Testimonials

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.

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

Teacher in Hallock, Minnesota

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

Abbotsford, British Columbia

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

It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.

– Mr. Riehle, 7th Grade Teacher

Sultan, Washington

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

It helped me provide a creative outlet for my students so that they could showcase their literary skills in an interesting format.

– Ms. Ballard, 12th Grade

It gave my students a new way to express themselves.

– Ms. Sasscer, Computers/Math

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

Teacher in Queensland, Australia

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!

– Liz L., teacher

Manheim, Pennsylvania

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

Teacher in Kent, Connecticut

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

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

Teacher in Fairbanks, Alaska

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

Whangarei, New Zealand

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

Kamloops, British Columbia

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

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

Westampton, New Jersey

Very interesting and useful tool. Our students were really motivated and looking forward to having their Arts lesson.

– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher

Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain

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

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

– Mr. Gray, Grade 11

English Teacher in Fountain, Colorado

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

Teacher in Winder, Georgia,

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

Bradford, United Kingdom

The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.

– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers

Teacher in Ashbrooke, United Kingdom

All the alternative facial expressions and body movements, as well as speech bubbles, added to students' ability to get just the right mood. It was not only fun for the students, but there were so many options the students could use to make the comic fit the scene.

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

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

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

Teacher in Miami, Florida

Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.

– Ms. Parker, Teacher

Old Town, Maine

Absolutely brilliant software, great as a teaching and learning tool.

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

My students loved it! Pixton was a fun way for students to summarize a book. I think this would be a great alternative to a test, and what could be better than using technology to do so? I am impressed with all students could do with their comic strip.

– Ms. Lange, 7th Grade

Teacher in Marinette, Wisconsin

The kids were very engaged and were learning skills like sequencing, sentence structure and story building while having a great time.
