30 Days of Animation - Remix the Ordinary

When we play, no matter our age, we engage our imaginations, build creative confidence, and increase the neural connections in our brains. Moreover, play can reduce stress, ease anxiety, and boost joy and self-esteem. It can build literacy skills through communication, listening, and exploration of narrative structures. And play enhances curiosity, deepens critical thinking, and nurtures adaptive pathways, all of which can contribute to a successful future. 

Animation is one of the most influential creative tools we have to tell stories, communicate emotions, and connect people worldwide. Every person can animate using iPad and imagination in today's modern world. With animation, you bend the laws of nature, giving you the ability to bring any idea or concept, no matter how complex or crazy, to life. 

30 Days of Animation is designed for creative play using Apple Keynote's animation features. From Magic Move to Line Animate to Paths and more, Keynote is the perfect animation playground. Each slide contains a prompt to ignite your thinking, and the Keynote deck is organized to progress in complexity, encouraging you to grow your animation skills. There are a few animation examples on the last slides to ignite your thinking. Designed for K-12 students to develop the future-proof skills of creativity, complex problem-solving, and growth mindset.
