As a fundamentally visual medium comics provide scaffolding for students, bringing together visual and text based learning. Students can create a one page comic illustrating a concept or a more complex multipage storyline in Comic Life. Incorporating photos and drawings to their narratives is a fun way for students to cement narrative arcs, demonstrate understanding and be creative!
Comic Life is play that works
Comics are great intermediate step to more complex concepts, and creating comics in Comic Life is so easy it feels like a game! Students can use templates to get started and are free to create using their own images. Play is important to education, and Comic Life is a flexible tool that can fit into nearly any lesson plan.
If at first you don’t succeed, easily try, try again
Comic Life’s easy-to-use interface means kids can “try on” words, language, or stories, see how they work, and then easily change or fine tune them. Like “sandboxing” in the computer world, it means kids can experiment without setting anything in stone, see results in real time, and then improve what they’ve created immediately. Once students have a final version of their comic it is easy to share using our export options: PDF, images, printing and much more!
