How I Use It
My 5th grade students were taking tons of pictures for stop motion animation on their iPad. As they began to put the photos together on their device's iMovie, the Ken Burns effect caused the photos to zoom in and out. It was disappointing and I thought we needed to purchase a stop motion app to complete the project. A student brilliantly figured out that we could use Shadow Puppet Edu to finalize the animations!
My Take
Having a free app versatile enough to allow students to create, narrate and adapt with other projects is great. Other apps are similar but this one was exactly what we needed!
