Boinx Software Goes to the Head of the Class
Award-winning Mac applications build a wonderland of opportunities
inside the classroom; BoinxTV and iStopMotion help mold creative minds
of the future

Puchheim, Germany – June 22, 2010 – Boinx Software , a multi-award
winning software developer for the Mac platform, has become a critical
teaching aide in educational spaces, where technology-rich
environments have become the norm. Receiving high marks, BoinxTVand
iStopMotion are captivating educators and students alike with fun and
easy-to-use technology for delivering creative classroom lessons using
visually interesting and highly engaging digital media. “In our
classrooms, we strive to make education and learning as imaginative
and fun as possible. We see this same approach in Boinx Software, and
are thrilled to utilize its products to enhance the creative
imaginations of each and every child that walks through our doors,”
comments Valerie Becker, West Tisbury School. “iStopMotion provides
children with a unique tool to become their very own movie maker,
creating short animations just like they see on the big screen. The
sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that spreads across a
child’s face after using iStopMotion is magnificent. Its
instantaneous results and forgiving nature boosts confidence levels,
allowing students to present their finished work in mere minutes… and
always go back later to fix mistakes or add to their projects. The
West Tisbury School is proud to offer our kids the opportunity to
create and stretch their imaginations with Boinx Software.”

Boinx’s iStopMotion introduces students to the basic concepts of
animation and filmmaking, while teaching invaluable skills such as
teamwork, structural planning and analytical thinking. Stop Motion
Animation is easy to use and motivates students to learn to work in
groups, be creative, research information, create sound and text, and
share their results with friends and family. The unique time-lapse
recording feature is well suited for scientific curriculums, where it
helps to make slow processes more visible to students. iStopMotion can
even be used for learning math by creating animations that demonstrate
the concepts of fractions or to solve complex equations.

With higher learning retention rates, classrooms all over the country
are adding Boinx Software as part of its cross-curriculum, bringing a
new, fresh method of creative learning and educational delivery. “My
6th grade class has been using iStopMotion for the past five years,
and it never fails to impress both myself as well as my students,”
says George Rota, Glen Lake Elementary School. “Students work
together in small groups to create fantastic animations and learn the
ins-and-outs of teamwork, basic filmmaking and problem solving skills.
Every year, my students’ faces light up when it comes time for the
iStopMotion project. I recently acquired BoinxTV and am sure that the
students will come to love its cool production qualities just as much
as iStopMotion. I cannot thank Boinx Software enough for creating such
powerful products for education – bravo!”

BoinxTV, the ‘studio in a box’ solution, lets educators and
students to create and broadcast their own videos and documentaries as
well as broadcast live events such as lectures, important extra-
curricular activities like sporting events and performances with
special effects and school branding. The hands-on experience provides
students with an invaluable outlet for expressing their point of view
and collaborating with their peers.

“Boinx Software products, fit for both the adventurous adolescent and
the ‘young at heart’ professional, are strongly rooted in
education, providing users of all ages with a platform for creative
expression,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. “BoinxTV
and iStopMotion help students to focus their creative energies toward
positive, educational activities. Students have so much fun using
these products and creating their own school TV channels and shows for
their peers, as well as animated films, that they forget they are
actually learning valuable skills for the future. Our products
initiate real world situations, allowing students to experience what
it might be like in a real TV studio, or a real creative house, and
how to work together as a team. At Boinx, we are thrilled to be a part
of the educational trends that will continue shaping the creative
community for years to come.” For more information on Boinx Software
