Sacred Heart Primary I Can Animate

The school’s ICT Committee requested the ‘I Can Animate’ software to enrich the learning experience of pupils.  ‘I can create, capture and manipulate sounds, text and images to communicate experiences, ideas and information in creative and engaging ways.’ TCH 1-04a

We used the equipment with a group of P4 pupils. They used a range of resources to make a creative animation. The committee intended to timetable the equipment for use from P4-P7 but staff and pupil feedback informed us that training may be required for staff or workshops with specialist staff and pupils prior to rolling out the equipment to classes.

“The potential of I Can Animate to bring learning to life in a creative and collaborative way was great but I would like training on the technical aspects of using the software and examples of how it has been used effectively in class.”P2/3 teacher

“I enjoyed using the laptop and camera and making a movie.” P4 pupil
