How I Use It
My students starting making comics and quickly noticed the maneuverability of a virtual characters. The comic strips were easy and quick to create. A high quality comic strip can be created in 20 minutes. I used the pixton as an assessment tool for students to show their understanding and comprehesion of literay devices and literature terms.
My Take
Take Bitstrips, add more pictures ( pixton's database is awesome) add more physical controls for student's virtual character and you got pixton.com!
