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.

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

Media Specialist in Flemington, New Jersey

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.

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.

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.

– Ms. Martin, 5th Grade

Teacher in Spain

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

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

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

Doylestown, Pennsylvania

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

Teacher in New Albany, Indiana

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

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

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.
