‘Ohana A’o Digital Storytelling Workshop
Share interactive ‘ohana engagement activities and ‘Olelo No‘eau (Hawaiian wise sayings) that guide makua (parents) to be nurturing role models exhibiting ahonui (patience), aloha (love) and hō‘ihi (respect) for each child. In addition to experiencing several techniques & strategies for culturally responsive learning environments, the participant will acquire the skills to produce animated videos with an iPad.
During this Global pandemic, we have had to rely on conference calls, visiting websites, and online classes to connect with family and others. Being able to produce short videos has become a valuable communication skill. Short video messages are becoming more prevalent in education and employment settings and can be used in a variety of settings: sharing knowledge and ideas (mana’o), starting a digital portfolio, promoting an entrepreneurial endeavor or adding to a digital resume.
Through this session, participants will learn introduction to animation with iPads and the easy-to-use app Animate Anything !
NOTE: For full session participation, access to an iPad with Animate Anything (free) installed is needed. This is in addition to another device that is streaming the Conference.
