Find out about the benefits of using animation in secondary classrooms, along with useful tips and resources, in this pedagogical ICT resource for those less confident with technology.
The video looks at how animation can encourage in-depth analysis, the equipment needed to create an animation, and how to add sound to an animation.
Head of history Will Rennie has never used animation in his classroom so he visits Thomas Deacon Academy to observe a Year 7 cross-curricular art and literacy lesson run by Emily Blissitt. Emily explains the technology to Will and shows him how to use it to enhance teaching and learning.
Will watches as the class create a stop-frame animation based on the poem Prince Kano and discusses how he might use the same ICT equipment in his history lessons.
Back at his own school, Will delivers a lesson to his Year 9 students in which they create an animation about the rise of the Nazi party in Germany after the first world war.
This is an enhanced video, giving you access to extra video and resources directly from the video player.
