Today is the final day of the EETT Summer Institute and we have the luxury of learning about Comic Life from our very own Comic Life Master – Linda Giguere. If you have never used Comic Life think about checking out the manufacturer’s website. You can download a free 30 day trial and the pricing isn’t too step if you would like to purchase this software for your school site. Here in San Juan I’ve seen students using Comic Life to create digital posters on topics ranging from how to solve algebraic word problems, to the parts of an atom and biographies of famous authors. Hands down Comic Life was one of my students’ most favorite applications when I taught at Jonas Salk.
During Linda’s presentation this morning I learned about Comic Life for the iPhone or iPod Touch. This version is called Comic Touch. Five minutes and $2.99 later I was creating my first Comic Life iPhone project. I am amazed at what I can do with this program on my phone. Granted its not as heavily optioned as the computer version of Comic Life, but you can still create some pretty neat projects to upload to sites like Flickr and Facebook to share with your friends. The picture I posted is one I took at Whitey’s Jolly Cone in West Sacramento the other night. Whitey’s Zagat rating drove me there and I think I might have discovered the best shakes in Sacramento hands down!
