How To Utilize Smart Scenes In Class

By Emily Swartz

Find this and other great teacher resources in our Education Blog!

One of the newest features to be added to Storyboard That is Smart Scenes. Essentially, Smart Scenes enable the user to customize the scene in a variety of ways - from the weather to the time of day. Now, you can customize BOTH characters and scenes to make sure your storyboard is exactly how you want it.

Since this feature was released fairly recently, I wanted to highlight a few ways you can use Smart Scenes with your students! For those not familiar with Smart Scenes, here’s a quick breakdown - using storyboards, of course!


[Note: some examples show the 16x9 layout being used, but the traditional layout will work as well!]


First, drag and drop the scene into your cell. This example shows a city sidewalk scene, found in Scenes > Town.



Second, click the ‘Edit Scene’ button that appears in the dialogue box.

Then, this window will appear! Look at all of those options! Select the changes you wish to make, and click ‘Update Scene’



Here are 4 scenes you can make using the Smart Scene feature!




Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming of ideas on how to use Smart Scenes with your students!

Zlateh the Goat - Sequence

The family is devastated to lose Zlateh; they cry and say goodbye to her. On the way to the village, a massive snowstorm hits and Aaron loses his way. Aaron finds shelter in a haystack; he survives by milking and cuddling with Zlateh. Aaron and Zlateh have a stronger bond than ever and Aaron vows never to give her up. On the fourth day, Aaron makes his way back home; his family is delighted about their return, and never consider taking Zlateh to the butcher shop again.
