For those of us who may not be able to draw more than a stick figure there is ToonDoo!  Create comic strips and cartoons with just a few clicks, drags and drops.

It allows you to upload existing images, create characters from scratch and has a social wrapper that allows for others to comment.  It is a free and public site         ( you will need a paid account to make your comic private).

You and your students can use a comic to:

  • demonstrate concepts
  • display language skills
  • practice language skills and expressions
  • present ideas without drawing
  • present equations or formulas
  • create a storyboard
