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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
What a great website! It's so creative and fun. I love the colors, the styles, all the options for creating comics. It's something that I looked forward to spending time on, because ideas come at different times. Terrific!
– iParenting Media Awards' Reviewer
The kids loved it, and it was a user-friendly way of sending important Student Council messages to others in the school. The students were able to make simple comics, but they could also spend more time to create more complex ones.
– Ms. Levy, Teacher
The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.
– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers
My ESL students used this to show humor across languages and cultures. They loved it!
– Ms. Smith, ESL
Pixton provided a fun, creative outlet for students to demonstrate their understanding. of the Earth's movement around the sun. Our boys and girls were excited about their projects.
– Ms. Muncy, Grade 4 Science
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
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
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
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
Pixton was excellent! The students absolutely loved it and were really engaged in exploring the program and showing off their new skills. It just has so much potential.
– Ms. Harris, Technology
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
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
It helped me provide a creative outlet for my students so that they could showcase their literary skills in an interesting format.
– Ms. Ballard, 12th Grade
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
The students really enjoyed using it to demonstrate what they had learnt and the assessment was really easy to use.
– Mr. Wilshaw, 11th Grade
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
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
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
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
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
The students loved it! They were totally engaged!
– Ms. Gouthro, Grade 5 English
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
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
It helped my students to better understand the play we were reading in class.
– Ms. Baran, 11th Grade
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 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
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
