with that for a few days and see what we can make with a different kind of affect.
The last animation App we will experiment with is Stop Motion Studio Pro HD for iPad. The students will manipulate 'real' objects and animate them into short videos.
After the experimental phase we will have a project to animate a property/principle of air to show an understand 'what makes air work'.
I can't wait to share the final results.
