Frames 6

Resource Description

Frames is the award winning educational software for stop-motion animation, claymation, and digital storytelling. Creating illustrated animations, movies, and digital stories engages students in the curriculum, encourages problem solving, promotes creativity, and helps students develop 21st century skills. Students can use Frames to create movies, animated GIFs, and Flash animations to share with the world.  Students can create stop-motion animated stories using original illustrations they have created with the drawing tools, pictures from a digital or DV camera, or photographs of a clay animation. Connect your digital camera and it appears inside the Frames Library panel. Simply drag the frames you want to add into your animation or import the entire folder at once.

Students can save their work as Flash®, video, animation files to share online, in multimedia presentations, or for inclusion in other video productions.
Cel Animation 
Communicating visually is an essential 21st-century skill. With Frames integrated drawing tools, students can illustrate their own animated diagrams, graphs, procedures, and more, helping them understand concepts that are difficult to explain using text alone.
Clay Animation 
Nothing engages students more than creating clay animation! Use Frames to transform your classroom into an active learning environment and begin having your student develop exciting cross-curricular group projects that incorporate writing and technology skills.
Digital Storytelling 
Digital storytelling is an effective way to engage students in their learning. Creating digital stories with Frames develops students’ ability to interpret events beyond their immediate experience and builds planning, organizational, and time management skills.
