Text Animation

I'm always looking for new ways to engage students. What do you think of this?
Wizard Animation

Does this have possibilities?

Some of my thoughts:

1. To get a sense of a student's keyboard familiarity as part of my assessment. They can type their name, or the alphabet or....whatever. You watch how they access the keyboard. And they watch how their text is animated!

2. Add visual text effects to the class blog.

3. Makes learning fun - have your students come up with ideas!

(I used another animation from Fodey a few months ago. Check it out for additional animations.)

Here's another example, to create a brief newspaper story. It is saved as an image and can be inserted anywhere.
