Frame by Frame: Using Stop Motion Animation in the Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“In today’s world, it’s no longer how much you know that matters; it’s what you can do with what you know.” With this belief, students need to be engaged in meaningful tasks, which represent their point of view and understanding. In the session, we will explore how using stop motion animation with elementary school children creates a classroom community of problem solving, collaboration, imagination and communication. We believe that learning is authentic when each student is an active participant in his or her own education. The presenters will:

  • Spotlight projects completed in our elementary school that have used stop motion
  • Emphasize the learning journey students went through with these projects 
  • Demonstrate how these projects naturally bring out higher order thinking skills in students
  • How stop motion can be used as a means of assessment 
  • Explore the academic rigor involved in these projects
