How I Use It
While this is a great tool for the story arch, you can use it to animate almost anything, and fairly easily. Just showing people how to use it takes only a few minutes. Students do need to have a plan in place before getting started on creating - or it will use up valuable class time, but a short intro on the functionality of the program will give them the ideas they need to make the plan.
My Take
I love it, because the kids become makers and it is something they can take with them in their digital portfolio and edit throughout their educational journey until they have a really excellent end product.
