Digital animation inspires students. It motivates them to be creative and make meaningful connections across all subjects. It is an engaging, fun, and powerful tool that augments students' understanding and achievement of any common core subject. The results at schools that implement animation, like Bluffton Elementary (South Carolina), are impressive and it is the award-winning Toon Boom Animation software platform that enabled it to happen.
