The Lower School ICT Masterclass children had an enjoyable day this week when they were challenged to create an animation. After introducing the topic, the children looked at some short animation sequences before embarking on their own. They had to create their own backgrounds, using the variety of drawing shapes available on PowerPoint. Clip Art was banned! Once they had their simple backgrounds they could begin to create their creature. The children knew that the only limit on what they produced was their own imagination, so it was interesting to see their creations emerging! There were a lot of different techniques for them to remember, such as grouping and ungrouping as they created their slides. In the afternoon parents attended the workshop, where the children were able to teach their parents the skills they had learned to produce their own slide.
