3 eLearning. 3 degrees Enriching my own direct interaction with learners Supporting teachers and learners in their teaching and learning Very broad unsupported use The 3 types of animation interaction we’ve been addressing

4 Very broad unsupported use 50+ countries 70,000+ views

5 Enriching direct interaction with learners Supporting teaching and learning

6 Benefits of using vase animations in class: Improved attention to and understanding of artefacts Animation linked to improved recall Accessible route into discussions Improved mood: improved learning

7 Enriching direct interaction with learners

8 Creative interaction: e.g. storyboarding, character creation, drawing, writing dialogue, etc Illustrative thematic use: i.e playing animations as accompaniments for talks and discussions about topics such as the Olympics, myth, Troy, Aphrodite, athletics, chariots, combat, etc

9 Existing Topics in animations on the Panoply website: Myth: Clash of the Dicers, Pandora, Heracles, Pelops, Medusa, Amazon, Persephone and the Sirens, Eros and Aphrodite Athletics and Sports: The Cheat, Runners, Love of Honour, Dance Off, Pelops Troy/Homer: Clash of the Dicers, Amazon Warfare: Hoplites! trailer, Well-Wishers, Combat, Amazon, Clash of the Dicers Monsters: Plant Food, Sirens, Heracles, Medusa Horses/Chariots: The Cheat, Amazon, Pelops Women: Pandora, Medusa, Amazon, Sirens, Eros and Aphrodite, Well- Wishers, Plant Food, Love of Honour Citizenship: Love of Honour (sport and symposium), Well-Wishers (warfare, family) Red Figure vases: Pandora, Eros and Aphrodite, Well-Wishers, Plant Food, Love of Honour Black figure vases: Persephone and the Sirens, Clash of the Dicers, Heracles, The Cheat, Runners, Dance Off

10 Creative interaction based around animations has been particularly strong in projects at the Ure Museum (see org.uk/ure- discovery.html# ) org.uk/ure- discovery.html#

11 vase handling session at the Ure Museum for pupils from an arts academy

12 Blank example storyboard. Storyboarding involves creating a story and breaking it down into its vital elements using visual markers and minimal notation. Create stories based on scenes on ancient vases.

13

14 ‘Chariot 2 trips over cup and slows down. Chariot one reappears.’

15 The University of Nottingham demonstrated the academic benefits of storyboarding as part of a project on alternative assessments for undergraduates (project page at learning/modules/index.aspx )

16 Learning through Storyboarding Outcome-orientated artefact interpretation Motivated, detailed focus Characterisation Story development Creative engagement

17 Later this year, Panoply will be holding workshops with MA students at University College Dublin’s Classical Museum. The students will develop an interpretation project leading to the creation of a new animation for the museum. The project will strengthen the students’ understanding of interpretation and public engagement.

19 Panoply’s latest project is Every Soldier has a Story. The project features: An animation, Hoplites! Greeks at War, being made now! Webpage Activity Sheets (downloadable from project webpage) Public workshops Short film made from public activities Exhibition at the Ure Museum Animation launch event at the Ure Museum, 17 th October Launch will feature the animation, with live music from ancient theatre specialists Thiasos, a showing of the short film, exhibition of public contributions and artworks, and a reception.

29 Supporting teachers and learners in their teaching and learning

30 Supporting teachers and learners in their teaching and learning: Learners watching the animations in museums

31 The animations created in the Ure Discovery project (www.panoply.org.uk/ure-discovery.html# ), were built into a museum trail. Visitors could take the animations around the museum at their own pace, bringing them to the vases they were made from, with additional access to database entries on the vases and a vase-based computer gamewww.panoply.org.uk/ure-discovery.html#

32 Clash of the Dicers Clash of the Dicers will be featuring in an exhibition in Switzerland called Veni, Vidi, Ludique.

37 Panoply is developing a series of educational resources made from four vases housed in the British Museum. These four vases are superb pieces all on the UK national curriculum. The animations made from these vases will be joined by information on the vases and their subjects, and a greater integration of animation, learning resources, and interactives
