Tool #5 - Videos/Animation
After working on an Xtranormal video and Stupeflix video, I began to realize the power of video as a way to gain the student's attention in order to bring them into a lesson. Our most recent project in Art I deals with facial proportions. Besides an actual demonstration in class, I showed the students a YouTube time-lapse video of drawing facial proportions/feataures. I saw first-hand how this grabbed their attention. In addition, the video production is a nice team-building assignment for students, as they can see the various steps that go into making a successful presentation.
