I am deep in the planning stages of a project for my students to complete here at the end of the year. The premise is that they must devise some dramatic rendering of the functions of a cell. They have to include all of the different organelles and their functions within the dramatic framework. Their final product can be a play, puppet show, cartoon or comic strip/comic book. The play, puppet show and cartoon will be podcasted, while the comic will be viewable online. I found a very cool opensource program for animation called Pencil
. I'm thinking of using ToonDoo
for the comic, but I'm not entirely satisfied with the rigidity of its interface. I haven't even begun to explore podcasting tools. If anybody has any suggestions, I'm all ears.
