Revisiting comic creation

May 24, 2013


One of the early posts on this blog was Creating seriously good comics online, a review of the comic-creation site Pixton. To refresh my memory, I went back to the site the other day and created the new comic shown above.

Developing an idea within the confines of a comic is more challenging than it might seem. Explaining or illustrating a concept concisely in three or six panels is one way to have students demonstrate their understanding.

Pixton is easy to use and the free version does a great deal. More serious cartoonists can upgrade to Pixton+ for as little as $5 per month.

    Teachers! Just found this neat tool called Pixton (described here in this blog post from Nspired2), where students can create their own comic to illustrate and demonstrate their understanding of course concepts. Free trials and very inexpensive teacher access. If you decide to experiment with it, please let me know! We’d like to offer some support and perhaps share your experience with other faculty.
