Creative Comic Collaboration For Fun Fluency Development by Sylvia Guinan
Comics are brain-friendly, fun, creative tools for unlocking self-expression in language learners. Visual story-boarding and other techniques using comics are extremely effective for practising language skills through social and emotional learning. You don’t just teach the language, you reach the hearts of your students.
Sylvia Guinan will explain the psychology behind comic power and give ideas for collaborative learning using comics.
