I love Bitmojis! I know it’s not for everyone, but they just make me happy. They make students happy too! My students love when I put “stickers” on their digital work. They sometimes even give me stickers as suggestions when they submit a project. A few years ago, I wrote a blog post about creating custom feedback stickers and putting them in Google Keep for ease of use.
Today I’m going to update that post with animated gif stickers. I mean, the only thing that could be better than Bitmoji stickers is animated Bitmoji stickers!!!
Open a new Google Slides (or PowerPoint, or Keynote if you want an easy transparent background) and go to file – page setup, select custom and change the size to 8 x 8 inches.
If you are using PowerPoint or Keynote, change the background to Transparent.
Animate your sticker slide by slide! Tutorial here
Here are a few ideas:
Add word by word and or a moving arrow
Add letter by letter
Turn your sticker into an animated GIF
Google Slides – TallTweets.com is so easy to use (tutorial here). It allows you to simply load your presentation with out any additional steps.
If you REALLY want a transparent background, the easiest way is to use PowerPoint or Keynote. They both have export as GIF options (come on Google!!!)
Open keep.google.com. By placing your image in Google Keep, you can simply drag your sticker into any Google Slide or Doc you want to use them in.
Create a new note with image.
Select your sticker. I don’t title it because it will drag the title with it. You can create a label called stickers or feedback so you can sort if you would like.
Now open something to give feedback on. The image below is a Google Slide. On the RIGHT you will see 3 icons. The middle one is Google Keep.
It opens your Google Keep and you can see your stickers. Select the one you want and drag it over.
I know you’re thinking, this is great for elementary but I teach middle or high school. Your secondary students will LOVE these. They are still just kids!
