Although we've only been around a short time, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the thousands of you interested in comics and education for dropping by our site. We've just gone past the 1,000,000 mark and we're not slowing down.
In the coming months, we'd love to feature the work you're doing in the fields of comics and/or education, so if you have a Kickstarter you'd like promoted, a cool project you'd like some press for, or if you'd just like to touch base, please don't hesitate to contact us.
As well, if there's anything you'd like to see on the site that you don't yet, let us know. Comics in Education is really only as useful as the great ideas that make their way to our inbox!
In honour of our 1,000,000 page view, I thought I'd provide a link to arguably our most popular post to date. It shows the power that visual media can bring to the classroom, and what a phenomenal student can do with it to develop an enduring understanding of, in this case, poetry!
