Xtranormal and the Rainy Afternoon

It’s a lovely rainy Sunday.  While my garden is getting a good steady soaking, I am enjoying an unhurried afternoon playing with Xtranormal.  This is a cartoon video creation tool located at http://www.xtranormal.com.   Users can create cartoon videos using a selection of backgrounds, characters, sound effects, and voices.  You can control the gestures of the characters as well as the camera angle.  This tool can be used for free, but if you want to publish or share your work, a paid subscription is necessary.  It costs $10 a month with the added cost of 10 cents per student per month.   It has great potential for projects in which students research a topic and then have their characters discuss or debate it.  Click on the link below for an example of an Xtranormal video.  In this short video two characters discuss the use of Twitter as a professional development tool.
