Why develop this piece of support for staff? During the development of the experiences and outcomes we included the opportunity to explore the use of animation at all levels within and across the curriculum

Support need identified through the UoG report Confirmed through own engagements I enjoy taking photographs or recording sound and images to represent my experiences and the world around me. TCH 0-04b I can create , capture and manipulate sounds, text and images to communicate experiences, ideas and information in creative and engaging ways. TCH 1-04b / TCH 2-04b I enhance my learning by applying my ICT skills in different learning contexts across the curriculum . TCH 3-04a Using appropriate software, I can work individually or collaboratively to design and implement a game, animation or other application. TCH 3-09a I can create graphics and animations using appropriate software which utilise my skills and knowledge of the application. TCH 4-09b Addressed in subsequent action plan ‘ CPD for staff in key aspects of ICT to support children and enable staff to spot appropriate areas where technology can be applied.’ UoG comment ‘ Animations should be included at first and second levels. Progression from first to fourth levels should be stop frame animation, in between animation and 3D animation.’ UoG comment from the Scottish ICT Development group i Opportunities within the experiences and outcomes
