How I Use It
I have students animate their understanding of concepts we are working on (fractions, story comprehension, etc.). I also have them animate their own stories which I pair with a program like My Awesome Publishing Company to have students create their own books. It's good for helping me assess how well students understood the concepts being taught.
My Take
The kids love animating, and the software is scaffolded in such a way that makes it easy even for young and struggling learners. There are also built in video tutorials and lessons on how to use the software and also to give inspiration on what to use the software for.
