What is Slowmation?
A “Slowmation” (abbreviated from “Slow Animation”) is a simplified way for university or school students to design and make a narrated stop-motion animation that is played slowly at 2 frames/second to explain a concept or tell a story. The explanation can be enhanced with text or music and is an engaging way to learn because students conduct research and use their own technology to design a sequence of representations culminating in the slowmation, which is a multimodal digital representation.
Slowmation was created by Professor Garry Hoban from the Faculty of Social Sciences’ School of Education at the University of Wollongong, Australia.
