Three Free Webinar Recordings About Using Comics in the Classroom

Update February 2015 - Some of the recordings have been taken down as they covered features that have changed since the initial recording was created.

This year I've hosted a handful of free webinars about using comics in the classroom. The three webinar recordings and slideshows embedded below provide a variety of ideas and directions for using comics created on Storyboard That in your classroom. Some of my favorite uses of comics include using them as story prompts, having students create them to tell personal stories, and to illustrate key ideas in a book as an alternative to writing a traditional book report.

Creating a storyboard can be a good way to organize a story and plan a video project. As Rebecca Ray shares in the slides below, creating storyboards can also be a good way to deconstruct and analyze a story.
