Using Stop-Action Movies as Student Projects

Stop-Action movies are not only fun to watch, they are fun (and easy!) to create. This session discusses the learning benefits of allowing your students to create stop-action movies for class assignments to demonstrate their understanding of a topic or create an educational video for their peers. When students construct and generate while learning, they become more engaged with the instructional material and learn more than they would by simply watching an instructional animation on the topic. Students get to manipulate and create external representations of their knowledge when they build a stop-action movie and this process can encourage reflection on their own understanding. This session includes a brief overview of research supporting learning through active video creation and a demonstration of how to use SAM animation and iMovie software to create stop-action movies in the classroom.
