Animating the Core, February 19 and April 9, 2013, 7 pm EST

Digital animation inspires students. It motivates them to be creative and make meaningful connections across all subjects. It is an engaging, fun, and powerful tool that augments students' understanding and achievement of any common core subject. The results at schools that implement animation, like Bluffton Elementary (South Carolina), are impressive and it is the award-winning Toon Boom Animation software platform that enabled it to happen.

The Power of Digital Storytelling, March 12, 2013, 7 pm EST

Every creative project starts with a concept. Performing arts, multimedia, gaming, film, and animation classes enable students to express their creativity and learn how to bring it to life. Using Toon Boom Storyboard™, students can quickly test their concepts and fine tune them before moving on to creation and production. Based on Emmy award-winnin technology, Storyboard is an easy-to-use software that contributes to developing logical thinking and writing skills.
