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.)
  • Frames
  • 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

Desarrollar una actividad que les permita a los alumnos poder armar una historieta partiendo de las fotos tomadas con la webcam de su OLPC. La actividad permitiría editar las fotos, utilizando diferentes tipos de elementos predeterminados como

  • Burbujas de textos, pensamientos, ideas, etc.
  • Escenarios (paisajes, ciudades, edificios, día lluvioso, etc..)
  • Marcos
  • Accesorios (sombrero, remera, traje, moño, lentes, bigotes, etc.)
  • Dibujar y pintar sobre las fotos.
  • Dibujar, pintar personajes y objetos de traza libre.

Creation of comic strips

Screenshot of an almost finished comic

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.

La idea de esta actividad es dar una herramienta de expresión, en la que puedan combinar la representación gestual, la fotografía, los guiones, etc. La aplicación tiene pocas funciones para hacerla más simple de usar.
