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

Winnipeg, Manitoba

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

Greenville, North Carolina

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.

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.

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.

– Ms. Page-Scott, Grade 6

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.

– Amy James on CBS News9

Author, Knowledge Essentials series

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

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

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.

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.
