Educomics http://www.educomics.org/ is a European Union Comenius education project under the LifeLong Learning Program. It has built sets of resource materials for teachers based on research and piloting in EU schools, so that teachers will have clear examples and guides to use digital comics in their teaching practice.
Digital comics in the classroom have been clearly seen to enhance learning to engage and motivate students. For teachers it allows them to use, a simple, technology in a practical and effective way.
You can find open access, resources and lesson plans about the educational use of comics on the project website, including Lesson Plans, Materials and Tools
I would be very grateful if you could tell me about your use with your students. You can write back with your own comments or use the template downloadable from the website http://www.educomics.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=55
By trying comics you can add to our knowledge of how digital comics can be used as effective, motivational tools in the classroom and add to the resources we will make available to teachers.
