How I Use It
I used GoAnimate to create an animation on an activity that we have at our school. When I showed the finished products to my students, they loved it! They even seemed to listen more because the animations were talking. It was a fun way to deliver a message to my students. In the future, I would like to have my students take a concept and teach it through GoAnimate. I think they would have fun creating the finished product and they would learn by sharing/viewing other students' GoAnimate videos.
My Take
I think GoAnimate is a great tool to use to teach content and to allow students to create a variation of a product. If you incorporate a storyboard into the process, it would enhance the learning process even more. My only issue with GoAnimate is that many of the selections are premium features. I wish they had an education app that was not so expensive.
