How I Use It
I tried to use the app to spark my upper level learner's interest in publishing a piece of writing. I had my students check out the settings and characters available, create a per-writing plan in a notebook then create their cartoon one frame at a time while recording their story. It was difficult for my students to adjust to frame by frame dialog and narration.
My students were highly engaged at first. Some even wanted to enter the pirate contest offered by Toontastic last year, but they rarely finished what they started and needed one- on-one instruction for entire project. I would like to try it again with older students.
