Animation

"Using ICT based animation within the classroom may seem to be a big challenge to the busy practitioner. This workshop dealt with various ways of getting started with ICT animation using approaches that are relevant to the Art curriculum. We used Photoshop and Flash software. One approach was to get participants to take a series of digital still images which they got the computer to animate. We then built on the concept of a timeline and showed how Flash can be used to create a variety of different animations." - Alistair Fitchett and Richard Knights

Supporting Literacy with Animation

Animation is an effective way of engaging students in literacy and topic-based projects, using ICT creatively and is a fun cross-curricular activity suited to the classroom environment. This hands-on course introduced tips and tricks to get started quickly and easily. We looked at examples of work, approaches to ideas that will engage and motivate students and then made a short 45 second animation in small groups. Animation is being used in schools wanting to work with a more creative curriculum. - Oscar Stringer
