What is Pixton?

Pixton EDU is a web-app that gives teachers and students a unique way to create stories, demonstrate learning, and enhance writing assignments – in any subject – through digital comics. Users can explore topics in Math, Science, Social Studies, History, English, Art or any other subject. Choose images from popular content, books and movies like The Hunger Games or The Outsiders, plus other topics like the solar system, black history or the environment – all Common Core aligned. No drawing skills are required. Pixton EDU levels the playing field with hundreds of preset characters, backgrounds, outfits, poses, and even emotions, all just a click or tap away. Comics can be made and shared in no time, making the classroom experience fun and memorable. It’s also a great tool for distance/remote learning.

Students enjoy the visual fun and creativity of Pixton. It is a great tool, but cannot be used extensively. The tech support is OUTSTANDING! Sidney Main helped me so much, and was prompt and very thorough in their help. Much, much appreciated!

Benedicte Wiggett found Pixton EDU:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Students were very keen to complete the assignment using Pixton, but the toolcannot necessarily be used for all attainment formats.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Student-driven activity. Easy to use, with minimal teacher-input.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Easy to use/self explanitory
  • Not improves school processes
    Not sure what yiu mean by school processes? Attendance? Report cards? no.
  • Not improves teacher wellbeing
    An online tool has very little impact on well being - not in a job that requires the use of so many, many different tools and outcomes and reports.

Teacher, ELA 7

Kraxberger Middle School, United States

Used Pixton EDU for less than 1 month

Oct 2020

This is a great tool for teachers supporting middle schools students who need to tell stories.

Sarah Lennox found Pixton EDU:
  • Slightly improves attainment
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    This allows me to review student work while in progress and support learning while they are working.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Students not being able to see their work after they hit "done" has increased my work. But the system has allowed me to support students who do not excel in art.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    It brings joy into our students day, and makes them excited to learn and engage.
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    My students joyfully engaging into a project helps me teach them and support their learning.
