I found this program an excellent tool in checking the students' writing ability concerning proper grammar, punctuation, and the use of different literary techniques.
– Ms. Roberts, 8th Grade 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 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.
– Ms. Grieve
It was a fantastic and easy to use learning tool which kept all my students engaged.
– Mr. McGillicuddy, Grade 3
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
Absolutely brilliant software, great as a teaching and learning tool.
– Jutka Czirok, 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
Pixton for Schools was one of the best teaching tools I could have used in the classroom. It helped to motivate the students to learn about literature in a new way. We covered everything from plot to characterization and beyond using Pixton.
– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English
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
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
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
I LOVED Pixton for Schools! My students LOVED it. It was so easy to differentiate for my varying levels of learners. As they worked on projects they were actually having fun, laughing, and learning content – a teacher's dream!
– Liz L., teacher
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 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.
– Amy James on CBS News9
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 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 has just worked flawlessly. It's pretty clear that you "get" education. There are so many nice touches that make life easy for teachers.
– Mr. Vogel, ICT / Physics Teacher
It motivated the students to do their work. I used it to have them illustrate literary vocabulary.
– Ms. Bushby, 6th Grade
Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.
– Mr. Gray, Grade 11
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
It is an incredible product. I have been creating a database of teacher websites and this product really stands out.
– Teachers First
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
Students gave considerable thought to story structure and sequencing. They enjoyed working on their projects in class and at home.
– Mr. Memmott, Computers Teacher
It helped my students to better understand the play we were reading in class.
– Ms. Baran, 11th 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 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
Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.
– Ms. Parker, Teacher
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
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
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
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
Fantastic creative way to present OCR Science information. Pixton improved students literacy and understanding.
– Mr. Coles, Teacher
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
Pixton was relatively easy to use for my students. I teach a self-contained special education class, and my students really enjoyed showing off to their non-disabled peers. I also liked the submission feature which allowed to be to send feedback straight back to them.
– Ms. Alessi
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
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
