We started out our RESULTS Digital Media Arts class with Go Noodle today... and these kids are too darn cute!
We also started our screencasting planning. YouTube was down for a bit, so I was unable to show some videos, so instead, I brought up Explain Everything app and we tested out making a screencast! This one was done with myself, and my good friend Brian, from Mrs. Stump's class. I was so proud of his math problem-solving!
In 5th grade, we learned all about animation - and I showed them my Prezi from yesterday. Then, the kids started to storyboard their stop motion animation projects! We will need to storyboard a bit more, but we will begin animating! Here are some awesome examples of some 5th grade storyboards!
These kids are so excited for animation! Woo hoo! It's going to be a fun year!
Today was the first day of RESULTS for 1st and 6th graders... and it was so much fun! The first graders started their day with some Go Noodle (Pop See Ko!), which is always a blast!
Then we talked about screen casting. I showed them a few YouTube examples:
And the students worked on storyboarding their own math related stop-motion! The kids are really excited about this new adventure - and so am I!
The 6th graders were introduced to stop motion animation today. I showed them a Prezi I created showing TONS of awesome examples! I also showed them my Lego stop motion attempts. Some students started planning their animation! Click here to access the planner the students used. Then, the students shared their progress with the group (sorry the picture is so dark!).
It's going to be a great year with these kiddos!
Our 5th (and some 6th) grade students created free accounts on Prezi! Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software and story-telling tool for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas. It allows students to construct and present their knowledge in different learning styles. Students are able to login to www.prezi.com and access/edit their presentations from anywhere! Check out the Prezi introduction video below!
