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!

Our comprehensive project was to create our own graphic novel and to send a copy of it to the author that inspired us. We are now able to do that thanks to you folks at Pixton. Thank you so much for allowing us to have you in our classroom. I will be recommending you to my colleagues and students.

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

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.

Pixton is a great tool for educators to help extend the lesson being taught. Students are given the opportunity to improve their creative writing skills through the use of a fun, interactive web 2.0 tool. I have shared this site with the members of my site, Technology Integration in Education.

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.

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

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!

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.

It enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.

Pixton is very user-friendly, designed in a safe way for students. It's a fun and easy way to reinforce all Language Arts skills, especially for those who are not strong readers.

– Amy James on CBS News9

The kids loved it, and it was a user-friendly way of sending important Student Council messages to others in the school. The students were able to make simple comics, but they could also spend more time to create more complex ones.

– Ms. Levy, Teacher

San Mateo, California

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

Pixton was awesome, my students loved it!

– Mr. Gale, Teacher

Tasmania, Australia

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

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

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

Pixton was great fun and really got the pupils engaged. Through creative presentation they produced some high quality understanding of the topic.

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

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

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

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.
