2017 EDU: Educational cartoons for kids: Could you make cartoons in a virtual world?

Educational cartoons for kids.   Could you make cartoons in a virtual world?Of course you could.  Would it offer any advantages?  A virtual world is a graphic engine.  It can produce animated graphics sequences with simple video capture.  Lots of scenery content is available for sale.  You can hire people to make content for you: avatars, objects, scenery.  You can rehearse the cartoon as much as you want.  Maybe it would cut the production cost to a price educators can afford.Watch on YouTube-Educational Cartoons for kidsThe Best Educational Cartoon TV Shows for KidsA visit to Mobius Grid and a talk with Mobius avatarsMobius Grid. A friendly group of Toons at the welcome areaMobius grid offers an cartoon-like environment.  And some avatars that look like Toons.  We know how to get mouth movements to fit the speech.Flying Saucers Return For still cartoons I need speech bubbles.  WigFlip.  If that is not enough, look here.The main thing you need is a set of educational objectives.And a script for the story.********************************************More after the break*************************************************Metaverse events, recent and upcomingAvatar Repertory Theater (ART) prepares a frightful Halloween show.Mal Burns: Inworld ReviewHypergrid Writer’s CommunityHYPERGRID EVENTSMetaverse Jobs; Job ListingsIMA locations3D web-worlds of the browser (G+ community)Selby’s daily news collection:  Virtual worlds are real   Virtual Outworlding news collection Events on the Hypergrid: HYPEventsDestination guide: OpenSimWorldHyperica, Directory of Opensimulator hypergrid destinationsWELCOME TO SEANCHAI LIBRARIESEntertainment on the Hypergrid, a G+ communityHypergrid DestinationsHypergrid-related articles in this blog********************* Watch on YouTubeKid’s 3D Construc­tion Cartoon : Build a Crawler Excav­ator I Learn­ing Construc­tion Vehicles for KidsIf I were writing the story… I would write a plot that requires the protagonist to meet the educational objectives.And offers the opportunity for the hero to learn and practice the objectives.Then I would ask the learner to guide the hero in the quest.Good guidance would demonstrate successful learning.Each choice point would require at least 2 outcome clips.  Clip 1 would show success and the hero would thank the learner.  Perhaps the hero would verbally summarize the discovery and store it in inventory.Clip 2 would show failure, express disappointment (but not blame the learner).Clip 2 would show the hero responding to failure by seeking more information.The resulting information would be a clue for the learner.Benefits of a virtual world for thisOnce the set is built,  many stories can be be produced with only screen capture.In OpenSim, additional bit players can be provided as NPCs.For still cartoons or story boards, you only need image capture and speech bubbles.You could add speech bubbles with WigFlip and The Gimp.You can find experienced writers who will provide some help.For Microlearning It should load quickly on a smart phone.Focus on a single objective.That could be done in 2 or 3 still panels.  1. Show relevant problem.2. Pick learning objective that solves problem.3. Show solution.**********************************************************************************LicenseOriginal text in this blog is CC By: unless specified public domainUse as you please with attribution: link to the original.All images without attribution in this blog are CC0: public domain.*********************************My web office: Cybalounge.Don’t register — enter as guest.  If you don’t see me:Click the pointed pushpin on the bottom line See if I am in Selby’s room.My office times:  Weekdays: 12: -12:30 Central time  (US) Maybe weekends, too.  Other times by appointment. Thinkerer Melville in Second Life, Selby Evans in KitelyA web page you can walk intoTry a browser-based virtual worldCybalounge is ready for virtual worlders to use: Tutorials and suggestionsEntertainment in virtual worldsMal Burns: Inworld ReviewEntertainment on the HypergridOpensim AAM Virtual PerformersHYPERGRID EVENTSThe web show: a magazine from the virtual worldsArt of the Artists: [email protected] Machinima Challenge (L$350,000 Prize Pool) Create a film with a work of art.OpenSimWorkingRadioStreams (OSWRS).
