These are all very simple animation apps, suitable for learners off all ages.Because it’s not about the apps – it’s the way you use them. For example, two socks talking in “Sock Puppets” might seem pretty basic, but what if one was Captain Arthur Phillip and the other an aboriginal elder and they discussed the arrival of the first fleet? Or how about using the simple flip book in “Flip It” to explain a scientific function such as gravity.
This is so very funky. Create backgrounds and choose your socks then simply give them voice.
Remember the simple animations you used to make on the corner of a book, this is very similar. It has a “shadow” effect to make getting the effect even easier.
We all LOVE Playschool and this app is just as lovable. Even very young children can create an effective animation by dragging and talking. A MUST have app.
Sensational app, combine actors and backdrops then record your story. It’s that easy.
A very simple way to create an animated message called a “Gami”. Customise a character, select a background or use your own photo, add your voice or type a message and you’re done. Then share in the usual ways. Lots of possibilities – reflection, instructions, messages, feedback, exit cards, explanations…….
Turn any image of a person or object into an animated 3D video. Give it a mouth and eyes, record your voice and share the video you create. Brilliant! ( Just be a little careful with this one as there are in app purchases of costumes etc or if you want to save the Morf)
A lovely app to combine a series of images to create a short video. It is very customisable with templates, different coloured backgrounds and customisable fonts. It also include a broad range of images that are easy to search and even music to enhance the story.
So simple to use this one – select your photos, record your voice as you flip from photo to photo and save.a quick video to share.
A lot like Pixn Tell except you can also add music, draw on the images as you record and add stickers and zoom and pan
This is a brilliant little app. Take a picture, swipe a line where you would like the mouth to be and record your voice. So simple that even our youngest leaders can use it but with so many possibilities that it could be used with all year levels and in all subjects. Have a photo of a test tube explain the experiment or a piece of sporting equipment explain how best to use it…..so many possibilities.
DMD Topic is very easy to use. Simply select your image and record your message. The beautiful thing about this app is that you can zoom in and out using your finger to emphasis different parts of your picture as you record.
Draw & Tell is mother great app from Duck Duck Moose (Like ChatterPix Kids) This one lets kids draw using a range of tools, add characters or stencils then record their story. They can even animate their story by moving the objects around as they record. Beautiful and simple
