Colorful, Dynamic and Interactive: Reimagining Classroom Content
For decades worksheets have been the cornerstone of practice activities across the curriculum, but they are a legacy of a bygone age for 21st century learners. In order to remain relevant, today's teachers are asked to reimagine everything they have been doing for years. Classroom content these days is expected to be colorful, dynamic, and interactive. But how does a teacher go from a file cabinet filled with worksheets to multimedia content? This session is designed to help teachers begin to create their own materials – using the tools they already have.  THIS SESSION IS REPEATED SATURDAY @ 1:30pm.

The word “comics” conjures images of Spiderman in the minds of most. But comics are not just texts that entertain. The complex interaction of words, images, sound, and space in comics makes them a rich site for the study of visual rhetoric in the classroom. The iPad app ComicLife allows students to practice principles of visual rhetoric to create their own comics, regardless of artistic ability. Using technology to create multimedia texts like comics cultivates the kinds of 21st Century literacy skills that scholars and organizations like the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) have stressed that students need.
