I took part in an animation webinar recently. The girl, sadly I can't remember her name, mentioned that she really should be starting her projects by creating a storyboard, for example on Storyboardthat. I heard the name but I had no idea what she's taking about so I Googled it .... and this is how I fell in love with storyboardthat.com


Storyboard that is website which lets you create storyboards and comic strips. It's got loads of attractive graphics and an option of uploading your own pictures. It's really easy to use, it literally took me 10 minutes to work it out. It took even less time for my students to work it out. To show you just a couple of option available I took a short video of my computer screen. See for yourselves how brilliant it is:


From the moment I saw it and saw how easy it was to use, I knew I had to use it with my kids!! 馃槂 You know how in many course books there are certain dialogues introducing language functions that the kids need to study? Usually when I ask my students to write a dialogue they are apprehensive. When I asked them to turn the dialogue into a comic they couldn't get enough of it!! 馃挌馃挌馃挌 I'll show you two of my favourites.

I like this one, by Antosia, because of the work that went into all the details:


I like this one, by Orest, because of the comic effect 馃槀
