Comic Creator

The organizers focus on the key elements of comic strips by allowing students to choose backgrounds, characters, and props, as well as to compose related dialogue (shown at left). This versatile tool can be used by students from kindergarten through high school, for purposes ranging from learning to write dialogue to an in-depth study of a formerly neglected genre. The tool is easy to use, made even easier with the Comic Strip Planning Sheet, a printable PDF that comic creators can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final comics. After completing their comic, students have the ability to print out and illustrate their final versions for feedback and assessment.

Using iMovie in the Elementary Classroom: Part 1

By John Dewey Using iMovie maker can open many doors in the classroom for students to use their 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking along with using technology. This week I am going to show you one way how you can use iMovie in your classroom. Using the green screen feature is easy and makes learning a little more fun. For years in the classroom we have had the students doing Readers Theater, making their own skits or commercials etc; well now they can do this in front of a green screen and bring their work more to life. Step 1: Shoot the video of the students doing their skit, play commercial etc. Step 2: Plug in your camera, if it is a flip, put it into the USB drive. iMovie will open up and ask you if you would like to import the video, click import.

Step 3: Once you imported the video it will be seen in the bottom portion of iMovie. That is it! Like this:

CogDogRoo - StoryTools

50+ Ways is no longer being updated here but over at the new site for 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story-- It has more organizational features and includes ways for you to add content to the site once you join the new wiki. Below you will find 50+ web tools you can use to create your own web-based story. Again, the mission is not to review or try every single one (that would be madness, I know), but pick one that sounds interesting and see if you can produce something. I have used each tool to produce an example of the original Dominoe story, plus links are provided, where available, to examples by other people.
