I took a course this past spring that talked about various ways to communicate with students, especially in distance-learning scenarios. The course instructor encouraged us to find ways to creatively communicate ideas with others. One of my favorite modes of communication became virtual comics.
After being introduced to online comic creation, I started researching. There are many websites out there that are devoted to comic creations. My favorite, so far, is Pixton. “Pixton introduces the world to Click-n-Drag Comics™, a revolutionary new patented technology that gives anyone the power to create amazing comics on the web.” (About Pixton for Fun, http://www.pixton.com/company)
We are always looking for ways to engage our students and find a unique way to hook their interest. Well, comics may just be the way to do it! Just think of how tickled your students would be if they walked into your class and saw two horses sitting on a beach talking about quadratic formulas! That would hook their interest for sure!
