The award-winning HUE HD Pro camera has been bundled with HUE Animation stop motion software (for Windows) to create a multi-purpose home-schooling kit.
Designed specifically for teaching and learning, the HUE HD Pro visualiser is a versatile, Plug & Play 1080p camera which includes a built-in noise cancelling microphone and touch sensitive LED lights. It works with any application that supports a USB camera and connects seamlessly to your preferred video conferencing app (Zoom, MS Teams, Google Meet etc).
The kit can be used for homeschooling, online tutoring and video calls with family and friends. Lessons can be recorded for playback later and the camera can also be used for stop motion animation to reinforce learning on a specific topic or just for fun!
The camera and accompanying software makes it easy to upload and share work with teachers, tutors and other homeschooling friends. This allows you to build in opportunities for collaboration and interactive work. It can also help with scanning documents for record keeping and creating homeschool portfolios. It can be particularly helpful for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) offering the ability to record lessons for later revision and to enlarge text and objects which may be useful for the visually impaired.
Stop motion animation is a fun educational activity which encourages both creativity and imagination through the use of technology. It allows children to learn through balanced play and using the 21st century skills of creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.
Here are some free Activity Guides which teachers and parents can download at no cost, which guide them through the process of creating an animation, to learn about various topics such as The Water Cycle, Cycle of Seasons and Global Warming. HUE will be adding further activity guides during the coming months too so they will build up to be a really useful set of guides.
