In a previous post I discussed the importance of comic strips in education and provided one example of an easy tool students can teachers can use to create their own comic strips. In today's post, I am sharing with you this awesome application that can be used with students to create 3D  cartoons. Toontastic 3D from Google is an Android and iOS app that  students can use to draw and animate their owns cartoons. "It’s as easy as play. Just move your characters around onscreen, tell your story, and Toontastic records your voice and animations and stores it on your device as a 3D video."


Using 3D drawing tools students can create characters and customize existing characters and settings. They can also add their faces to their characters and give their cartoons a personal touch. Each cartoon can  embed up to six scenes. Once their cartoons are ready they can save them on their device or to their photo library. Toontastic 3D is free to use and does not require any  registration. Better yet, the app works offline with the exception of the 'Idea lab' feature which is only accessible through Internet connection.

As for its use in education, Toontastic 3D can be used for various educational purposes. For instance, it can be used in digital storytelling projects, in writing book reviews, in reports writing, biographies, historical re-enactments, vocabulary practice, enhance communication skills and many more.
