The project’s aims are:

To know about European places and languages.

To learn to create stories and how to convert them into comics.

To learn about software tools such as: web browser, forum, wiki, blog, text editor, image editor, desktop publisher, etc.

 

Work process:

Each school creates its own script and draws one of the pages of the comic with black ink: the topic is based on a flea that arrives in the city/town where the school is, once there, something funny happens to him.

Pupils at vocational training centers colour all the pages using GIMP.

The whole pages are translated by the school members into all the native languages.

The project manager team composes the comic using Scribus, and publishes it in PDF, web and paper.

♦ There will be related activities such as: a cover contest, a web quest creation activity, a wiki of onomatopeias and interjections, a test of specific software of comic creation, etc.
