Green Screen Movie Making

I’m currently teaching “Tech Zone” in the summer program, and it gives me the opportunity to experiment with different tech tools. One of my favorites, that the children love is the Green Screen app by DoInk. It is $2.99 and worth every penny. Below are the short movies first graders made this week. It is […]

Students Love Stop Motion Animation

I am excited for the opportunity to present at Deep Learning in Malaysia. I’ve made some big improvements to my Stop Motion Animation workshop, adapting it to the focus of the conference.

In the workshop we will be using the iStopMotion app. It is my favorite, and well worth the $9.99. See my review for more details. […]

Screencasting Resources

As a long time Mac user my go to screencasting app is Quicktime Pro. If you are a Windows user you might want to try Windows Media Player. (Disclaimer: I’ve never used it.) I realize there are fewer options available for online tools than there were a few years ago.  Below are a few of the […]

Make Movies From Google Photos

More Student Stop Motion

I have been doing stop motion animation with students since 2011, and it has been a lot of fun. I have worked with students in several curricular areas, and also was the advisor of a stop motion club for two years. I have started a playlist (below) of a few of my favorites.

Stop Motion Animation on iTunes U

I’m very excited to announce that my Stop Motion Animation iTunes U course has been published in the Apple Distinguished Educators Lessons for the Classroom series. I think it is a good resource for learning and teaching stop motion animation in very few steps. The course has some guidelines for how to set up projects, […]
