Pilot Use of Digital Educational Comics in Language Teaching
Vassilikopoulou, M.; Retalis, S.; Nezi, M.; Boloudakis, M.
Educational Media International, v48 n2 p115-126 2011
This paper presents a case study about the use of digital comics in teaching modern Greek in high schools (aged 12-13). The ultimate goal of the educational use of digital comics is to promote students' acquisition of language skills and to help them apply their imaginations and reuse their cultural experiences in creating multimodal comic-like digital stories. The core idea of this case study, which was conducted at a high school in Greece, was to provide the opportunity to students become authors of their own digital comic stories using an innovative authoring tool called ComicLab. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
