The objective is to develop an activity that allows students to create a comic strip using pictures taken with their laptop cameras. The activity includes several pre-defined elements that can be used to be included, such as:
- Speech bubbles, thinking, ideas, etc.
- Backdrops (landscape, cityscape, buildings, rainy day, etc.)
- Props & accessories (hats, t-shirts, suits, ties, glasses, moustaches, etc.)
- Draw and paint on the picture
- Draw and paint other toons and objects mixed with free-hand
Creation of comic strips
The main idea is to create an activity that allows the child to explore and express multiple sub-activities like gestures, photography, writing of storylines, etc. The functionality is reduced in order to have a expressive but easy-to-use functions.
On the toolbar, we can find the following tools:
- Take a picture
- Pick an image (previously taken or stored)
- Text balloon (probaly will later unfold options to select the type)
- Change size and move an object
- Crop image
- Horizontal mirror
- Vertical mirror
Ongoing (see for updates)
This screenshots are SVG images used to show the idea. There isn't any code written yet, but there's ongoing brainstorm on what it should look like. Suggestions and ideas are welcome!
If the idea catches your attention, please join us at the wiki of Tuquito or mailing list.
