Digital storytelling is not just about creating a book, comics and cartoons are fabulous form of storytelling. As if you have seen before I am big supporter of them. I grew up reading comics, I love graphic novels, and I am currently working on one myself, so to use comics and cartoons in the classroom is a great way for students to express themselves and tell a story.
I have created lists before on how to use cartoons in the classroom and I wanted to share some more with you.
