Make Beliefs Comix: Online Educational Comic Generator for Kids of All Ages

Posted on Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Make Beliefs Comix is a unique website where children can create and write dialogue for their own comic strips. If they are learning a foreign language, this is undoubtedly an excellent way for them to practice thinking and writing in that language and at the same time develop their creativity. The site is a product of journalist and newspaper editor Bill Zimmerman, with illustrations provided by Tom Bloom.

Features:

• Simple to use: to make a comic, students need only select a ready-made character, add talk balloons, and write words of their own

• Full online controls: students can choose emotions for the characters, resize talk balloons, change background colors, add panel prompts, and manipulate all comic elements (move, scale, bring to front, flip)

• Support for various languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Latin

• Options of printing and emailing a finished comic

• Story ideas and writer prompts to help students get started
