We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.

– Mr. Smith, Teacher

Summerville, South Carolina

All the alternative facial expressions and body movements, as well as speech bubbles, added to students' ability to get just the right mood. It was not only fun for the students, but there were so many options the students could use to make the comic fit the scene.

Pixton is wonderful. My students are using it to tell the stories of Edgar Allen Poe. Retelling the stories in Pixton has created an interest I had not seen before. It is wonderful!

The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.

A mind blowing, game changing and all around awesome web-based comic strip generation tool. Following in the footsteps of Flickr, YouTube and Twitter, Pixton is poised to join the short list of cutting-edge, top-tier and truly innovative social web tools.

Awesome site with limitless possibilities! You can have kids do comics to demonstrate understanding in almost any subject... and the kids have fun while doing it! Plan to use it all the time next year.

– Ms. Reeves, 5th Grade

Our comprehensive project was to create our own graphic novel and to send a copy of it to the author that inspired us. We are now able to do that thanks to you folks at Pixton. Thank you so much for allowing us to have you in our classroom. I will be recommending you to my colleagues and students.

– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English

Due to Pixton comics, not only have my students been better able to understand the scientific content of their lessons, but they actually look forward to reading the comic aloud, incorporating character voices, and finding out what we'll be doing that day!

– Mr. Bignami, 8th Grade Science

Teacher in Miami, Florida

True innovation comes along only once in a blue moon. Pixton has found a way to redefine comics and transform them into both a learning tool and a social community.

I teach a class called Social Communication: a blended classroom of regular education English remediation students combined with kids with autism. We've been working on emotions and correct ways of expressing them via facial gestures and body language. Having my students make comics expressing the appropriate emotions for a scenario was of immense help to the kids. Thanks for a wonderful product.

– Ms. Kingsley, English

Teacher in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

My students loved this program. We used two other comic programs this year but this was by far the best and gave them the chance to do so much and be so creative and add nuance to their stories like no other.

– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade

English Teacher in New York

It truly motivated my students. They could use the comic format to work about topics they are interested in, including social issues and things happening in their neighbourhood.

– Ms. Martin, 5th Grade

Teacher in Spain

Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.

– Ms. Roberts, 8th Grade Teacher

Pixton for Schools was a great way for students to practice written dialogue using the Spanish phrases we learned in class. I also loved the feature that allowed me to create a rubric on the site, use it for grading, and have students self-evaluate with the same rubric.

– Ms. Perez, 10th Grade Spanish

Teacher in Haddon Heights, New Jersey

Great experience with creativity and expressing ideas in static comic form. It was great to share each work with other classmates and be able to print to take home. I see many uses for Pixton in my classroom and in my school.

– Mr. Battisti, 6th Grade Humanities

Teacher in National Park, New Jersey

Many of my students enjoyed having the opportunity to earn "class participation points" by creating comics based on science concepts we've studied throughout the year. Some students created comics to help them process what they were learning in the current unit of study.

– Ms. Abrams, Teacher

Newbury Park, California

Excellent for its role in evaluating a unit in science, social studies, language arts or in many other disciplines. In addition, it offers technology in a fun way that students enjoy.

Using Pixton to create scenes from a play is a simple way for students to explore Shakespeare's texts in a graphic format. With Pixton's built-in graphics and templates, the user can make the most subtle facial expressions, as well as detailed hand and body positions.

– Michael LoMonico, Senior Consultant

We created comics in a safe environment. I loved the ability to create assignments and to share assignments with other teachers and to see what other teachers are doing with Pixton. Love that I can use their ideas in my classes.

– Ms. Szanto, 7th Grade Teacher

My students loved working with Pixton! We completed the reading of a graphic novel, and the students were to create a comic from a list of ideas generated from the novel.

– Ms. Gatheridge, 9th Grade

Teacher in Hallock, Minnesota

I have never seen my students so engaged with a lesson. I was amazed at how much effort and creativity they put into their comics. Normally, their attention span lasts about twenty minutes. With Pixton, my students were focused for days!

– Colleen G., Social Studies

Teacher in Pennsylvania

This was a great program for my students. They created panels of events leading to the Revolutionary War. They had to illustrate through their panels the relationship each panel had to the war. They loved the creative parts, and were impressed with their final product.
