The story of Fishing Village

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, January 23, 2:02 AM

Since Xtranormal ceased trading last year .. I have searched the web for a replacement without much success.  However, Plotagon runs a good close second; it is a tool that lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose actors, environments and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.

I am piloting it now it's completely free and currently in beta stage, but you can start using it right now.

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

I am pretty sure as you introduce the idea to your students everyone will want to have a say in their next e-magazine. There is nothing much more rewarding to students then to have a proof of their hard work recognized in a publication of some sort.

 

Most of the tools cited here are easy to use and have user friendly interface and they will let you create your own e-magazine or newspaper in few simple steps. Yet I would recommend your discretion as you use them with your students.

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

Kids learn best when they see how things work, when, where and why they happen. Watching educational videos is a great way to learn because it allows kids to build a visual picture or model in their mind. The visual dimension not only helps them understand concepts better but also stimulates curiosity and encourages self-training.
