Magnet Comic!

With a history of a promising Kickstarter project that suffered from a troubled production, communication breakdown, and shipping delays, Magnet Comic is finally in my hands.

Magnet Comic, a product conceived and hand-made from Erik Heumiller in Somerville, Massachusetts, USA, is a product that lets you create your own comics. I backed this project for the reason that it may help students come up with creative scenarios for their story-writing. The challenge is for them to conjure up an interesting idea, and then express it between just three separate panes. It also can be used for a bit of fun.

Well, this project was successfully backed way back in December 2012 and I’ve been waiting to receive it since that date, and let me tell you, there isn’t a better way to describe my feelings towards it, than in comic strip form:

It’s a pretty cool product, and well made, too. Highly recommended for your students, or for selfish ambitions.

…by the way, it’s probably very easy to make one yourself. Go then, and get inspired!

New Years Eve Sydney!

What better way to showcase the famous fireworks from the Sydney Harbour Bridge than in animated GIF format!

Prac teaching paperwork

Although I am nearly finished with my practical teaching, I thought I’d upload the lesson plan and day book templates I’ve been using for the past few weeks. Feel free to use and modify them for your own needs and purposes; I’m sure they will come in handy while you are planning your exciting lesson for either yourself or another teacher to take up.
