Tell Stories with Animation at make it share it
by Susan Stephenson, www.thebookchook.com
make it share it. It has a great colour palette. Sadly, there is no fill tool, but there's a good range of brush sizes and the interface is simple. The animation tool is truly easy to use. I'd go so far as to say it's fool-proof since I worked it out first go! Basically, it's a matter of drawing a frame, then adding a new one and repeating the process until done.
You can see my test animation, Rough Flight, at the website. I tried to embed it here, but Blogger said the code was broken.
Kids who love to draw will enjoy make it share it. Animating repeated drawings to tell a digital story is a great way to involve kids in story who are not yet confident writers. Children will develop visual literacy skills and be involved in developing a story, expressing themselves, planning, problem-solving, innovating, and concentrating. I hope you'll visit the website with your kids and together have a go at something new!
