The students were highly motivated and carried out activities assigned to them with great interest.

Teacher in Massamagrell, Spain

Pixton was very easy to use. It had many special features which were helpful to the teacher, and the interface was easier for students than that of Comic Life. The results -- even simple projects -- were very professional and the students were really proud of their comic strips.

– Ms. McMullin, 7th Grade

Media Specialist in Flemington, New Jersey

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.

– Mrs. Kemper

7th Grade English 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.

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

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

Teacher in NSW, Australia

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

Teacher in Hallock, Minnesota

Extremely useful as part of a New Technology in Science project. Students visited various museums/educational centres, recorded their experiences through video cameras and microphones. These images were them used with Pixton to produce comics.

It is an incredible product. I have been creating a database of teacher websites and this product really stands out.

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.

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.

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.

– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers

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

Teacher in Youngstown, Ohio

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.

It enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.
