Stop Motion Animation for the Classroom
In this training, teachers will be introduced to instructional methods and ways to implement a stop motion animation program in their classroom. Teachers will be introduced to a variety of stop motion animation formats, including Claymation, whiteboard, papermation, and object animation, as well as storyboarding, planning, and editing films. Participants will create their own stop motion animation short-film and will build a curriculum that will integrate stop motion into their classrooms. This training will be aimed at upper elementary teachers of all subjects, but will be adaptable to all ages. Some iPads will be available to use; however, we suggest you bring your own device. Please note- the software you will be using is available on both Apple and Android devices.

Level 2: 3D Printing and Design in the Classroom
This training will focus on learning advanced 3D modeling and coding skills using Tinkercad & Scratch (Free, Cloud-Based software) and CoSpaces for VR/AR. This hands-on workshop will give you an opportunity to develop curriculum with fellow educators teaching STEAM and learn how to troubleshoot 3D printers in your classroom. Special emphasis will be placed on how these technologies can be used to include students with disabilities in the art-making process. We will cover how to incorporate these tools into your classroom using iPads, starting a Makerspace for under $500, and maximizing limited equipment for large groups. Some laptops will be available to use; however, we suggest you bring your own device with a mouse.
