Animation in Education

Home Teacher Professional Development Animation in Education

The Animation in Education Programme aims to develop the skills of teachers and students in producing short claymation and cardboard animation films using small, inexpensive cameras and computer software. The project is built around the belief that art is crucial to a well-balanced education, and allows students to combine theory and technical knowledge on the one hand, with the development of creativity and social skills on the other.

Animation in Education covers everything from manual skills to the process of creative production. A considered approach to teaching animation makes the programme suitable for all ages, and for those working at varying degrees of ability. The programme also provides a suitable framework for educational planning focused on skill development, where the student is both a learner and producer of knowledge.
