LEARN gave a workshop on FlipBoom, an animation software. FlipBoom is available to all the English Education Community of Quebec through a partnership between LEARN and ToonBoom. Once the software is installed, you are ready to start animating. It is a good idea to get a drawing tablet with a stylus.
When you participate in a LEARN Flipboom workshop, you automatically become part of the ToonBoom community. You have access to resources and a forum where you can ask questions, share ideas and get support.
The samples shown below were done by teachers in the afternoon of LEARN workshops. Just imagine what your students could do!
