Kids really enjoyed working on the comics, even out of school.
– Mr. Riehle, 7th Grade Teacher
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
It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.
– Ms. Hawlicki, Grade 8
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.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.
– Ms. Page-Scott, Grade 6
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
Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.
– Ms. Parker, Teacher
The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.
– Mr. Wilshaw, 11th Grade
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
It is an incredible product. I have been creating a database of teacher websites and this product really stands out.
– Teachers First
It motivated the students to do their work. I used it to have them illustrate literary vocabulary.
– Ms. Bushby, 6th Grade
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
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.
– Ms. Tannous, 12th Grade
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
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
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
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
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
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
Pixton offered my students a creative and fun way to use their communication skills in Spanish.
– Ms. Engel-Aiello, Grade 12
Using Pixton for Schools as a way for students to show what they know was brilliant. My students wrote a comic strip in Bahasa Indonesia.
– Ms. Hill, Grade 7
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
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
Great experience with creativity and expressing ideas in static comic form. It was great to share each work with other classmates and be able to print to take home. I see many uses for Pixton in my classroom and in my school.
– Mr. Battisti, 6th Grade Humanities
The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.
– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers
Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.
– Mr. Gray, Grade 11
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
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
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
Pixton for Schools provided my students the opportunity to apply the concepts and theories learned in sociology because they had to create a comic that illustrated it in a "real-world" scenario.
– Mr. Weedon, 12th Grade Sociology
The students were highly motivated and carried out activities assigned to them with great interest.
– Mr. Ferrer, Grade 12
Pixton was a great way for my students to express themselves through their comic strip while also applying their knowledge of writing in French!
– Ms. Goldthorp, 10th Grade French
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
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
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
It is a tool that has unlimited possibilities for use in the classroom. Students practice their writing skills in a non-threatening way. It is so much fun. The whole class enjoyed using it.
– Ms. Santiago, 10th Grade
