Apple Distinguished Educator and animation in education expert Oscar Stringer has assembled a selection of Animation Inspirations for Apple's education website.
The resources explore new ways to engage and inspire pupils through multimedia, and to present information to students. Stop motion animation offers a simple yet effective solution.
The site suggests that stop motion projects help improve language, mathematical, logical, spatial, collaborative and creativity skills. The site focuses on using iLife and Boinx StopMotion in such projects, which "has enabled teachers to integrate animation into the curriculum. With stunning results", the site explains.
Along with a selection of hints and tips, the site offers a series of project-based tutorials and a selection of previously-created samples, along with links to demo versions of useful software products.
