TEDxLansing-Stephen Thomas-The Comic Book:Mild-mannered Amusement by Day,Educational Superhero...

Stephen Thomas, Assistant Professor of Zoology at MSU & Assistant Curator for science education at the MSU museum, describes how comic books can engage students and be effective ways to communicate science. As an educator, Thomas uses new technologies and comics to merge visuals and text in order to help students learn. The use of comics has shown that students have more interest in the subject, worked harder, and uderstood more because they have a connection to both the class and the instructor. In addition to teaching, Thomas has many new projects in the works including children's books, webcomics, and educational touchscreen games. About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) http://www.tedxlansing.com http://twitter.com/TEDxLansing http://lcc.edu/tv/ http://twitter.com/LCCTVTheLink http://www.capitalcityfilmfest.com http://www.lansingmedia.com
