The Teachers' Animation Toolkit
Including animation in your classroom can:
• improve literacy and numeracy
• develop critical thinking, communication and problem-solving skills
• enhance teamwork and negotiation
• encourage creativity
This toolkit, together with an extensive companion website, will give you the confidence to use animation in your classroom. From teaching basic flip-book animation right through to producing an animated film, there are drawing templates for the less confident artists and tried-and-tested schemes of work, plus advice on how to use animation equipment and what technology and software is available.
This practical, cross-curricular resource is particularly suitable for use with students aged 11-16, although many of the activities can be adapted for older or younger students. It can be used in Art, Media Studies, ICT and many other subjects to engage learners of all styles and abilities.
