Put Academics in Motion with iPad Animation

Explore one of the oldest forms of filmmaking remade for tablet-based media literacy for the 21st century: learn how to put the art of stop motion animation to use in the classroom with the iPad. The speaker will guide the audience in the selection of a character, setting & problem as the Animation Chefs animate a digital film live on stage. Educators in all academic areas – math, writing, reading, science – walk away knowing how to tap into students’ minds through digital storytelling.
