Pixton has just worked flawlessly. It's pretty clear that you "get" education. There are so many nice touches that make life easy for teachers.
– Mr. Vogel, ICT / Physics Teacher
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 comic software was of great value. The students were able to develop and create various comics. The exposure allowed the students to incorporate art and ELA standards.
– Ms. Bolling, 6th Grade
It was a fantastic and easy to use learning tool which kept all my students engaged.
– Mr. McGillicuddy, Grade 3
We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!
– Ms. Butler, Teacher
My students that don't normally want to write, were writing dialogue and loving it. After they completed their assignment on bullying prevention, they created other comics on different topics on their own. Comics are another form of writing, with a twist that students enjoy.
– Ms. Trella, 7th Grade
We used Pixton for Schools as a tool to respond to independent reading of books. Students used the comic strip format to show characters' conflicts, story summary, and plot development. As a teacher I liked that all work and comments required my approval before publishing. The students liked the features, such as background choices and drawing tools to "build" their characters.
– Ms. Escott, Teacher
My students enjoyed being creative with Pixton for Schools. We also like that you don't need to install it onto computers in the school. The online nature of it makes it so easy.
– Ms. Hill, Grade 7
Pixton was awesome, my students loved it!
– Mr. Gale, Teacher
Our students were engaged and excited about their presentations. The comic format motivated our students and provided them the opportunity to use and develop many computer skills as well as their Science knowledge.
– Ms. Wells, Grade 4 Teacher
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
Pixton offered my students a creative and fun way to use their communication skills in Spanish.
– Ms. Engel-Aiello, Grade 12
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
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
In a creative project with specific learning standards, Pixton allowed students to collaborate in groups to produce an educational work that was fun to make and they were proud to share.
– Mr. Wellington, 8th Grade History
Unique medium for presenting information in a fun and interactive way. Students were very interested in producing their own comic in order to share key curriculum goals.
– Mr. Martens, Grade 10 Teacher
Pixton for Schools was great! Students had a creative way to demonstrate their knowledge and practice their technology skills. Your customer service is awesome!
– Ms. Anderson, 8th Grade Computers
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
Pixton was great fun and really got the pupils engaged. Through creative presentation they produced some high quality understanding of the topic.
– Ms. Martin, Grade 9 Arts
It helped my students to better understand the play we were reading in class.

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
Pixton was an excellent tool in my Grade 10 writing course. The ease of evaluation, setting projects, class rubrics, and teacher supervision was amazing. Student projects were creative, informative and students were very much engaged. Great software and a great site for teachers to manage classes and assign projects. Five stars all the way.
– Mr. Tulk, Grade 10 English
Pixton allowed my students to be fully engaged on the material that I was teaching while simultaneously drawing both their interest and creativity in a very interesting medium!
– Ms. Brown, 7th Grade Technology
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!
– Ms. Anderson, Middle School Teacher
Very interesting and useful tool. Our students were really motivated and looking forward to having their Arts lesson.
– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher
I teach gifted students. They loved Pixton! This was a great new medium for them to get creative.
– Ms. Mattingly, 4th / 5th Grade
Absolutely brilliant software, great as a teaching and learning tool.
– Jutka Czirok, teacher
On-task time during class was incredibly high, and all the students enjoyed sharing their comics on the Smartboard with the rest of the class. It is amazing how these tech-native students quickly master this medium.
– Ms. Gatheridge, 9th Grade
The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.

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.

Pixton.com is unprecedented in making comic strip generation considerably simple. With its simple click-and-drag interface, Pixton enables its users with a fast, easy, and interactive way to create detailed and professional-looking comic strips.
– Jason Alyesh
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
Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.
– Ms. Parker, Teacher
Pixton enabled my students to present their understandings of environmental issues in creative and exciting ways. Students were engaged throughout the process and the functionality was simple but also enabled detailed customisation for those students that wanted to extend themselves.
– Mr. Fitz, Grade 3 English
I found this program an excellent tool in checking the students' writing ability concerning proper grammar, punctuation, and the use of different literary techniques.
– Ms. Roberts, 8th Grade Teacher
I LOVED Pixton for Schools! My students LOVED it. It was so easy to differentiate for my varying levels of learners. As they worked on projects they were actually having fun, laughing, and learning content – a teacher's dream!
