Final Greek Myth Animation Creator works by 6-1 Fall ’12

Another year of using the awesome Animation Creator HD app with the students as they design Greek Myths into an animated form that tells a story about a current societal/environmental problem

Ryan really utilized sound fx for his cartoon on bullying

This year is the first time the kids are using the iPads with the app, so they have a larger canvas and a bit more bells and whistles such as adding sound effects and narration.

Check out some of the previous work that I did with Animation 

Some people may think these cartoons, like Addy’s are violent. I think they are PERFECT! Ancient Greece was a dark time and I think they used myths to entertain and frighten. 

I got some great resources such as off of Discovery Education for their Greek Myth writing, and works of animation that are already based on Greek Myths

McCarthy’s animation helps illustrate that Greek myths helped teach morals for every day life. If they didn’t help out, they could be punished by the Gods. Like Medusa and Hurricane Sandy

Some of the students did an amazing job with the dedication to this project, as we must have spent about a total of over three weeks on it – from conception to completion.

Eli’s has some pretty smooth animation with enjoyable sound fx. I like how he focuses on the problem of air pollution and how a hero has to clean it up

I had each one of them save their videos to the Camera Roll on the iPad and then simultaneously post it to their eportfolio on Kidblog, but also post it to Edmodo so that I could download it from there and blog it here – which would then autopost to YouTube so that I could make a playlist.
