Bitstrips for Schools

Bitstrips for Schools lets students create and share comic books using online art and multimedia tools. Teachers register a classroom account at the site first, and then each student signs on under that account. The site is subscription-based, but they're offering a 14-day free trial for teachers to test the program. A basic online account for an entire class costs $87 for a year (that's less than $10 a month!). Teachers moderate the comics, which pass through Internet filters to prevent sharing of inappropriate material. If you're looking to teach reading, writing, and storytelling in a high-tech, innovative, and fun way, check out the site and see if it's for you.
