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.

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!

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.

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

Teacher in Miami, 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!

Westampton, New Jersey

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.

We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.

– Mr. Smith, Teacher

Summerville, South Carolina

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

Teacher in Hallock, Minnesota

My students enjoyed being creative with Pixton for Schools. We also like that you don't need to install it onto computers in the school. The online nature of it makes it so easy.

– Ms. Hill, Grade 7

Languages Teacher in Australia

It's a great tool for having my students summarize lessons. I love it!

– Ms. Balk, 12th Grade Tech

Teacher in Clayton, New York

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

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.

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

Teacher in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania

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.

– Mr. DiSalvo, Tech Specialist

The kids were very engaged and were learning skills like sequencing, sentence structure and story building while having a great time.

My French Immersion students were very engaged in creating comic strips of their life story. We then downloaded the strips and showed them through a projector while the student gave an oral presentation on their life to date.

– Ms. Charbonneau, Grade 9

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

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

Teacher Advisor at Scholastic.com

Pixton is wonderful. My students are using it to tell the stories of Edgar Allen Poe. Retelling the stories in Pixton has created an interest I had not seen before. It is wonderful!

– Ms. Sorrell, 6th Grade

Technology Coordinator in Chicago, Illinois

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

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

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

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

Teacher in National Park, New Jersey

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

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

Teacher in Devon, UK

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

Teacher in Warrington, Pennsylvania

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

Teacher in Jasper, Georgia

Pixton has just worked flawlessly. It's pretty clear that you "get" education. There are so many nice touches that make life easy for teachers.

Pixton for Schools gave my students a creative way to utilize their research and a more enjoyable way to document information.

– Ms. Sasscer, Teacher

Owings, Maryland

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

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
