Gif It Up – LTW April Showcase

25th April 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

This month’s Learning Technology Showcase is based on a Digital Literacy theme. Due to popular demand, we are happy to iterate one of the big hits from the Festival of Creative Learning, Gif It Up.
Explore the fun world of gifs with Gif It Up; learn how to make your own gifs from openly licensed and public domain, museum, library, and archival materials.  Using free and open online tools.
This workshop will guide you through the steps to create your very own gif using images and materials from University of Edinburgh museum, library, and archival materials. Over the course of three hours we will look at the variety of public domain and openly licensed materials on the web that are available for creative re-use, and discuss the ethical responsibilities we as creators have towards those materials.
Everyone will be provided with open materials and guided through the different steps available to alter, stitch together, add special effects, and turn these images into gifs.
Participate in open sharing and collaboration – gifs created on the day will be openly licensed and re-shared for further creativity and re-use by others.
Have a look at some of the fantastic gifs produced in previous Gif It Up workshops: https://en-gb.padlet.com/s_rhiann_farley/zjziwn9ljswv
