Xtranormal can be used at all grade levels for anything from learning to write a script and stage a play to creating re-enactments of historical events in conjunction with a history or civics class.
Choose from several show packs for characters and setting. Each pack offers several costumed characters and background scenes. Position the camera for closeups or panoramas. Characters can move, dance, change expression, and more. Script is typed in and character 'speaks' it with the chosen computer voice.
Best of all accounts are FREE. You do need to register with an email address. Movies can later be published on YouTube. For younger students, teachers can create an account with a simple username and password (which is all the students need for login).
Some characters and scenes require download of their program STATE, but that too is free.
