My trusty sidekick Rochelle and I have just completed presenting our breakout session called "Animate and Innovate Our Young Learners!" to an audience of about 20 at ULearn in Christchurch. It was fantastic, everyone was very enthusiastic about using 'I can animate' and 'Imovie' and could see the value of using this tool in their classrooms. We showed some examples of drawing animations (which was a digital recount of our class trip to MOTAT.) We also showed an example of using the image capture animation which is the series of photos (frames) that conveys movement through a series of tiny movements.
Everybody had a go at creating both types of animations, including exporting and importing into IMovie to finish off the editing process. We were quite pushed for time as we wanted to show and let everyone have a go at both types of animating.
It was fantastic and we got lots of great feedback!
