Evaluating Comic Strip Generators

We did something fun this morning. It was an old Web 1.0 activity in a new Web 2.0 way. I made a website evaluation rubric using rubistar with 4 categories—content, layout, navigation, graphics. I made a packet with 7 copies of the rubric for each student.

We used the comic generator websites listed here

Kids evaluated each site, we discussed which one we liked the most, analysed the rubric data and the student had the chance to explore and print their favorite cartoon. The kids loved it. N
