In one of my lessons students were tasked with understanding a tricky topic, in this case the three major belief systems of Feudal Japan.
To aid in this we used a concept of telling a story with pictures. Essentially students did some research on the topic. Students then created a small script and storyboard. The next task was to find a series of images that could be used to help explain their story. Finally, students recorded a voice over to the images and could zoom in and out and highlight key areas.
It was a great, tactile and visual way to research, understand and share their findings.
In this case I am focusing on the free App Shadow Puppet, however this concept could easily be used in a variety of apps such as Keynote, iMovie and more.
