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. 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.
MSPhysics 0.9.5 (31 October 2016) • sketchUcation • 1 MSPhysicsMSPhysics is a real-time physics simulation plugin for SketchUp, similar to SketchyPhysics. Unlike SketchyPhysics, MSPhsyics is written completely from scratch, integrating the latest NewtonDynamics physics SDK. The difference between the two is that MSPhysics is significantly faster, has a more advanced scripting API, and comes with a reliable Replay animation tool, which allows recording simulation and exporting to SkIndigo, KerkyThea, and a sequence of images. Another difference between MSPhysics and SketchyPhysics is having advantage over user input. In SketchyPhysics there was a struggle in creating keyboard and mouse controlled games. Whenever simulation would run, there had to be an active control panel window that would redirect user input, that is to prevent the interference of SketchUp's keyboard and mouse shortcuts. At the moment, the project is under development. Huge credit goes to Julio Jerez for writing the NewtonDynamics physics engine.
