I posted this on my personal blog and wanted to share it with all my DEN friends as well.
It never fails, after I click publish something REALLY COOL comes up. Again, thanks to Tech Crunch for showing this off. As described on their website, “ToonDoo is a wacky way to get creative with comics. You can now create your own comic strips, share them or insert them in your blogs with just a few clicks and drag-n-drops!” While still working at my old school, Kay Teehan shared with me a comic strip making software that she’s used and shared with some of the teachers as an alternative way to make a digital story. I know that students can get bored if you are doing the SAME type of project OVER and OVER. This gives the teacher a viable alternative, or giving the student/groups a choice of what they want to create!
Being the Social Studies teacher that I am…I went ahead and created one based loosely on the Three R’s (reduce, reuse and recycle). This is what I came up with: My ToonDoo. Very neat if you ask me, and it was a VERY easy interface to navigate and follow. The interface is Flash based. So enjoy!
