Over the past the past few years the organization has been growing in recognition for Nancy Silberkleit's unending efforts to combat illiteracy. However this year ComicBookFairs has been gaining significant momentum, and has decided to upgrade the entire site to reflect that growth by creating new:
*** Interactive features: ComicBookFairs defines Web 3.0 as "the ability for audience members to interact seamlessly with the components of the internet AND the people behind the internet". Given the tactile "touchy feely" aspects of comic books and learning, ComicBookFairs is uniquely positioned to take advantage of this "new wave" of fast-paced technology.
*** Storylines and Text: Comic Books are about stories and reading. Period. By populating the Website with rich text and supporting graphics, ComicBookFairs hopes to gain a loyal and dedicated audience to come back to visit again and again to see "what's new", "what's hot" and most important, teaching children "what's fun and educational."
*** Animation: Kids love animation and always will. Nancy Silberkleit realizes the "depth of history and legacy" as it relates to Archie Comics in the world of Cartoons and Animation. She is enhancing that strategic partnership with Archie Comics as Co-CEO to create awareness of the serious issue of illiteracy. This is a platform she is passionate about, and as an educator, has discovered the cure for it. COMICS! Some great stuff happening there.
*** Images: ComicBookFairs (CBF) plans a full array of comic book slides and still photos as an aid to Story lines and web pages. This expansion will also stir the imagination and creativity of the children who interact with the website.
*** Lesson Plans: CBF and Nancy Silberkleit is all about education. Therefore, the new website will have formalized lesson / activity plans that will be developed in conjunction with the comic book story lines within the program. These lesson plans will further enhance the reading and educational experience of the schools and after-school clubs participating in the CBF program.
*** Mobile apps: CBF sees the opportunity for the world of Comics to join the world of Mobile Education, and is planning apps for Android, iPhone and Blackberry.
Visit the website today, and it will say "Under Construction."
