We will see how kids (and teachers) can animate anything with the PuppetMaster app, and learn (or teach) while they’re at it. Created by an animation professional who teaches art and animation on the side, this app lets users easily animate their artwork, toys, friends, anything! Just move your body in front of the device or touch and drag on the screen, all while you talk or sing. Your puppet will come to life instantly, doing and saying whatever you want. You can choose anything to be your background too. The result is an animated video you can save or share.
As we learn to use the app, we will explore different examples of how this open ended visual storytelling tool can be used to teach a variety of subjects and meet academic standards in a creative, engaging way.
This is a great example of STEAM and arts integration, and of the the R in the SAMR model. The app was named by the AASL on their 2018 list of Best Apps for Teaching and Learning, among other accolades from educational organizations.
Let’s get creative together! What will YOU animate?
