It helped my students to better understand the play we were reading in class.
– Ms. Baran, 11th Grade
The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.
– Mr. Wilshaw, 11th 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
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
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
It's a great tool for having my students summarize lessons. I love it!
– Ms. Balk, 12th Grade Tech
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
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
Pixton for Schools gave my class a challenge to put together their narrative writing into comic form, but also gave them great satisfaction and enjoyment in being able to produce something unique and creative.
– Ms. Shaw, Year 7
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
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
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 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.
– Amy James on CBS News9
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
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
We used Pixton for pragmatics (social language and problem solving) because of the intricate features it offers for character's body language and facial expressions. It helped my students (who have written expression deficits) get EXCITED about storytelling.
– Mrs. Kemper
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
It motivated the students to do their work. I used it to have them illustrate literary vocabulary.
– Ms. Bushby, 6th 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
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
Pixton for Schools was a great way for students to practice written dialogue using the Spanish phrases we learned in class. I also loved the feature that allowed me to create a rubric on the site, use it for grading, and have students self-evaluate with the same rubric.
– Ms. Perez, 10th Grade Spanish
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
Students were able to write and share their writing in a motivating way.
– Mr. Rand, 8th Grade Technology
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
Pixton for Schools was a fantastic tool to promote further understanding, application, and authenticity to my LOTE (Languages Other Than English) classroom.
– Ms. Wong, World Languages
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 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 for Schools gave my students a creative way to utilize their research and a more enjoyable way to document information.
– Ms. Sasscer, Teacher
It enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.
– Ms. in't Veld, Teacher-Librarian
Pixton offered my students a creative and fun way to use their communication skills in Spanish.
– Ms. Engel-Aiello, Grade 12
I loved being able to have the student create comics for their Spanish class using their vocabulary! They could be creative and funny, and yet meet the criteria set forth in the assignment.
– Ms. White
It was a fantastic and easy to use learning tool which kept all my students engaged.
– Mr. McGillicuddy, Grade 3
Fantastic creative way to present OCR Science information. Pixton improved students literacy and understanding.
– Mr. Coles, Teacher
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
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.
