Animated Sketch Notes How To: 2 Video Approaches

Sketchnoting is both challenging and rewarding.  The final product is rewarding for both the creator and the audience as the process of creating forces the learner to refine, reflect and formulate their thinking in a visual medium.  The audience has access to a well formulated visual that allows them to quickly access the ideas in a way that could otherwise not be possible.  In an effort to continue to push the capacity of 1:1 devices, I have recently been exploring how to turn sketchnotes into not only a static visual product, but a video as well.

I recently noticed a tweet from +Sylvia Duckworth:


Here is the video that Sylvia was referring to in her tweet, an outstanding video created by @MsVictoriaOlson for her #ADE2015 submission. 



Victoria's video is outstanding and I was especially drawn to her process of using Paper53 to create animated visuals that supplement the live video excerpts.  In an effort to make this process accessible to both teachers and students who are creating in 1:1 iPad classrooms, I created the video overview below that outlines my process for creating this style video.


Approach 1: Animate Static Images from Paper53

Tools:
iPad
Paper53
Explain Everything
iMovie (optional)

Approach 2: Animate Static Images with Video

This process involves layering the animated Paper53 drawings from the first approach on top of live or virtual video by using Green Screen by Doink.  The video below outlines the creation process.

Tools: 
iPad
Paper53
Explain Everything
DoInk Green Screen
Tellagami (Optional)
iMovie

Bonus Step: Adobe Voice is a great option to create short animated images that export to the camera roll.  Simply modify the background to a chroma key green color, animate the image & use in the process outlined below.
