Educomics European Union project, using digital comics in education
- Educomics http://www.educomics.org/ is an European Union Comenius education project under the Life Long Learning Programme. It will show educators how online and offline digital comics can be used in the classroom to enhance learning, engage and motivate students, and use technology in a practical and effective way.
The project will create training material for teachers and organise workshops for teachers. Attending teachers will learn how to apply strategies and lesson plans in their schools using digital comics.
You can get involved with Educomics during the course of the project, by downloading the Comiclab application that will allow you to make web comic books. The Comiclab applicationcan be downloaded from http://www.itisart.com.gr/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=66&Itemid=68&lang=en . You can use it in your school. We would be very interested in hearing about the results and how you used web comic books, please let us know at the address below.
If you would like further information please write to us.
