Engage & Inspire: Comics in the Classroom
Wednesday, January 31, 2018 12:00:00 AM UTC - 01:30:00 AM UTC
Looking for an easy way to infuse visual literacy in your instruction? Try using comics in the classroom.
Visual literacy is quickly becoming a "must-have" skill. Infusing comics in your instruction can help students easily learn and practice these skills. In this workshop, you will learn to help students create comics that both show their visual literacy skills and demonstrate comprehension of the content they are learning. This session is for teachers at ALL technology comfort levels.** OK2Ask are hands-on exploratory workshops, not sit & gets. We highly recommend that you attend using a computer with an updated browser (Chrome or Edge). Those attending on mobile devices may not be able to fully participate and therefore may not receive a certificate. You are welcome to join us on a mobile device, but this may jeopardize your ability to receive CEUs. As a result of this session teachers will: 1. Learn to use comics to teach visual literacy strategies; 2. Explore tools to create Comics; and 3. Discuss assessment strategies for the use of comics in the classroom.
