See you at SXSW Interactive 2011!

The Create a Comic Project will be going to SXSW Interactive 2011! My solo presentation, "Interactive Comics: Techniques to Enhance Math Education," will be an hour long and combine several of my previous presentations on the comic project and math. It's the single biggest event in the project's history, so I am very excited to be given this opportunity!

Only 500 sessions from the 2400 submissions were selected, so I'm very pleased that SXSW chose mine to be among them. Other educators that will be presenting include Chris Lehmann, founder of the Science Leadership Academy, and Nina Walia of PBS Kids.

Create a Comic Project at SXSW Interactive 2011!

The project currently has a presentation - "Interactive Comics: Techniques to Enhance Math Education" - under consideration for SXSW Interactive 2011. Please register for Panel Picker and vote!

A short break

I know the comic hasn't updated the last few days. I'm currently in the middle of a three part move: going from NYC to Austin (done) and now from Austin to Houston (not done). Why? Because I have a job! I'll be teaching math at a charter school in Houston. And you can bet one classroom activity I'll be using!

Two New Webcomics Join!

Two new webcomics have joined the project:

Doomies! by Maritza Campos (who also does "College Roomies from Hell")
King of the Web by Kuroitenshi

Kuroitenshi served as a judge for the "Make a Manga Tournament" workshop at Otakon 2009 and has kindly offered her artwork for use in the project. She sends me hi-res textless versions of her comic. She's also agreed to be a judge at the workshops planned for Colossal Con 2010 and Otakon 2010!
