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.

Teacher in Youngstown, Ohio

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.

Education Award for project "Pixton with Shakespeare"

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.

We used Pixton for pragmatics (social language and problem solving) because of the intricate features it offers for character's body language and facial expressions. It helped my students (who have written expression deficits) get EXCITED about storytelling.

I needed my students to create individual comic strips about the Bill of Rights. Pixton had the perfect image library. And it was easy to use!

My students loved it! Pixton was a fun way for students to summarize a book. I think this would be a great alternative to a test, and what could be better than using technology to do so? I am impressed with all students could do with their comic strip.

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.
