Students are just going to love this Web 2.0 resource! Comiqs lets users create and share their own comics, which can be created by using your own photos, photos from Comiqs’ photo library, or photos from the internet and then adding text. There is also a privacy option when saving completed comics, so it is ideal for schools. Comics can be published publicly, just for friends or only for you to see.
Students could use Comiqs to create their own stories, but also for school work such as
- How a science experiment was conducted
- A book review
- A review of a school production
- How to apply a mathematical formula
- Explain the rules of a sport
- And many other ideas
In fact, when Google launched their new web browser, Google Chrome, they produced a comic to show people how it worked.
Here is a short example of what can be created in a few minutes. This example was achieved using the Comiqs photo gallery. Comiqs could also be a good holiday boredom buster for the kids.
