PikiKids - Kids Create Comics

PikiKids is a new website on which students can create comic strips. PikiKids provides a variety of layouts to which students can upload images then edit the images or add text bubbles and titles. The comics that students create can be embedded into a blog or website as well as be shared via email. PikiKids is free to use, but it is a for profit website as it offers options for buying tee-shirts or mugs with user-created comics.


Applications for Education
PikiKids is a free alternative to proprietary comic strip builders. The embed code provided with each comic strip could be used to create a gallery of student work on a blog or wiki page.
