We know that learning can be more engaging when students are given a choice of how they produce their work. Cate has shared this wonderful work produced by one of her BTEC PE students in the form of a comic strip. The task was as follows:

Scenario
You are working alongside a local sports coach to support the training of his squad. One of the athletes has requested an information sheet describing how the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and energy systems respond to long-term exercise and training.

Task
You would like to help the athlete to understand their how the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and energy systems respond to long-term exercise and training. In order to do this you will need to produce an informative presentation (in any format you choose) that they can take away and read, or that could be displayed on the wall.

The above image is just a small section of one student’s finished work. The application used to create this was bitstrips.com.

There are alternatives to bitstrip –

pixton.com

create your own Marvel comic

Comic Master

Out of these, Pixton loks to have the greatest functionality but it also has a paid option. The free option looks very slick though.
