Digital Storytelling Tools (Aaron Moore)
iStopMotion for iPad $9.99
I also had that grade one class make thermatropes and they loved them. I think all ages would find them fun to make, older students wouldn’t even need the bird template but I’ll attach it here.
One idea I haven’t used yet is having students create radio plays, like the old time radio shows people loved before there were televisions. There’s a great Radiolab podcast episode about War of the Worlds that would be great to share with students, presuming their age level is appropriate.
Pinnacle: http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/Products/Consumer+Products/Home+Video/Studio+Family/Pinnacle+Studio+for+iPad.html I’ve used iMovie and Pinnacle to film grade 4-6 students performing a story they wrote using cut out puppets and a shadow screen. Then we used Garage Band to add dialogue, narration and sound effects. All of this was put together on the iPads, you can bring audio into iMovie that you made with Garage Band. One issue is that the iPad 2 I have records a bit more than it shows you on the screen as you record, which meant seeing some arms and shoulders that I’d thought weren’t in the frame. The Pinicle app had a bit more professional tools than iMovie, like letting you crop part of the video you didn’t mean to record.
Known for his picture book, The Dot, Peter H. Reynolds’ has promoted animation software called Animation-ish that I haven’t used but looks promising.
