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
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
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
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
A mind blowing, game changing and all around awesome web-based comic strip generation tool. Following in the footsteps of Flickr, YouTube and Twitter, Pixton is poised to join the short list of cutting-edge, top-tier and truly innovative social web tools.
– Derek E. Baird
The kids loved it, and it was a user-friendly way of sending important Student Council messages to others in the school. The students were able to make simple comics, but they could also spend more time to create more complex ones.
– Ms. Levy, Teacher
Fantastic creative way to present OCR Science information. Pixton improved students literacy and understanding.
– Mr. Coles, Teacher
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
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
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
Pixton for Schools was an excellent resource for my students to use to incorporate technology in science.
– Ms. Moon, 4th Grade Science Teacher
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 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!
– Ms. Hartman, Technology Integration
It was a fantastic and easy to use learning tool which kept all my students engaged.
– Mr. McGillicuddy, Grade 3
Pixton for Schools gave my class a challenge to put together their narrative writing into comic form, but also gave them great satisfaction and enjoyment in being able to produce something unique and creative.
– Ms. Shaw, Year 7
I have never seen my students so engaged with a lesson. I was amazed at how much effort and creativity they put into their comics. Normally, their attention span lasts about twenty minutes. With Pixton, my students were focused for days!
– Colleen G., Social Studies
The students loved it! They were totally engaged!
– Ms. Gouthro, Grade 5 English
Pixton for Schools has huge value. The students were connected and found the learning fun. The programme engaged our low acheivers and they found pixton very rewarding.
– Ms. Grieve
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
Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.
– Mr. Gray, Grade 11
Pixton offered my students a creative and fun way to use their communication skills in Spanish.
– Ms. Engel-Aiello, Grade 12
Pixton was a great professional tool that was user friendly and engaging for my students. I especially liked how well it works with low motivated students and students who have trouble with reading. My students were able to show the range of ways they connected and interpreted a text, offering the whole class a diverse range of analysis.
– Ms. Tannous, 12th Grade
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
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 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
Excellent for its role in evaluating a unit in science, social studies, language arts or in many other disciplines. In addition, it offers technology in a fun way that students enjoy.
– Mr. Worthen, Teacher
My students created a graphic novel. I had them use the theme from Metamorphosis by Kafka and make his message in a setting and story relevant to today's teens. They were required to use symbolism, motifs, and other literary elements. Using comics made the application of literature fun and exciting!
– Ms. Franchois, Teacher
Pixton comics are a great way to spark interest in my students and help them retain the basic ideas of a lesson. The combination of various learning methods, visual images and text, along with auditory reading aloud, helps students grasp each concept and retain that knowledge!
– Mr. Bignami, 8th Grade Science
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
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
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
We created comics in a safe environment. I loved the ability to create assignments and to share assignments with other teachers and to see what other teachers are doing with Pixton. Love that I can use their ideas in my classes.
– Ms. Szanto, 7th Grade Teacher
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!
– Ms. Sorrell, 6th Grade
We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
– Mr. Smith, Teacher
It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.
