Pixton is a website where students can create their own comics to share stories or summarize what they have learned.



Educators and students can sign up for free basic Pixton accounts to create comics for creative writing or to share their learning in new ways. Students or educators can sign up using their Google, Microsoft, or Facebook accounts. Teachers who sign up can build a classroom and invite their students. Students also have the choice to create an account independently. There is a library of free options with paid subscription offers that unlock more content. Comics can be shared digitally through a link, downloaded as an image and inserted into any content, or printed. Teacher accounts also include additional printable resources for the classroom.
