Bring your Students writing to life with Go-Animate

My kids love to use animation tools such asKahootzandPivotto bring their wacky ideas to life.  While these tools are great they definitely have their limitations. GoAnimatehas to be the best online animation tool I have come across and it is really not that far off budget TV quality.  Students can create their own characters from scratch, import their own visuals and audio and access GoAnimates monstrous database of props and backgrounds.  This is a great tool to stimulate reluctant writers and your dramatically minded kids will love it. I think the best way to describe GoAnimate is to have a look at their demo video below.  I would love to hear from anyone that uses it regularly for some lesson suggestions.  Check it out here
