Beyond Word Bubbles: Superpowered Virtual Exchange

Mar 8, 2022

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

How might students create comics to better understand content, themselves, and others? How might virtual exchange harness the power of comics and community for global impact? In this session, panelists will share best practices and discuss how an innovative virtual exchange program pilot with over 300 teachers and students spanning 12 time zones collaborated and used comics as tools for story creation and storytelling, mutual understanding, critical thinking, and equity.
