An activity i could do with a primary class is introduce the visual program, ‘Pivot Animator’. This programme was something i really enjoyed playing with in school.
Firstly, i would introduce the programme to the students and explain the fundamentals and basics of how to use it.
I would then set a task for the students to complete.
For example; make the pivot do a star jump.
As the students become more confident with the programme i would be the tasks more difficult.
As students become more experienced, i would ask them to create a ‘short story’ using this animation programme.
