    Creative animation 

    Over the past few weeks I have been teaching my class film making techniques and encouraging them to go off and create a short film of their own. One group decided to create an animated short based on a very simple idea of two characters playing games. I helped the group develop the idea along with a storyboard and editing but they did everything else – filming frame by frame using ‘I Can Animate from Kudlian Soft’, Windows Movie Maker and some natural sunlight (we didn’t have any other lighting unfortunately). The 2 minute short is a wonderful demonstration of student creativity.

    Give them the tools, teach them how to use them and let them create.

    Learning away from the classroom 

    A child in my class was off school today but kept ‘in contact’ with us using Edmodo. She explained to use she wouldn’t be in but would create an animoto as a surprise for someone in our class. We were all intrigued so we checked back later and before home time we discovered her link to the following video.

    [clearspring_widget title=”Animoto.com” wid=”46928cc51133af17″ pid=”4a366d45fcf81cd5″ width=”432″ height=”240″ domain=”widgets.clearspring.com”]

    The video is for a girl who will be, like myself, leaving the class and the island at the end of June to start a life elsewhere. It’s a beautiful peice of work and brought home to me that my teaching of these tools is being used effectively for continued learning by my class outside of school.

    Why should I use Myst in my classroom? 

    This time I’ll let my class tell you why.
