The assignment was simple: tell an illustrated story in ten pages using the Comic Life app on the iPad. The difficulty lay in the mixture of specifics (length) and open-endedness (no further instruction on content). We wanted the students to be able to tell a fictional or non-fiction story and work within any genre they prefer, as well as being able to choose if they would draw or photograph their own pictures or use stock images. The results were compelling.
