Stop Animation Day 2



National Educational Technology Standard (NETS) for Creativity and Innovation:

Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology.
a. Apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes
b. Create original works as a means of personal or group expression
c. Use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues
d. Identify trends and forecast possibilities



Things to check:

  1. What content is your video teaching? Is it clear to the viewer? How can you make it more clear?
  2. Does your video tell a story? Are you sure? Who is the main character? What is the plot?
  3. Detailed Rubric


As we promised, you should begin your filming today.

Step 1. Find good partners– creative, responsible, similar schedule, easy to meet with…(this project will take a lot of time and effort…so I will suggest that you work with at least one partner).

Step 2. Choose a topic. The best topics are ones that shows cycles, systems, formulas, strategies, processes, etc. If you are choosing a K-12 subject, make sure you consider GRADE LEVEL, SUBJECT, and GEORGIA PERFORMANCE STANDARD when your group decides the topic.

Step 3. Brainstorm and create a storyboard for your video.

Step 4. Decide what props and equipment your group will need. Work on building props.

Step 5. Take pictures of your props. You can check out a camera and a tripod in OIT, Aderhold 232 (You will need your UGA ID).

Step 6. Import the pictures to iMovie.  To see how to use iMovie, click here.

Step 7. Edit and animate your pictures. Add narration and music if necessary.

Step 8. Once you’ve finished your videos – “share” them to our class Youtube account. The login information will be announced in class.

Step 9. Share the Youtube link with your group.

Step 10.  Each group member should create a “Stop Animation” page in one’s BLOGS.

Step 11. On the page, embed your stop animation video and write a short description about the video and the project in general. (check, Rubric)


You’ll select 2 cases from a list of 6 to explore. You’ll have a chance to learn about podcasting, learning environment design, mobile treasure hunts, flipped classrooms, and more. These are independent projects and each option has a written documentation piece to go along with it. Feel free to contact me, if you have any questions or concerns.
