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.
– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English
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.
– Mr. Klingeman, 9th Grade Teacher
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
It was a fantastic and easy to use learning tool which kept all my students engaged.
– Mr. McGillicuddy, Grade 3
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
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
Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.
– Mr. Gray, Grade 11
We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!
– Ms. Butler, Teacher
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
It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.
– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade
Pixton was awesome, my students loved it!
– Mr. Gale, Teacher
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
I teach gifted students. They loved Pixton! This was a great new medium for them to get creative.
– Ms. Mattingly, 4th / 5th Grade
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
Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.
– Ms. Parker, Teacher
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.
– Christy Crawford, Technology
The students loved it! They were totally engaged!
– Ms. Gouthro, Grade 5 English
Pixton for Schools gave my students a creative way to utilize their research and a more enjoyable way to document information.
– Ms. Sasscer, Teacher
Pixton was great fun and really got the pupils engaged. Through creative presentation they produced some high quality understanding of the topic.
– Ms. Martin, Grade 9 Arts
A mind blowing, game changing and all around awesome web-based comic strip generation tool. Following in the footsteps of Flickr, YouTube and Twitter, Pixton is poised to join the short list of cutting-edge, top-tier and truly innovative social web tools.
– Derek E. Baird
Students were able to write and share their writing in a motivating way.
– Mr. Rand, 8th Grade Technology
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
I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.
– Ms. Page-Scott, Grade 6
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
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
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
Teaching Shakespeare in our middle school is always a challenge. Pixton comics provided motivation for comprehension. Thanks for such an awesome website for creativity.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
Very interesting and useful tool. Our students were really motivated and looking forward to having their Arts lesson.
– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher
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 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
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
It's a great tool for having my students summarize lessons. I love it!
– Ms. Balk, 12th Grade Tech
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
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
Pixton for Schools was great! Students had a creative way to demonstrate their knowledge and practice their technology skills. Your customer service is awesome!
– Ms. Anderson, 8th Grade Computers
The students were highly motivated and carried out activities assigned to them with great interest.
– Mr. Ferrer, Grade 12
