Digital Storytelling With Comics

Digital Storytelling With Comics | Teaching English to Kids | Scoop.it

On Monday I published a short guide to digital storytelling with comics. This evening I gave a free webinar presentation based on that free guide. More than 200 people registered for the webinar in less than 48 hours. If you wanted to join and missed it, the recording of the webinar, sponsored by Storyboard That, is now available here and as embedded below.

Excellent guide about how comics can be used to create short stories or to storyboard a larger project. Links to free versions of related software too - StoryboardThat.com; WeVideo.com (for turning comic strips into movies) and WidBook.com (for creating multimedia ebooks - and it's also a collaborative writing platform).

This is worth checking out. I am always searching for new ways to reach my students.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, January 31, 2014 9:31 AM

This could be a very interesting program that could be used with students to review or retell what they have learned in a class.  We would love to teach this to your students and help them through their first project.  Any takers?

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:21 PM

Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students.

Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense.

iPad mobility means that students can move about taking photographs, recording audio, and shooting video, in any number of places. They can make multimedia stories, demonstrate how to solve math problems, create and simulate virtual experiences of virtually anything, and on and on. The skill of learning to edit media to enhance a project will be essential for the future. Active creativity and personalized learning are some of the main assets of any tablet.

How to learn to facilitate a classroom is all part of a new way of teaching.  With access to information so readily available it is easy to see why students need to learn from the cloud, and evaluate their research.
