Welcome to Press And Mentions, a new series on Educator Experiences. Here, we show off some of our favorite mentions from around the web that feature GoAnimate for Schools and educational uses of our popular consumer site, GoAnimate.com, out in the wild!
Today we want to share a great blog post and mention by Rachel Weaver.
See a snippet here:
The program, called Go!Animate, lets students work in groups on school-issued laptops. Each group shows its cartoon to the class, so everyone gets the lesson.
“I don’t like them memorizing definitions and regurgitating them back to me,” said Leung, a teacher of six years. “I will spend days lecturing; I don’t discredit that. But once they have the background knowledge, I want to see them demonstrate that knowledge.”
Students say the strategy works.
“I’ll remember more (working on the Go!Animate project) than taking notes,” said Hanna Tappe, 14, a freshman from Shaler.
