Nope. None of the above.
I am playing with a Stop Motion video maker and thinking of the classroom applications.
I know...I'm stupid.
Stop Motion Studio - FREE iPad app
I don't even remember how my brain got onto Stop Motion animation in the first place. Sheesh.
Somehow, I stumbled across this iPad app. I watched a quick tutorial and off I went, with the unwilling assistance of my 10 year old. We drew some quick simple drawings and I printed some letters/words on my home printer.
It was super easy to make. My son manned the iPad and took all the pictures and I moved the pieces. Once we had all of our pictures taken, it was a simple matter of saving the video to the camera roll on the iPad and then uploading it to YouTube.
