Comic Strip Makers and a Conversation with Darek Teller of Cel.ly - HoET006

UPDATE: Celly no longer exists. But this conversation can be applied to the ideas of communication with students and families on your platform of choice.


Featured Content

Listen to a great interview with Darek Teller from Celly. Celly believes small messages change the world so they built a place where your message will:
  • build movements
  • inspire learning
  • level the playing field
  • & promote free speech

#EdTech Thought

I express some of the frustrations of conducting master’s degree research and attempt to entice you to participate in research when you have the opportunity!

Recommendation

Comic strips provide a powerful way to get students to enjoy and be motivated about writing. Students love to interact with things they can see and the following comic strip generators will get students to engage in conversations using cartoon characters and build stories and share their works with each other.
