Many of my friends and colleagues are using a new site called Bitstrips to create personalized comics. While most of us are seeing these on Facebook which most folks don't see as an educational forum, there is also some educational value to having students create comics that resember themselves and using short captions to explain what they are learning. How fun would this be! Bitstrips for Education is the cleaned up version. There are also apps for the IPhone and Android devices if you would rather use those to create your masterpieces. This cartoon that seen with this post is a colleague of mine. I loved his comic so much that I thought I would post it here.
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
