  • are stronger learning tools than text books: the brain processes images 60,000 times more quickly than it processes text. Sometimes pictures can tell a story more effectively than words.
  • improve literacy, storytelling (narrative), engagement and motivation in their creation; a solid understanding of the subject is required.
  • improve drawing, computer and research skills.
  • are fun!
