Student Made Comics with Pixton

24 March 2009 2 Comments

@justinreeve made an interesting tweet today about a service called Pixton, and said that he could see students using it to demonstrate knowledge. After checking it out, I totally agree. Pixton is another comic book creator type website, similar to others around. But, I like this one a lot better. It seems as if everything is a lot more customizable and simple. Clicking on parts of the body brings up tools that will help you move and animate them, while clicking on objects gives you different sets of tools. Just about everything is clickable, zoomable, etc… Of course you have the sign up to take care of with your students, but once they created their work of art, they can be shared and redone. Here’s an example.

Looks like they have a fee based Schools version that gives you a more secure, private setting for making them. I’ll check it out later and report back on the difference.

    I teach elementary school and this product would be useful in my classroom. The simple design with drag and clicks is exactly like creating an avatar for a video game. This program could be integrated with writing a story or poem. I want to investigate the cost of this product for my classroom.
