[Excerpt]: "I've always loved using comics in the classroom, and now it's become even more fun with the possibility to add audio to my comics strips. http://www.pixton.com/
This was my first trial with the aim to welcome my students to our EDMODO group. After creating your comic strip you can publish it on a website, like I'm doing right now, or by clicking on the Edmodo icon, this way it's automatically attached to your message to an edmodo group of your choice.
To listen to the recordings, hover the mouse over the SPEECH BUBBLES and click on the PLAY button."
We worked once with one of our classes using Pixton, and it really enriched the experience. One of my students started a story and then another one would come and write the next "chapter" and add a new character. It was language oriented (they had to write in Portuguese) and a nice experience for those who love to use technology for a different kind of assignment.
I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.
It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.
If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.
The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.
It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.
