What Our Kids Can Learn With Vine app
Vine app is not just a social video app. Somehow, its 6 seconds duration limitation (or feature?) is perfect for our kids doing a short movie experiment.
What can they do in a very short 6 seconds video? Here are some examples on how our kids telling the story with 6 seconds video. They learn about mini storyboard & basic concept on visual storytelling.
"Where is Leia drawing? At the beach!"
"So many cars! Traffic jam!"
Stop motion & Animation
We all know Vine app is not a stop motion capturing app. But with its record-and-pause ability, our kids can learn how to make stop motion in easy & fun way. And with its short duration, they don't have to wait too long to see the stop-motion result.
"Danny the warrior duck."
"Driving a car. Oh no traffic jam!"
"The boat & the pirate."
Short movie with stop-motion
"Look! USS Enterprise from Star Trek!"
Problem is, Vine's age rating is 17+. Meands that I cannot install it in their restricted iDevices like iPod & iPad. And they cannot freely browsing other videos without their parents around.
