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!

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 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.

Pixton provided a fun, creative outlet for students to demonstrate their understanding. of the Earth's movement around the sun. Our boys and girls were excited about their projects.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

My ESL students used this to show humor across languages and cultures. They loved it!

I loved being able to have the student create comics for their Spanish class using their vocabulary! They could be creative and funny, and yet meet the criteria set forth in the assignment.
– Ms. White
True innovation comes along only once in a blue moon. Pixton has found a way to redefine comics and transform them into both a learning tool and a social community.
– Steven Schneiderman
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.

It allowed an alternate form of a unit project for a set of English classes. The teacher and students were very excited about using it and enjoyed the process.
– Mr. DiSalvo, Tech Specialist
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.
– Mr. Coles, Education Bradford
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
The kids were very engaged and were learning skills like sequencing, sentence structure and story building while having a great time.
– Ms. Stein, 6th Grade English
This "teacher's secret weapon" is worth every penny. Put one of the site's how-to videos on your interactive whiteboard and count the seconds until everyone is hooked.
– Christy Crawford, Technology
My students loved working with Pixton! We completed the reading of a graphic novel, and the students were to create a comic from a list of ideas generated from the novel.
– Ms. Gatheridge, 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
Absolutely brilliant software, great as a teaching and learning tool.
– Jutka Czirok, teacher
The students were able to use Pixton to create their own "graphic memoirs" after reading Stitches, by David Small. Pixton allowed them to explore the relationship between words and images in telling a story.
– Ms. Kelly, 9th Grade
Pixton was a great way for my students to express themselves through their comic strip while also applying their knowledge of writing in French!
– Ms. Goldthorp, 10th Grade French
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 is one of my favorite web tools. I use it with vocabulary; I assign each student a few of the week's words. The assignment is to show, not tell, what the vocabulary words mean in a comic. The kids love it and so do I!
– Ms. Hartman, Technology Integration
It motivated the students to do their work. I used it to have them illustrate literary vocabulary.
– Ms. Bushby, 6th Grade
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.
