Using HUE Animation to Teach a Gold Rush Lesson

Using HUE Animation to Teach a Gold Rush Lesson

Meet Dianne Csoto, teacher extraordinaire at an extraordinary school.  Dianne teaches fourth grade at Mountain View Elementary School in sunny southern California.  Mountain View Elementary School is a partner school with HUE, and we love our collaboration!

Dianne recently used HUE Animation Studio to teach a social studies lesson on the Gold Rush.  Here is the video her students created:

Dianne lists some of the things she and her students learned from making this video:

1.  Practice the script before recording it. Pauses can disrupt the action.
2. Move the pieces, not the camera.
3. If you accidentally delete frames, they can be found in the trash file on your computer.  Makes it hard to put back in order, but at least they are still there.
4. If you use green screen, it is better to fill in the background as you go, than to do when the whole movie is done as it can be tedious (but looks very cool!)
Have you and your students made a video using HUE Animation Studio?  We’d love to highlight it–just let us know!
