How I Use It

I ask all my college students to re-mediate one of their essays into digital form via glogster, prezi, and the like.

Now Pixton is going on the list.

Meanwhile, I'm showing my 16 year old son how to use it so he can make a comic for history class.

My Take

This is a fantastic teaching tool.

They say that teaching a concept is the best way to learn it.

Well, having students translate a concept to comic form is the best way to have them teach themselves and use creativity and teamwork in the bargain.
