Last October, Terry Shay presented the amazing program Animation-Ish at the Iowa Technology and Education Connection Conference. Here is his blog post about the program:
"I was very lucky to be on the Beta-testing team for this program last year. In addition, I wrote fifteen of the lessons that are included in the Activity Guide as part of the Educational Edition.This blog post is going to attempt to answer some questions. Windows and Mac! Wacom tablet or not? Actually, as it says in the system requirements, a drawing table is not required. Most of my students prefer to use a mouse. I LOVE to use the interactive white board!!! You can draw on the board and it is "what you see is what you get."I use it in my classroom, if you go here, here, here, or here, you can see things my students have done with the program.Wait....There is more! When you are done creating your amazing animation, it can be saved in a variety of formats, like Flash or QuickTime. Here are some screenshots and notes so you can get an idea of what the program looks like. The program comes with AWESOME video tutorials by Peter H. Reynolds and the animators at FableVision. Hey, do you think I am the only person who thinks the program is the best? Nope! Here are the awards the program has won so far. Give it a try! Free 15 day download.
