Ever tried Stop Motion to show learning in motion???

If students can envision it in motion, they can show it in motion on the screen with Google Slides (or PowerPoint). Students can create animations by creating a slide, duplicating it, moving it slightly, and repeating over and over again. When they flip through the slides, it's an animation. This is great for showing a cycle or process as well as dialogue between characters.

Make Photo Comic Strips/books with Slides!

It's easy to snap pictures with your device and add them to Google Slides or PowerPoint. When students do this, they become the stars of the assignment! How can students use images of themselves to demonstrate a skill or new concept? Then, how can they annotate with speech/thought bubbles, extra info, etc. to take it to the next level?
