Powtoons are a fun way to learn

Filed under: animation,EDDL 5131,fun learning,powtoon @ 8:08 am

I think I tried to publish this before but I don’t think it worked.I published it to you-tube and I finally found it under powtoon and safety.

I think this kind of animated ‘cartoonish’ approach can capture the interest of some of the younger students.

Unfortunately, the sizing is not the best. I’m not sure how to do this.

    You can change the widths and heights of you “iframe”. Try changing the width to 400 to see if fits. click the preview button on the right side to see if its fits. if not than use another number. It would be good exercise to see what fits.

      “iframe”? I am good at some things, not this. Please tell me where to find the buttons.

    Stick People! I can do stick people. I actually think any student will find animation more approachable as the images come across as less “formal”; and therefore, the content becomes more memorable. I will definitely check out powtoon as I can easily see using animations with my courses.

      Hi Jo,
      A lot of my students (class of 29) are under 20 and frankly, some are immature. They do enjoy something that catches their imagination and is visual. I think this would do the trick. thanks for the comments.
