Students in Animation Station work very independently, sometimes alone, but often collaborating in pairs or small groups. They learn to use document cameras and the HUE animation software on our MacBooks. They do all of the project planning and execution. Though we do have a shelf of objects that can be easily filmed, students often use backgrounds and characters that are drawn or printed and cut out. Some even bring items from home.
Some students are doing Scratch Jr. animation. They have to program all the action and scene changes. This is a video of Jane’s Scratch Jr. project.
