Comics This is a comic about the backfire effect. The first big expansion pack of Exploding Kittens is now shipping. It contains 20 game-changing cards, along with a human-sized cone of shame. I made a new thing. Next Page » All artwork and content on this site is Copyright © 2016 Matthew Inman. Make a Comic with Comics Head I first reviewed Comics Head in 2013. It’s a website and also an app our children can create a comic with. When I learnt that the latest update to the Comics Head app for iPad, version 3, had major new features, I decided to investigate. From the developer: - Unlimited Editable comics - 3500+ Themed Art Assets (Beach, Fruits, Vegetables, Kitchen, Zodiac symbols and more...) - A lot more templates. What I liked: I LOVE to find ways for kids to tell stories. I’ll show you what I mean: When I took the latest version of the app for a test drive, I kept bumping into features I could see would be valuable in an educational context.

Comics have had bad press, little of it deserved in my opinion. If you’re a long-time reader of The Book Chook, you’re probably aware of the fact I think comics are a great way to lure reluctant readers and writers into trying reading and writing. Here are some ideas on how to use that comic style (images and captions/speech bubbles) to present information. *Children for whom writing is a chore may find telling a story with captions or speech bubbles much more achievable. *When you’re looking for a way to give feedback to your local or school community on a special day or an excursion, the comic format is a succinct way to communicate with images and words. *With younger children, a collaborative creation of a report works well. *Kids are motivated to report on books they’ve read when they use a combination of images and words in the comic format. Kids can create comics with apps, too.

Un constructor online de historias medievales Si os gustan las historias medievales ilustradas, aquí tenéis una web que no dejaréis de usar durante mucho tiempo: Historic Tai Construction Kit. Se trata de un proyecto de código abierto que quiere hacer un homenaje al constructor de historias que existía en Flash hace muchos años. En él solo tenemos que ir eligiendo las figuras de ciudadanos, guerreros, edificios, monstruos y demás elementos para incluirlas en el pergamino virtual que tenemos como lienzo. A la derecha podemos encontrar una sección para alterar las variables de cada imagen incluida: tamaño, ángulo, posición, profundidad… solo tenemos que tener algo de paciencia para crear el efecto de perspectiva deseado configurando los tamaños de cada personaje. Es posible bajar una versión que no necesita conexión a Internet, y obtener el resultado en PNG, para imprimirlo con buena resolución, ponerlo en un marco y presumir de obra medieval en el medio del salón.
