Stop Animation Work Day

Today we will keep working on making the set-up and taking the footage you need.  If your group is done with these two stages, we will move to the next one– film editing.

You can choose to use your own laptop or the one in the laptop cart.   One good thing is that the laptops here don’t delete your data when you log out.  Therefore, you don’t need to worry about losing your stuff.

Most of you responded to my survey expressed the interest in learning iMovie.  Therefore, I will talk about iMovie with the whole class.  If you prefer using Movie Maker or the App– MyStopAction, please let me know and I will teach you how to do it with you and your group members.

As for the cross-cultural communication, there are several things that I need your help.

1220 Class

  1. You will know your partner this Friday…so come this Friday, we will let you know who your partner is.
  2. During spring break, if you can find a little bit time to read your partner’s self-introduction, that will be great!
  3. If you have already prepared the images to talk about sports, don’t forget that you have the choice to post it in VoiceThread and send me the link to earn your bonus points!
  4. After spring break, you need to comment on your partner’s 2nd week comments and also start the third week discussion post and comment.
  5. If you want/ like, you can start to think about the guiding questions for stop animation project.

1325 Class

  1. Please comment on your partner’s self-introduction.  (Some of you have already done that, and I believe that helps you know more about Taiwan and also your partner.)
  2. Please post and comment in the first week discussion thread.
  3. After spring break, you need to comment on your partner’s 2nd week comments and also start the third week discussion post and comment.
  4. If you want/ like, you can start to think about the guiding questions for stop animation project.

I know I owe you the grades…you will get them during spring break.  If you have any questions or concerns about your grades, just email me or talk to me after spring break.

I will send out emails about what you should prepare for projects after spring break before we meet on March 18 (Monday).  Before that, just enjoy your spring break!
