This is a podcast recording of Malia Triggs’ presentation “Cartooning Around in Language Arts” at the 2011 Mississippi Educational Computing Association annual conference in Jackson on February 8th. Malia is a 5th and 6th grade teacher in Forrest County School District. She discussed how elementary language arts teachers can use the website “Go Animate” with students to help them create short videos in conjunction with writing assignments meeting language arts standards. The official session description was: Learn how incorporating free online animation programs into your language arts lessons can guarantee engagement and excitement, while covering all your objectives in one project. You will explore such reading objectives as, setting, character, author’s purpose, etc. You will explore language skills such as, vivid language, figurative language, steps in the writing process, etc. Student work samples will be available, as well as, a timeline of assignments and MS framework objectives met.
