26 Ways to Use Comics in the Classroom and 5 Free Tools for Creating Comics One of the most popular posts that I've published on Free Technology for Teachers is a list of ten free tools for creating comics online. I wrote that post three years ago. Since then some of the tools have gone offline or started charging users. So I think it's time to share a new list. Here are five free tools for creating comics online. Comic Master is a free tool designed for students to use to create comics in the "graphic novel style" that is popular with a lot of kids in the ten to fourteen years old age range. Make Beliefs is a free comic strip creation tool that provides students with a variety of templates, characters, and prompts for building their own comic strips. Chogger is a free comic strip creation tool that offers a good selection of editing tools. Marvel Kids invites kids to create their own super hero comic strips and comic books. Witty Comics provides a simple platform that students can use to create two character dialogues.

NIVÅANPASSAT PÅ ENGELSKA – Patricia Diaz Här tänkte jag försöka samla specifika digitala resurser som kan användas i engelskundervisningen i de grupper där man har lite extra behov av att förse eleverna med mer individanpassade övningar på olika nivåer. Den här sidan är alltså ett komplement till den ”stora” länksamlingen för engelska som du hittar i menyraden under ”Länksamlingar” högst upp på den här sidan. Där hittar du också en länksamling över digitala verktyg. Gissar att det är verkligheten för många och att många av er har massor av bra tips att dela med er av. Nyheter från den engelskspråkiga världen presenteras på lätt engelska. Med Readtheory kan man arbeta med läsförståelse på den nivå där man befinner sig. Det första som händer när man loggar in på Readtheory (med inloggningsuppgifter som läraren förser en med) är att man gör ett så kallat ”pretest” – en slags diagnos för placeras på rätt nivå i systemet. Readtheory är ett bra komplement till den övriga undervisningen. Newsela – en (snygg!)
