Bubblr is an awesome online tool that can be used to create comic strips. You may search images on Flickr and insert word bubbles. I feel that this could be used across content areas and engage students in creating fun, informative comic strips about any topic. I utilized Bubblr to make a short strip about the "Pax Romana". I hope to use this tool in my Science class to help students better understand abstract concepts.
In English, students could use Bubblr to create short summaries about texts or chapters they have read. They could also create alternate endings. In Social Studies they could recreate certain time periods like I've done or discuss current events by making a comic strip.
Whichever method you choose, Bubblr is for sure to be a great learning tool for students!
