This is a great video and example of claymation’s power to assist in the explanation of complex ideas.

Charlie Mahoney shared a good session on using claymation in the classroom last week at iConnect iLearn.

My own Claymation resources, links, and published student projects from claymation summer workshops I’ve led for students the past two years are on:

If your kids are looking for an engaging and fun digital way to “show what they know,” consider a claymation digital storytelling project! If “Plato’s Allegory of the Cave” can be effectively explained with claymation, what else can? Just about anything. 🙂

H/T to Richard Byrne!

    These are great, Wes. We did some recent digital storytelling in our class inspired by Common Craft (and even used your hail photos). The students wanted to try claymation but the year was almost over and no time to get started. I’d like to try it next year. Thanks for the inspiration.
