Using "Comic Life" by Plasq

The Middle Primary Class at ISOCS spent most of a happy day yesterday using Comic Life - a software program by Plasq - to retell the story of their trip to Technorama in Winterthur.  They had chosen the pictures they wanted to use from our pictures from the Flickr set, and drafted their writing beforehand, so when we opened the computers, the assembly process was pretty straight forward. You can read about the day on their class blog.

There were the usual confusions over saving, and exporting the finished pages as images.  Some of the students had used the program before, and some were new to it. Although it's fairly user-friendly, there are details and fine points that take a bit of practice to master.  We plan to use it again soon so we can master it.

Here are the pages we made (You can see them on Flickr, too):
