We’ve reviewed GoAnimate here at Instructify before, but the site recently launched a school version of its animation software that is worth writing about because, well, it’s free. With GoAnimate for Schools, teachers can sign up for a free classroom account that provides up to 100 student accounts. While there are some limitations on characters and movie run times (2 minutes), GoAnimate still provides ample possibilities for students to make interesting movies. And in my experience with GoAnimate, young people just love to use the site for all sorts of creative projects.
GoAnimate is a web-based animation system that allows users to add speech bubbles, audio, movement, and more to simple movies. The videos are hosted at the GoAnimate site. On the resource page, there are sample movies, lesson ideas, and more at the school section that run the curricular range of technology, literature, and even community action projects.
