About This Workshop

If you’re looking for creative ways to help students work together while engaging in the content you teach with better strategies for communicating their feelings, then this mini workshop is for you. It will engage and empower students to creatively express themselves using animation while you’re spending less time dealing with conflict and more time fostering creative problem solving.

We’ll begin by taking a look at why incorporating animation is one of the best ways to captivate students and help them articulate what they know. We’ll explore what a classroom where students use these techniques looks like. We’ll gather what we need as you prepare for a lesson that incorporates animation. Next, we’ll dive into the “how to's” involved in helping students use animation to articulate what they know while developing a plan to help students of all artistic levels create their animation. We’ll go step by step through the stop motion filming process including how to add audio to their animation and share their results. Finally, we’ll brainstorm ways to challenge advanced learners with this animation process as we find ways to integrate this into the lessons you are already doing with your students.
