Pixton – animated comics

While looking through Brendan Luck’s Blog, I noticed he wrote about draw a stickman. I like this type of medium to get children using their creativity to create stories or presentations, and I started looking into other resources which would do the same thing. I was looking through my Edmodo (see this post to find out more) account and came across a resource called Pixton. This is a site that is set up for individuals to make their own comic strips, but there is also an area specifically designed for teachers and students, there is a video on this page which explains the benefits of using Pixton in your classroom . This page gives reasons as to why Pixton is ‘Pedagogically Interesting’.

The only problem I have with this is the amount of time you would have to spend getting students familiar with the way this site works and not spend more time playing with the characters, then on inputting the information that they are meant to be presenting, but that is the same with any new resource, I suppose, and once they knew what they were doing it would work faster.
