Testimonials

The kids were very engaged and were learning skills like sequencing, sentence structure and story building while having a great time.

– Ms. Stein, 6th Grade English

Teacher in Minnesota

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

Teacher in Miami, Florida

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

Bradford, United Kingdom

My students that don't normally want to write, were writing dialogue and loving it. After they completed their assignment on bullying prevention, they created other comics on different topics on their own. Comics are another form of writing, with a twist that students enjoy.

– Ms. Trella, 7th Grade

Teacher in Youngstown, Ohio

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

Teacher in Leonardtown, Maryland

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!

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

Languages Teacher in Australia

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

Teacher in Deer Lake, Newfoundland

Highly engaging, easy to use software with clever functions allowing me to review and feedback to my class. I can think of loads of ways it could be used to demonstrate and evidence learning.

– Ms. Pulleine, Year 3 English

Teacher in Devon, UK

It allowed an alternate form of a unit project for a set of English classes. The teacher and students were very excited about using it and enjoyed the process.

– Mr. DiSalvo, Tech Specialist

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

King City, California

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

Vancouver, British Columbia

On-task time during class was incredibly high, and all the students enjoyed sharing their comics on the Smartboard with the rest of the class. It is amazing how these tech-native students quickly master this medium.

– Ms. Gatheridge, 9th Grade

Teacher in Hallock, Minnesota

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

Teacher in Spain

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.

– Mr. Limperis, Technology Facilitator

Lawrence, New Hampshire

Pixton is one of my favorite web tools. I have my students read an informational text and explain it in a comic. It is a rigorous assignment because they must take an informational reading and turn it into a narrative. The kids love it and so do I!

– Ms. Hartman, Technology Integration

Westampton, New Jersey

The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.

– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers

Teacher in Ashbrooke, United Kingdom

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

– Mr. Smith, Teacher

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

Teacher in Mineral, Virginia

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

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

Pixton for Schools was a safe way for students to learn and explore the world of avatars and comic creations. We found it to be the best program because it would save/export in a number of different formats!

– Ms. Berg, 6th Grade Math Teacher

Sunnyvale, California

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

Teacher in Winder, Georgia,

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

Teacher in Melbourne, Australia

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

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

Saint Joseph, Missouri

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

Teacher in Longmeadhow, Massachusetts

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!
