Comic Life

This week at school the senior classes have been using an app called Comic Life.  The classes have used it to organise and present their knowledge as part of this term’s Unit of Inquiry. 

We decided to purchase the Comic Life app because it can be used by students at all year levels and in all subject areas.  It is only limited by imagination!  It is the most expensive app we have bought so far ($5.49) but we feel it is going to be worth it.

Here’s what two of our ICT Captains, Cam and Tyler, had to say about it:

Comic Life is good for making comics without paper.  You can add photos from the camera roll.  This means you can take a photo of yourself or take a screen shot and edit it.  Comic Life can be used in the classroom in many ways.  Children can make posters or comics on lots of topics including how to be healthy or how to clean your teeth or even about Comic Life. 

Comic Life is a good app for literacy because you can add text in boxes or speech bubbles.  There are really cool text types that you can do and backgrounds as well.  You can colour the background by pressing the little ‘i’ button at the top of the screen.  Headings can be changed and different fonts, sizes and colours selected. 

 

Have you used Comic Life? What for?

Do you like reading and/or writing comics? Why?

  2. I just want to say thanks to the Tech Team for putting together this blog. With so many apps to choose from it is especially helpful to us parents when deciding what to load onto our devices. I also like being able to get any other technology updates, hints and tips. I have just subscribed to the blog so will be looking forward to reading your posts!
