Technology in Transit — Stop Motion Animation

Technology in Transit is a monthly event organized by Educational Technology Support (ETS) office for students in the Faculty of Education to showcase their learning technologies. The purpose of this one-hour session is to raise awareness of different technologies and to show how to incorporate them into classrooms.

This month, Kateryna Baranova, our previous TLEF project co-op student, and Wendy Zhang, our new TLEF Project co-op student, introduces the use of a stop motion animation app.

The iOS app is called “Stop Motion Studio” developed by CATEATER, LLC and is available on the apple store. The app narrows down on the relevant functionalities specific to stop motion animation, making it an easy and straightforward process. You can create the stop motion animations with clay, cut-outs, LEGO, you name it! It’s a great way to explore storytelling and multimedia. Users can use it on their mobile devices or on an iPad without the need of a computer. There is a both a free and paid version where the paid version includes additional features such as themes, sound clips and filters.

More information about the app can be found here.
