Animated films in the classroom using digital tools: Three pedagogical projects

The purpose of this article is to explore the possibilities of introducing animation, a working pedagogical project, as a method of teaching and learning in both formal and informal contexts. “Teaching” through projects involving different school subjects makes learning more meaningful to the students. Using digital resources brings the pedagogical act into the 21st century, massifying technical processes which were impossible or difficult to work with until some time ago. This is the framework for animation, as a centenary art, to enter into the classroom adding constructivist guidelines to modern working tools. In this article we present and describe three pedagogical experiences developed as projects with school children in formal and informal contexts.
