Comic Book Classroom
What’s the best way to get kids to creatively think through a story and then write it? Make them think they’re creating a comic book. And, that’s exactly what the appropriately named Kblam! app does. Kids start with an idea and a slew of images that they can arrange, add speech bubbles and arrange into a coherent narrative. There are several layouts, caption styles and lots of comic book effects available to use. When done it can be shared directly or via a social network. The app costs 99 cents and works with everything from a simple strip to a full comic book. It can be used on iPhones, iPads and recent iPods Touch models that have iOS 6 or newer but not Android systems.
