Pixton - Online Comic Writing Website

Pixton is an online comic writing website. The possibilities with this in every subject are endless.

What a great tool to engage students through comics!

Students or teachers can make comics, posters and more! Make a comic together as a class with the teacher's account.

The public version is free. The educator version is a little more secure and offers a free 14 day trial, but then it is a paid service. With the educator version, you can give students a passcode so they don't need an email to login.

Alternatively, this would be great to offer students that have home email access as a choice for a project.
