Learning Through Creation: The Power of Making Stop Action Videos on the iPad

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the high school biology classroom, students have historically benefitted from viewing animations when learning complex biochemical and physiological processes. With iPad and an app for making stop action videos, students can now learn these processes by making these animations themselves. This instructional method is a powerful teaching tool that is transferable to all STEM disciplines. By making simple animations from scratch, students confirm their understanding in a fun and creative way. Furthermore, students benefit from developing their collaboration, research, and problem solving skills through a creative endeavor. Ultimately, making these videos allows students to learn and retain the concepts better than if they were to learn these processes using a traditional lecture. Participants will learn how to use the apps effectively and efficiently, how to motivate the students, and how to assess the final product. We will discuss the conflicting goals of content versus creativity, and explore ways in which stop action video making can be used in all disciplines. Participants are encouraged to download iStopMotion to their iOS device prior to the session.
