Photonovels for patient education

Photonovels for patient education : "Photonovels (or fotonovelas) are like comic books, but they are compiled using photographs and captions and they are a highly visual and creative form of getting a message across to wide ranging audiences. Based on the revolutionary Brazilian educator Paulo Friere’s concepts of participatory education, the process of creating the photonovel allows learners to define the content and outcome of their own learning by creating a story line about an important topic or theme and then acting it out; using photography as a means to express a story and message.
Essentially, the genre of the photonovel challenges a more traditional educational approach because it has the learner as the main subject in the pedagogical process."

These are a great way of teaching patients , since they combine story telling with pictures - and they are so easy to produce with today's technology !
