How I Use It
I used it for teaching the parts of a narrative: setting, characters, problem, climax, conclusion. The students can recreate scenes from history, but the characters might not look historically accurate!
My Take
You can create your own somewhat animated videos with this app. It is great for teaching narrative form, and the kids can recreate scenes from history. However, the characters look a bit cheesy and they move quite stiffly. The students love this app though, but it has a limited number of characters.
