Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.

English Teacher in Fountain, Colorado

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.

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.

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.

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

Springfield, Massachusetts

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

Spanish Teacher in Adams, Nebraska

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

Teacher in Pennsylvania

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.

– Mr. Pinta, 7th Grade

Teacher in Westland, Michigan

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

Teacher in Melbourne, 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

My students loved this program. We used two other comic programs this year but this was by far the best and gave them the chance to do so much and be so creative and add nuance to their stories like no other.

– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade

English Teacher in New York

Pixton for Schools combines the freedom to create with a set of choices that students can explore. This gives all students, even those who don't believe they are creative, the ability to be engaged. Pixton is affordable, simple, intuitive, and most of all, great fun for students.

– David Damico, Executive Director

Ecademy California

Pixton for Schools was one of the best teaching tools I could have used in the classroom. It helped to motivate the students to learn about literature in a new way. We covered everything from plot to characterization and beyond using Pixton.

– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English

Teacher in Jasper, Georgia

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

Teacher in Miami, Florida

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

Westampton, New Jersey

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

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

Teacher in NSW, Australia

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

Reading, Pennsylvania

This was a different format than the norm for the students to convey their knowledge on a subject. The students enjoyed working in this medium. I really liked that the students could log in at home.

– Ms. Cooper, 7th Grade

Teacher in New Albany, Indiana

What a great website! It's so creative and fun. I love the colors, the styles, all the options for creating comics. It's something that I looked forward to spending time on, because ideas come at different times. Terrific!

– iParenting Media Awards' Reviewer

– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher

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.

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

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

Teacher in Devon, UK

Very easy to use and manipulate the characters. Students enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression in the characters.
