Digital animation

26th February 2010 at 00:00

Dysart Primary in Fife has been praised by HMIE for its digital animation work. As part of an interdisciplinary project, children have been creating digital comic strips and animations with their own backing tracks. Two classes are involved at present, and the animations are linked to class topics on the Jacobites and the 1960s. One class is using stop motion, while the other is animating photographs and pictures and inserting them into appropriate backgrounds. The children have been planning, coming up with ideas, making decisions and problem solving to make their ideas work. They are really excited about the project and keen to show their animations to other classes and parents. The school plans to extend the project to all classes.
