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.
For more on the study, check out the latest issue of School Library Monthly and this Science Daily article.
