This week, students learned the difference between Gifs and Jpegs. Gifs are Graphics Interchange Format images, and are what students are familiar with being animated. Jpegs are Joint Graphics Expert Group images. The difference between the two are Gifs are able to be animated within solid colors. Jpegs are stable images that are not animated, and color range is infinite. Below is some examples of the student created Gifs they uploaded to their design websites.

Here's an overview of our animation IB unit we are working on...
Students have begun creating their stop motion slides with google slides. Students are meticulously making small changes in each slide, duplicating that slide, then continuing to make small changes. They are repeating this process until they have at least 40 slides, with two objects moving, and one of them moving at least 180 degrees. Students are carefully following the assignment requirements that are on the rubric in order to earn the most points possible with their finished project.
