Second grade students make a snowman, then take a flight with him using art, animation, and imagination
If you have been following me on twitter, you would know that I'm currently in an augmented reality frenzy. I keep wanting to make everything around me and my students come to life with augmented reality. I now have a collection of children's book covers that come to life through animation and the EyeJack app. Explore them here.
The Sneetches comes to life using the EyeJack app after the effect is loaded by scanning the QR code.
This animation was made by
1. making out the character using Brushes Redux
2. Tracing the character in Do Ink Drawing app
3. Copying it multiple times and redrawing arms and legs in different poses to create a walking sequence
4. Then I used Do Ink composition mode to combine the masked photo and walking animation with a path.
5. I duplicated/flipped it to make it walk back.
This movie became the overlay and the original cover was the trigger in Eyejack app.
I learned from Paul Hamilton on Twitter about an augmented reality app that I plan on using to replace HP Reveal called EyeJack app. It has a creator app for the mac desktop and an app for your device. You set up a trigger, overlay, and option audio in the creator then scan the QR code it generates to load the effect (the first time). Look at the tweet below to see what my cover page looks like when you scan the QR code in the app.
Students were given roles, iPads, bendable monsters, instruction sheets, and 20 minutes to make a collaborative stop motion animation monster dance video.
With the help of over a dozen supporters making generous donations to my Donor's Choose professional development grant, I was able to attend the National Art Education Conference in Boston. Thank you to the Dryden parents, teachers from my online personal learning network on twitter, and art teacher colleagues from around the country who donated!
