Approaches to Learning: Using Stop-animation Videos to Learn Concepts
February 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST$45.00
(W Feb 17, 1-2:30pm Eastern Standard Time)
Combat attrition with engaging assignments that can be sculpted to the student’s abilities and interests. Stop-animation videos are short movies made with a series of photos taken from the same position and a handful of items that can be moved about to create a story. In this1.5 hr. workshop, you will create your own stop-animation video of processes or phenomena, to cover main ideas or convey detailed information. Through this experience, you will see how this teaching technique can be used to deepen understanding, reinforce the use of terms, and work out the sequence of events for a content topic. We will use online teaching methods to build your repertoire for synchronous instruction, and you will experience how the use of shared materials and peer editing can be used to enhance remote learning. The techniques taught in this workshop can be utilized in either a remote or in-person classroom.
