“Students as producers” can be found in everything from gardening to media production, game design and programming. It provides engaging opportunities to teach digital literacy, citizenship and creator’s rights.¹
Teaching kids multimedia skills develops their critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration capabilities and demystifies media and IT technologies.
This is where HB Animation Studio Kit from HamiltonBuhl comes in.
The simple and easy to use Animate It! software has an intuitive interface with stunningly powerful features that will have your students creating stop-motion animations in no time!
The Animation Studio Kit includes a 5MP, 30FPS, gooseneck webcam with a non-slip base and Animate It! stop motion animation software, developed by the award-winning makers of "Wallace & Gromit."
Almost any topic can be made more interesting using stop motion animation, and students will learn from this exciting teaching technique.
