Entry level animation for K-12
I have a course I'm starting for high school freshman. My goal is to teach them a very new modern way. Here is the plan:
Week 1-2 Mac OS X
Weeks 3-4 Graphic Design
Weeks 5-7 Video in Photoshop
Weeks 8-11 Web Design with Muse
Weeks 12-14 Animation.....
Weeks 15-16 Final Project
This is the big question, week 12-14 animation. I want to use a simple tool just so they can get a taste. It has nothing to do with best practices at this point I just want them to have a successful experience where there is no right or wrong answer. I think Flash may be a little heavy and intricate. So I am leaning to Edge Animate. Has anyone tried Edge Animate with High School Students? Is it right for first timers? What's the learning curve?
