Digital Storytelling Using Stop-Motion Animation

Storytelling Seminar – Dates listed below
Teachers will learn how to create a stop-motion animation from start to finish, a lesson they can adapt for any grade level or subject area. They will have fun while they create a visual story with animated objects of choice, and edit it into a short film using iMovie. Teachers do not need a background in film or video to succeed in this course. They will emerge with a self-created film and a toolkit to help their students create their own stop-motion animation. This fun, creative, and practical course requires that teachers bring a Mac laptop they can use to edit their films.
