Pixton comics are a great way to spark interest in my students and help them retain the basic ideas of a lesson. The combination of various learning methods, visual images and text, along with auditory reading aloud, helps students grasp each concept and retain that knowledge!

Pixton was a great professional tool that was user friendly and engaging for my students. I especially liked how well it works with low motivated students and students who have trouble with reading.

Pixton was relatively easy to use for my students. I teach a self-contained special education class, and my students really enjoyed showing off to their non-disabled peers. I also liked the submission feature which allowed to be to send feedback straight back to them.

Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.
