How I Use It
I used this lesson with 4th grade students to assess their understanding of CyberBullying when we held our Digital Citizenship week at our school. Students were asked to create a 3 or 4-panel comic that demonstrated how they could respond to a cyberbully that would result in a positive outcome. Students loved the many options for characters and backgrounds that this free site offered.
My Take
There are many tools available for kids to write and create their own Comic Books. This website has widespread appeal and is easy to use. Students can quickly design a simple storyboard and publish within minutes.
