This course meets OSPI’s STEM requirements

Stop Motion Animation for the Creative Classroom develops a skill base for creating short movies in the classroom using iPads, iPhones or laptop computers.  Learn how to develop basic storyboard ideas, easy set-up, zero to low cost BYOD (bring your own device) classroom equipment, materials, props, sets, and simple adaptations plus on line resources. Classroom students can easily create stop motions animation films either as individual projects or working within collaborative groups.  Watch the excitement build and the creativity fly as students use ideas, concepts, and/or themes to develop enriching technology based stop motion short films.  Projects can be developed to enrich curriculum concepts, generate creative project ideas, or establish a foundation for basic 21st century technology use in the classroom.
            This course is open to K-12 teachers in all subject areas. Stop Motion animation can be integrated with every grade level and every discipline; it can even be used to enhance the classroom Common Core Curriculum. This course will provide step-by-step instructions, videos, examples, basic equipment needed, websites and classroom resource ideas for K-12 teachers that may easily meet most common core and state standards.
            This is interactive, student friendly. Participants will be granted private access to an on going web site where links to final developed animated stop motion projects and exemplars can be viewed.
