Engagment using Comic Life

Hi again all fellow bloggers,

I just want to share with you a quick overview of an ICT tool I tried. Overall I feel this was a very simple and easy tool that would be helpful in introducing a very fun, engaging and interactive way for students to document learning activities achieved both in class and off school trips (camps). As mentioned this tool is very user friendly which suits all ages, and the only limitations of what you can do comes down to the users imagination.

I put together a quick comic strip of a trip I took to Bells Beach. Primary school students could use this tool to put together a story board of a group assignment to cover their learning journey from start to finish. Even though this tool may be more focused towards younger students, secondary teachers could use this simple software to help engage those students who find working with visual media more appealing and beneficial to completing a particular classroom task.

I recommend giving it a go!

  1. It looks to be very cold down at Bells. What a great idea and tool this could be. I am with a prep class and we are about to fly to England once our passports are complete. The airport is done, the plane is ready. We have even looked at what we could see on our travels. This could all be doccumented and the students could be totally engaged. Thanks for inspiring me to look onto the site. I must admit that I am feeling a little overwhelmed with all these new tools, sites and downloads. Anyway thanks again and your blogg looks fantastic.

  2. Hi Jim,

    This technology has some real possibilities with digital story telling which would fit nicely with authentic learning.



  3. Hi Jim, I was only talking about this comic thing yesterday with some of my colleagues and how it would and could be used in the classroom, and one of them suggested to check your blog out... great idea

    I love this tool and I think most students would love it too. I'm definitely going to give it a go.
    Your blog is rolling out nicely- I'm procrastinating on mine!
