Very helpful Keynote, thank you! A super way for students to think about the actions of literary characters they read about. I think this would make a great alternate assessment.

Love this. I think students creating their own characters, help to build empathy and puts themselves in others shoes. I'm wondering if these can also be used for AR?!

Very cool! What kind of file are the animated characters? It looks like some kind of movie file with a transparent background.

You can create animations like this in Adobe Animate.
