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
Pixton for Schools is wonderful! We accomplished quite a stunning looking project. The kids had so much fun using the product and they saw the stories that they covered in a whole new light.
– Ms. Dempsey, 12th Grade 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 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 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
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 for Schools combines the freedom to create with a set of choices that students can explore. This gives all students, even those who don't believe they are creative, the ability to be engaged. Pixton is affordable, simple, intuitive, and most of all, great fun for students.
– David Damico, Executive Director
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
Many of my students enjoyed having the opportunity to earn "class participation points" by creating comics based on science concepts we've studied throughout the year. Some students created comics to help them process what they were learning in the current unit of study.
– Ms. Abrams, Teacher
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
Very easy to use and manipulate the characters. Students enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression in the characters.
– Mr. Daniels, 7th Grade Science Teacher
It was a fantastic and easy to use learning tool which kept all my students engaged.
– Mr. McGillicuddy, Grade 3
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
My students loved this program. We used two other comic programs this year but this was by far the best and gave them the chance to do so much and be so creative and add nuance to their stories like no other.
– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade
Fantastic creative way to present OCR Science information. Pixton improved students literacy and understanding.
– Mr. Coles, Teacher
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
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
It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.
– Ms. Hawlicki, Grade 8
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
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
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
Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.
– Keri Green
Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.
– Ms. Parker, Teacher
We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
– Mr. Smith, Teacher
Pixton enabled my students to present their understandings of environmental issues in creative and exciting ways. Students were engaged throughout the process and the functionality was simple but also enabled detailed customisation for those students that wanted to extend themselves.
– Mr. Fitz, Grade 3 English
It allowed my students to grasp a better understanding of what dialogue is all about and how to use/write it.
– Mr. Jette, 10th 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
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.
– Steven Schneiderman
Pixton was awesome, my students loved it!
– Mr. Gale, Teacher
My ESL students used this to show humor across languages and cultures. They loved it!

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.

Kids really enjoyed working on the comics, even out of school.
– Mr. Riehle, 7th Grade Teacher
It is an incredible product. I have been creating a database of teacher websites and this product really stands out.

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.
– Mr. Tulk, Grade 10 English
Pixton for Schools inspired the students to be creative in ways I never thought I'd see. They took difficult concepts and expressed themselves very well.
– Mr. Brecht, 4th Grade Teacher
Our students were engaged and excited about their presentations. The comic format motivated our students and provided them the opportunity to use and develop many computer skills as well as their Science knowledge.
