How I Use It

I used this Xtranormal for an individual assignment.

Students were learning about Social Media so the assignment was to write a script and use Xtranormal to create characters to dialog about what they know about Social Media.

The short cartoon animation was to be no longer than 5 minutes. This was a fun tool for kids to use that helped them be creative while learning at the same time. This assignment went very smoothly with no issues other than students asking if they could use the program for all assignments!

My Take

Xtranormal gives kids the opportunity to apply what they have learned in a very creative way!

"Better than a test or paper" was feedback from students.

As an instructor I was able to see what students learned by their dialog in the script and also see how creative they can be.

The most satisfying outcome for me as an instructor was seeing the quiet students take this assignment and run with it. Students loved how they could show what they learned by having fun using Xtranormal.
