I have used brush ninja a few times this year to allow kids a chance to make their own animated gifs while illustrating their learning. One week we illustrated vocabulary terms, some students showed a change in a character’s feelings, and others showed natural disasters or events. No matter the task, brush ninja allows an element of creativity in their demonstration of understanding. We can’t get enough! Easy to use and customize, students learn quickly how to change a background, duplicate a slide to show change gradually, and to save to their google drives and share images with peers. Here are a few students samples, all quickly created in one class session.
