What is is? Go Animate for Schools is a fun, easy to use site that gives students the ability to create their own animated movie. Students simply drag and drop backgrounds, characters, and objects to create each scene. Go Animate for Schools is free for teachers with up to 100 students. Once teachers set up accounts for their students, only those students can access this online world. It is a safe, teacher controlled learning platform where students can share their animated creations with their classmates.
Why use it? Go Animate for Schools gives students an alternative way to express what they know. Instead of the traditional report, in which students either write with pencil and paper, or use Word or PowerPoint, Go Animate gives students the ability to creatively express what they have learned. This new platform can encourage reluctant learners and is highly motivating and engaging for all students.
