Pixton for Schools inspired the students to be creative in ways I never thought I'd see. They took difficult concepts and expressed themselves very well.
– Mr. Brecht, 4th Grade Teacher
We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
– Mr. Smith, Teacher
Teaching Shakespeare in our middle school is always a challenge. Pixton comics provided motivation for comprehension. Thanks for such an awesome website for creativity.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
Pixton for Schools was a fantastic tool to promote further understanding, application, and authenticity to my LOTE (Languages Other Than English) classroom.
– Ms. Wong, World Languages
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.
– Steven Schneiderman
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
I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.
– Ms. Page-Scott, Grade 6
Pixton for Schools was one of the best teaching tools I could have used in the classroom. It helped to motivate the students to learn about literature in a new way. We covered everything from plot to characterization and beyond using Pixton.
– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English
This "teacher's secret weapon" is worth every penny. Put one of the site's how-to videos on your interactive whiteboard and count the seconds until everyone is hooked.

It gave my students a new way to express themselves.

The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.
– Mr. Wilshaw, 11th Grade
Pixton was very easy to use. It had many special features which were helpful to the teacher, and the interface was easier for students than that of Comic Life. The results -- even simple projects -- were very professional and the students were really proud of their comic strips.
– Ms. McMullin, 7th Grade
Pixton for Schools is wonderful! We accomplished quite a stunning looking project. The kids had so much fun using the product and they saw the stories that they covered in a whole new light.
– Ms. Dempsey, 12th Grade Languages
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
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!

Students gave considerable thought to story structure and sequencing. They enjoyed working on their projects in class and at home.
– Mr. Memmott, Computers Teacher
The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.

Pixton for Schools combines the freedom to create with a set of choices that students can explore. This gives all students, even those who don't believe they are creative, the ability to be engaged. Pixton is affordable, simple, intuitive, and most of all, great fun for students.
– David Damico, Executive Director
It is a tool that has unlimited possibilities for use in the classroom. Students practice their writing skills in a non-threatening way. It is so much fun. The whole class enjoyed using it.
– Ms. Santiago, 10th Grade
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.
– Ms. Boffoli, 5th Grade English
It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.

Using Pixton for Schools as a way for students to show what they know was brilliant. My students wrote a comic strip in Bahasa Indonesia.
– Ms. Hill, Grade 7
My students tried it out to create their own graphic novels after the reading of Maus by Art Spiegelman. My students said it was fun and they wish they had more time to use it!

The students loved it! They were totally engaged!

Pixton was an excellent tool for our students to use that allowed them to use and practice using technology in a creative way.
– Ms. Wells, Grade 5 Teacher
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
It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.
– Ms. Hawlicki, Grade 8
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.
– Ms. Alessi
Pixton for Schools allows for student creativity in a very easy to use forum. I am a huge supporter of the service and know the students enjoyed using the software.
– Mr. Klingeman, 9th Grade Teacher
