HB Animation Studio Kit
“Students as producers” can be found in everything from gardening to media production, game design and programming. It provides engaging opportunities to teach digital literacy, citizenship and creator’s rights.¹
Teaching kids multimedia skills develops their critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration capabilities and demystifies media and IT technologies.
This is where HB Animation Studio Kit from HamiltonBuhl comes in.
