Animating the Core, February 19 and April 9, 2013, 7 pm EST
Digital animation inspires students. It motivates them to be creative
and make meaningful connections across all subjects. It is an engaging,
fun, and powerful tool that augments students' understanding and
achievement of any common core subject. The results at schools that
implement animation, like Bluffton Elementary (South Carolina), are
impressive and it is the award-winning Toon Boom Animation software
platform that enabled it to happen.
The Power of Digital Storytelling, March 12, 2013, 7 pm EST
Every creative project starts with a concept. Performing arts,
multimedia, gaming, film, and animation classes enable students to
express their creativity and learn how to bring it to life. Using Toon
Boom Storyboard™, students can quickly test their concepts and fine tune
them before moving on to creation and production. Based on Emmy
award-winnin technology, Storyboard is an easy-to-use software that
contributes to developing logical thinking and writing skills.
