General Description

A practical course where you will gain an understanding of how to develop a successful film making program for your classroom and create a stop motion film using animation software and /or iPads on the day. Teachers will be provided with a teaching framework to take back into the classroom. A program outline, visual resources and worksheets will be provided to make this a workable unit in the ICT classroom.
Teachers will work in small groups to develop a narrative, map out a storyboard, create set and characters for their film, learn to use the stop motion software and, finally, explore basic editing, audio and special effects in iMovie. The use of iPad, iPhone and iPod will be incorporated into the course, so teachers should bring their own. All work is on a MAC but these skills are transferable to PC stop motion software.
Also you will learn strategies to manage technology in the classroom.


Stop Motion Animation can be used as a 21st century learning tool in any classroom and every subject.
