Comics add interest to communicating with students

I recently attended a conference session entitled: “Dennis the Menace and Spiderman Challenge Socrates.” The discussion talked about how to deliver content, announcements, lessons that use graphic comic strips to add interest to the words. I must say, I was intrigued with how interesting it was, and how easy it was to create, with the many free (or inexpensive) software solutions. Some are web based. I easily created a strip to add to my next day presentation, to add some humor and color to the otherwise dry presentation. Check these resources out, if you have some free time.

Comic Book Creator 2 was recommended by presenter Joan van Duzer of Humboldt State University. She created a tutorial and example for doing comic-related delivery. Take a look at her work to see what can be done.
