Pixton empowers the world to communicate graphically by introducing Click-n-Drag Comics™, a revolutionary new patented technology that gives anyone the power to create amazing comics on the web.

Tap into the power of comics to capture your students’ attention and imagination. From fully posable characters to over 4,000 backgrounds, 3,000 props, and 700 subject-specific comic templates, every aspect of a comic can be controlled in an intuitive click-n-drag motion.

Writing shouldn’t be a chore, or a bore! Comics make the writing process so much more than slaving over a page. And the very structure of comics requires students to master clear and concise communication.

Have your students create comics to demonstrate their understanding of your lessons. Use Pixton’s interactive rubrics for easy and thorough assessment. Students can even assess themselves!

I used this tool with my 5th graders. They loved it. It took little time to “play” with the options and create comics. Some would use it during a brief study hall on their own.

I used it as a form of assessment. Students used their creativity to build a cartoon summarizing what they had learned. I would recommend it. I’d used other cartoon building sites, and prefer this one, as did my students.
