The Guardian: "Movie magic touches students"

by Oliver -

The Guardian in the UK writes about technology in the classroom: Pupils are no longer dragging their heels to traditionally 'boring' lessons like maths and French thanks to an inventive teacher who uses digital video to boost the appeal of unpopular subjects. [...] "The best thing is being involved in the filming, in the editing and even moving the models. It takes concentration and patience," says Daisy Holliday, 11, of Oakhill school and the joint creator of an animation encouraging younger pupils to count in French. [...] The Oakhill film club group used iStopMotion software to catch the movement of various clay creations and then pulled these images into iMovie to add soundtrack and credits.
