Sometimes you stumble across something and you are not sure exactly HOW you will use it in the classroom but you need to know about it JUST IN CASE you need it. This is one of those apps. I’m thinking my students might be able to use this when they make their choose your own adventure stories or their quadrilateral comics.
This website https://sketch.metademolab.com/ is still being developed and improved but it is sooo much fun.
1. Draw a picture. I learned from experience that you want shoes facing the same direction because when your character is walking, their foot will be turned the wrong direction if you don’t. LOL!!! I drew a picture of Mr. Tolen because it was his birthday.
2. Upload your image to the website. The program will ask you to set your bending reference points. You can adjust these later if they aren’t working correctly.
3. Select the animation you want to try. I tried them ALL! It was so much fun. Some of them work really well, some not as well. Pick the one you want.
Select how you want to share your creation.
Using https://cloudconvert.com/, I converted the downloaded .mp4 file and created an animated gif.
Here it is with my Bitmoji. 🧡
How could you use this in your classroom?
