Web 2.0 Wednesday: Make a Comic

Web20wednesday300x79_2 One of the newest things on the learning landscape, I've noticed, is the use of comics. Dan Pink's career guide, "The Adventures of Johnny Bunko," is one example, and I've also seen some comics designed to teach you things like physics and chemistry. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to devote this week's Web 2.0 Wednesday to making a comic.

You can use any topic you like, although something related to learning would be nice. If you have artistic skills, you can blow us away by actually drawing your comic and then scanning it for the rest of us. However to get the full Web 2.0 experience, try one of these comic generators:

Note--I haven't tried any of these out, so can't vouch for which is easier, etc.

I used Toondo to create a cartoon a while back. See it at http://bookminder.blogspot.com/2007/07/toondo.html It was easy to use.

Don't forget bitstrips.com, a very easy to use - but powerful - comic strip generator unveiled at SXSW. I can't vouch for the others, though I'll be checking them out shortly.

I love comics. In the classroom, in the home, etc. I think they are very unique creative artform, so I am glad that folks may try it out here.
I have been developing my own comic (and just got word that it will be published in the local regional newspaper's online version soon).
It pokes fun at education, the digital divide, and kids and adults as they deal with technology (right up our alley, I hope).


Take care

This is great! I am in therapy making comics of my life. This is a great learning tool and really fun!


I love using comics in my personal blog as well as in my classroom blog. I especially like using http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/Comix/.
Here's an example of how I've used it on my site - http://www.teachersatrisk.com/2008/08/06/a-positive-attittude-is-key-to-maintaining-a-positive-classroom-climate/.
