The craftiness of educators blows my mind sometimes. I mean, really, y’all are amazing.
In this post I’d like to highlight some of the super crafty action from the folks over at Davyhulme Primary School who have been creating some amazing interactive stories with Comic Life and other apps.
The students worked with Comic Life for iOS to build the visual part of their stories and then filled the speech balloons with brief video clips, allowing the students to put themselves in the comics. Take a look at their project, and notice how they layered photos in Comic Life to put student’s in different worlds!
Interactive Traditional Tale Comics
Today class 2A had a fun filled morning, creating some fantastic interactive comics. The class has this week been focusing on Traditional Tales, as well as looking at punctuating direct speech.
To help them develop this further, the children created a comic strip of a traditional tale, adding speech bubbles and by using the iPad were able to fill the speech bubbles with videos of the children acting as the characters. This really helped develop the children’s understanding of how to describe the reporting clause. They were able to see how everything the character says including any punctuation, goes inside the speech bubble, therefore inside the speech marks. It also showed how well the children understood the story if they could act in character.
