How I Use It
We used it to create a animated fairy tale. Once the students wrote their own fairy tale and designed their characters, they used this app to animate their fairy tale. Students enjoyed working on this app. It is good tool to assess the ELL students, to check how well they express themselves.
My Take
If this tool is used in the kindergarten then their needs to be some preparation from the teacher side. The characters have to be manually cut out (the background) by the teacher for students. In grades 1 and 2 the students can do by themselves. It is a great tool for the students to show off their creativity and a great tool for the teacher to assess students understanding.
