Biography Comics is a fascinating emerging technology. It is an app that would be great for teaching students about important, influential or significant people in our culture. This app presents biographies of significant people from our culture in comic book form with clear language and vivid pictures. In addition a great feature of Biography Comics is it allows for a number of activities to be utilized with it. For example, it includes activities for summarizing, visualizing, and vocabulary activities. One feature that I found truly exciting is that once students learn the technique and structure of this app they can create Biography Comics of their own for people in their lives such as parents, friends, family, etc.
This app could enhance the student’s learning environment in any course subject.
