Toontastic 3D Enables Students To Create Their Own 3D Cartoons

In a previous post, I discussed the importance of cartoons in education and provided an example of an easy tool students and teachers can use to create their own cartoons. In today’s post, I’m sharing with you this amazing application that allows students to turn their ideas into creative 3D cartoons.
Toontastic 3D, from Google, is an Android and iOS app that students can use to draw and animate their own cartoons. “It’s as easy as playing. Just move your characters around the screen, tell your story, and Toontastic will record your voice and animations and save it to your device as a 3D video.”

Using 3D drawing tools, students can create characters, customize existing characters, and change settings. They can also add their faces to their characters and give their cartoons a personal touch. Each cartoon can integrate up to six scenes. When their cartoons are ready, they can save them to their device or to their photo library.

Toontastic 3D is free to use and requires no registration. Even better, the app works offline except for the ‘Idea lab’ feature which is only available through internet connection.

In terms of educational use, Toontastic 3D can be used for various educational purposes. For example, it can be used in digital storytelling projects, to write book reviews, to write biographies, historical reenactments, vocabulary practice, to improve communication skills, and more.
