Students were able to write and share their writing in a motivating way.
– Mr. Rand, 8th Grade Technology
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
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
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
Very interesting and useful tool. Our students were really motivated and looking forward to having their Arts lesson.
– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher
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
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!
– Ms. Del Bianco, Technology Integration Specialist
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
Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.
– Keri Green
Students were interested and enjoyed using Pixton. Using the program was easy for most students and all got the hang of things quickly.
– Ms. Martin, 8th Grade
Students gave considerable thought to story structure and sequencing. They enjoyed working on their projects in class and at home.
– Mr. Memmott, Computers Teacher
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
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
The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.
– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers
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 enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.
– Ms. in't Veld, Teacher-Librarian
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
A comic has all the grammar and spelling elements of a regular writing assignment. It reinforces all of the State Learning Standards at every single level of your child's education, so it's a really important tool.
– Amy James on CBS News9
Highly engaging, easy to use software with clever functions allowing me to review and feedback to my class. I can think of loads of ways it could be used to demonstrate and evidence learning.
– Ms. Pulleine, Year 3 English
Pixton for Schools was a safe way for students to learn and explore the world of avatars and comic creations. We found it to be the best program because it would save/export in a number of different formats!
– Ms. Berg, 6th Grade Math Teacher
Fantastic creative way to present OCR Science information. Pixton improved students literacy and understanding.
– Mr. Coles, Teacher
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.
– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade
Pixton is a great tool for educators to help extend the lesson being taught. Students are given the opportunity to improve their creative writing skills through the use of a fun, interactive web 2.0 tool. I have shared this site with the members of my site, Technology Integration in Education.
– Mr. Limperis, Technology Facilitator
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 a fantastic tool to promote further understanding, application, and authenticity to my LOTE (Languages Other Than English) classroom.
– Ms. Wong, World Languages
It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.
– Ms. Hawlicki, Grade 8
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
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
Very easy to use and manipulate the characters. Students enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression in the characters.
– Mr. Daniels, 7th Grade Science Teacher
Pixton offered my students a creative and fun way to use their communication skills in Spanish.
– Ms. Engel-Aiello, Grade 12
Pixton for Schools provided my students the opportunity to apply the concepts and theories learned in sociology because they had to create a comic that illustrated it in a "real-world" scenario.
– Mr. Weedon, 12th Grade Sociology
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
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
Pixton gave my students a creative option for retelling, reflecting on, and responding to the story we read. I could easily determine who really understood the text and who didn't by the product they produced.
– Ms. Mason, ESL 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
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
