Pixton for Schools allows for student creativity in a very easy to use forum. I am a huge supporter of the service and know the students enjoyed using the software.

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

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.

– Ms. Muncy, Grade 4 Science

Teacher in Flatwoods, Kentucky

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!

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.

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

– Mr. Ferrer, Grade 12

Teacher in Massamagrell, Spain

Our students were engaged and excited about their presentations. The comic format motivated our students and provided them the opportunity to use and develop many computer skills as well as their Science knowledge.

– Ms. Wells, Grade 4 Teacher

Winnipeg, Manitoba

I found this program an excellent tool in checking the students' writing ability concerning proper grammar, punctuation, and the use of different literary techniques.

– Ms. Roberts, 8th Grade Teacher

Saint Joseph, Missouri

It truly motivated my students. They could use the comic format to work about topics they are interested in, including social issues and things happening in their neighbourhood.

– Ms. Martin, 5th Grade

Teacher in Spain

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.

– Mr. Wellington, 8th Grade History

Teacher in California

Wonderful website. I loved how I could assign a project, create a rubric, have the kids self-assess, grade and give feeback. Pixton is my new favorite website.

– Ms. Kearns, 6th Grade Science

Teacher in Colorado

My students created a graphic novel. I had them use the theme from Metamorphosis by Kafka and make his message in a setting and story relevant to today's teens. They were required to use symbolism, motifs, and other literary elements. Using comics made the application of literature fun and exciting!

– Ms. Franchois, Teacher

Doylestown, Pennsylvania

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.

– Mr. Worthen, Teacher

Qualicum Beach, British Columbia

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

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

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.

– Ms. Bolling, 6th Grade

Teacher in Brooklyn, New York

Teaching Shakespeare in our middle school is always a challenge. Pixton comics provided motivation for comprehension. Thanks for such an awesome website for creativity.

Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.

– Keri Green

Massachusetts New Literacies Institute

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

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

Teacher in Minnesota

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

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

Teacher in Mississippi

I needed my students to create individual comic strips about the Bill of Rights. Pixton had the perfect image library. And it was easy to use!

– Ms. Del Bianco, Technology Integration Specialist

I teach gifted students. They loved Pixton! This was a great new medium for them to get creative.

– Ms. Mattingly, 4th / 5th Grade

Teacher in Florida

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.

– Ms. Kingsley, English

Teacher in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

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

It was a fantastic and easy to use learning tool which kept all my students engaged.

– Mr. McGillicuddy, Grade 3

Teacher in NSW, Australia

Pixton for Schools was a safe way for students to learn and explore the world of avatars and comic creations. We found it to be the best program because it would save/export in a number of different formats!

– Ms. Berg, 6th Grade Math Teacher

Sunnyvale, California

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

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,

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

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.

– Michael LoMonico, Senior Consultant

Folger Shakespeare Library

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

Pixton was an excellent tool in my Grade 10 writing course. The ease of evaluation, setting projects, class rubrics, and teacher supervision was amazing. Student projects were creative, informative and students were very much engaged. Great software and a great site for teachers to manage classes and assign projects. Five stars all the way.

– Mr. Tulk, Grade 10 English

Teacher in Deer Lake, Newfoundland

This was a great program for my students. They created panels of events leading to the Revolutionary War. They had to illustrate through their panels the relationship each panel had to the war. They loved the creative parts, and were impressed with their final product.

– Ms. Boffoli, 5th Grade English

Teacher in Longmeadhow, Massachusetts

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.
