Students have complete control over what they create, which they enjoy. The fact that things can be saved and worked on at a later date is valuable as well.

It motivated the students to do their work. I used it to have them illustrate literary vocabulary.

Pixton is one of my favorite web tools. I have my students read an informational text and explain it in a comic. It is a rigorous assignment because they must take an informational reading and turn it into a narrative. The kids love it and so do I!
