Automatoon- Easy Animation For The Web! Automatoon - Create Animations for the Web Automatoon is a free service for creating simple to complex animations that you can reuse anywhere on the web. There are three basic steps to using Automatoon. First, you draw and color your images. You can add as many parts to your Automatoon animations as you like.

Watch the video below for a tutorial on creating animations using Automatoon.

Domo Animate - Make your own Domo Animations and Slideshows with GoAnimate's super easy to use tools. The Whiteboard Blog : Stop Motion Filming with JellyCam The Whiteboard Blog JellyCam is a simple, free piece of software to allow you to make stop motion videos using a webcam. You can download JellyCam for free here. As a complete beginner, I found it very easy to use. There’s very little in the way of whistles and bells. You could use this with a webcam, a visualiser, or upload still photographs taken with a regular digital camera. JellyCam produces a Flash Video file (flv) from your movie and even links straight to YouTube so that you can upload your finished video. Here’s something I put together in about 5 minutes after installing JellyCam. You’ll need Adobe Air to be able to install it. Thanks to Angie at Edit Training for tipping me off to this software.

Little Bird Tales - Home Digital Directors Guild DIGITAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS: Tools and Technologies for Effective Classrooms Classrooms should be fundamentally thoughtful places, environments where students are taught a wide range of higher order conceptual skills to complement the traditional basics of reading, writing, and computation. ~ Terry Roberts, Director of the National Paideia Center Learning is the Adventure of What Can Be How do you think your students would take to becoming an animation movie producer and director? Can you think of ways in which your students could use the animation creator to focus on their ideas? What kind of “higher order conceptual skills” will the students use to show they understand what you want them to learn? I am a “learn by doing” person.
