Stop motion animation is a medium that is used by Miriam to promote the development of literacy, numeracy and ict skills. By its very simplicity this programme is easily manipulated by young children and introduces them into the world of multimedia creation. The stop-motion animation Five Little Ducks Miriam created with her preschool pupils as an exercise in counting the numbers backwards was recognised as a MEDEA 2008 Highly Commended.
