Stop Motion Studio is a filmmaking app that can be used across the content areas. Similar to the Lego movies you may have seen made by filmmakers on YouTube or claymation characters moving across the screen. In the classroom teachers are using this app to have students demonstrate their understanding of content in lots of subject areas.
This app combines still images to make a stop motion animation film. In the Social Studies classroom students can move figurines across the screen to show a historical event in action. In the Math classroom students can use virtual manipulatives to model the solution to a math problem.
Apple has created an iBook full of lesson ideas for teachers using Stop Motion Studio with their students. It includes activities for Science, Social Studies, and more.

Many web tools can help to support students as they expand their vocabulary, particularly students who benefit from audio and visual support. Combining traditional vocabulary practice with web tools is a great way to motivate students of any age — especially those who are more inclined to use web tools as part of their study routine.
