Popplet La animación como ayuda en el aprendizaje multimedia | Recursos TIC para profesores La mayoría de nosotros conocemos la animación como una forma de entretenimiento a través de dibujos animados como Pingu. Pero la animación también se presenta como una tecnología multimedia con gran potencial educativo, que va mucho más allá de simplemente crear figuras de plastilina y cortometrajes. En un detallado estudio “Animation as an Aid to Multimedia Learning” (La animación como ayuda en el aprendizaje multimedia) que publicaba el “Educational Review Psychology” se mostraba la efectividad de la animación en estudiantes universitarios, a la hora de memorizar, atender, almacenar y recuperar información adquirida. Desde el arte, las ciencias y las matemáticas, la animación en el aula puede promover una mejor comprensión de las materias, si lo comparamos con un formato de presentación verbal (dominante en nuestras aulas) y siempre que se utilice bajo ciertas condiciones, según nos indica este estudio.

Little Bird Tales - Home STOP MOTION NOW Recursos para la técnica de animación en educación secundaria y ciclos formativos: castellano Animación blog "bicharte": tutoriales La técnica para hacer un stop motion es muy sencilla. Básicamente sólo necesitas mantener fija (en un trípode, mesa, suelo, etc...) una cámara. Capturar imágenes (disparar fotos) a medida que mueves los objetos, las personas, los dibujos de un cuaderno a modo de flipbook o flolioscopio o los muñecos de plastilina articulados. Deberás capturar una fotografía para cada frame (fotograma) del movimiento, teniendo en cuenta que necesitarás para que éste salga fluido, hacer un promedio de 12 a 15 imágenes para cada segundo de acción. Una animación se puede hacer incluso sólamente con dos imágenes que varíen, como en los gifs. Al unir todas las fotos o capturas en el ordenador dale siempre el menor valor temporal que te permita tu editor de video y a cada foto en tu computadora. Se puede utilizar también una app específica para dispositivos móviles como por ejemplo iMotion o un sitio web que ya te las une ,como por ejemplo Monkey Jam. otros enlaces:
