I dont recommend pixton because it advertizes politics when it should not, it also doesnt teach anything to students and the instructions are sometimes complicated when this should be an easy no politics website for children or anyone else.

This product is fantastic!

Pixton Edu is great because it really engages the user. Instead of reading paragraphs and expecting to memorize a bunch of dates, this product turn it into an action comic book. Children love cartoons and this is a great way to appeal to them.

Difficult and complicated to use. Kids did not like to make the effort to figure it out.

WARNING SCAM: Will keep charging you after you cancel your subscription!!!!!

Tool was great, but I am not a fan of getting scammed out of my money..... so overall, downloading it was a bad choice. Not worth the hassle and the extra charges.

Students show their learning with Animation

It is a great tool that allows students to show their learning in a creative way. I like all the teacher tools built in. I like that students can customize their characters. It is quite a robust program, so it does take time to learn all that it offers.

Great alternative for storytelling.

I thought this was a great website for students to use their imaginations to create an original story. From a teacher aspect, it was easy to get the students set up in an account. I also like how the students work is submitted to me prior to it being released to the rest of the class. This feature also allows me to read it before hand and send back their projects with suggestions even when I am not in class! Makes grading a lot easier!

Use comics to demonstrate mastery!

I really like Pixton for a few reasons. It is a few clicks of the mouse to set up a class account, and it is very simple for the students to join our class. I also love that they technically don't need to share anything with me since I can view all of my students' works in my class account. My students were able to fly through creating comics with these. Because the interface is pretty user-friendly, they could focus most on content which is what is important to me. Students have a lot of creative license with this tool. This isn't the greatest tool for students who need extra support, however. There are so many options that these students can get lost easily and sometimes aren't sure where to begin.

Make thinking visible and comical with comics-creation app

Pixton is a great way to infuse creativity and higher-order thinking skills through comic creation. Students get to change the setting, choose their characters, and add text. I like that when I gave it as an assignment to an advanced group of students they needed no step by step instruction as they were able to jump right in and start creating. Student projects can be printed and shared with other classes or shared online. When sharing them with a larger audience, we noticed that students did a much better job on their work. There are many ways I can see teachers using Pixton in the classroom.
