Creating Classroom projects and Instructional Aids with FREE Animation Tools

1. You will need a Gmail (Google) acct to make this easier. (It is not completely necessary, but I like a one-stop-shop approach to logging in and seeing my videos.)

2. Log into google acct. and go to YouTube (should be part of your google acct.)

3. Get to the URL
__http://youtube.com/create__
Notice all of the options!

TODAY:
We will be focusing on TWO of these options.
__http://goanimate.com__

__http://xtranormal.com__

These two programs do not require the user to
upload footage.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO BRING TO THE TABLE
IS A SCRIPT OF WHAT YOU WANT SAID.

4. Let’s begin by creating a project script.
Jot down something you would like to create.
Script out a few key messages.
Now write those into a dialogue between two people.
(For your students, a template / graphic organizer would be
great for this part.)

5. We are going to work with xtranormal first. Let’s watch the tutorial, and then move forward.
6. IF TIME: Let’s try
__goanimate.com__ and watch the tutorial before we begin.

7. Share time!

      • A great younger learner resource!***
