How I Use It
I had students use this product to create a 3-4 frame comic strip explaining a math or science topic. Students enjoy creating the comics on the site (especially on their iPads--school purchased). Use this site to find lesson plan options for Make Beliefs Comix http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/How-to-Play/Educators/
My Take
Great app for students to be creative in your classroom. You may want to have them explain a topic, process, or problem using comics. The only problem I have with the site is you can't save your work. Although I may be mistaken about this problem. The nice part is students can save the image to their device and/or e-mail it to you. My students enjoyed the simplicity of the program and the ability to be creative with math or science.
