Learning using educational comics
Supporting staff and students to achieve their full potential since 1968.
Welcome to our weekly CENMAC blog post.
Learning using educational comics by Wayne McCullough, CENMAC Advisory Teacher
Having recently attended a Webinar about Learning Using Educational Comics, hosted by CALL Scotland, I was really impressed to see how the use of Dekko Comics could help to support learning, especially for students who have Dyslexia, Autism and ADHD.
The comics cover a range of subject areas such as English, Maths, Science and PSHE and are aimed at 9-12-year olds. Topics such as time are covered in a fun story format, helping to make difficult concepts easier to understand.

The author of Dekko Comics, Rossie Stone, who is also dyslexia, was able to use this style of learning as part of his own revision for his own exams.
The comics are highly visually and use a dyslexia friendly font as well as making use of keywords, phrases, colour coding and speech bubbles. The colourful, well drawn format of the comics helps to engage learners in topics they would otherwise find difficult.
The author of Dekko Comics, Rossie Stone, who is also dyslexia, was able to use this style of learning as part of his own revision for his own exams. Rossie has very kindly made the comics to view on the Dekko website free of charge, which can be accessed using the link – dekkocomics.com
This is a wonderful resource which I wanted to share.
Don’t forget you can share your CENMAC experiences for our CENMAC family to enjoy.
