Pixton just may be the best digital storytelling application yet

  
  
  

digital storytellingIf you’ve followed our blog, it’s no secret that we’re fans of using digital storytelling apps and comic book generators in the classroom. While there are dozens of useful applications out there, this morning we stumbled upon what just may be the holy grail of comic book generators: a nifty little application called Pixton.

Unlike most comic book generators—which have limited flexibility—Pixton allows users to completely customize their work: Choose from a wide variety of characters, change their facial expressions, shrink them, enlarge them, and rotate and shift their body movements. This only scratches the surface of what you can do with this app. Whether you’re zooming in and out of panels, swapping out background images, adding props, speech bubbles or text, everything is as simple as drag and drop.

Free accounts are available, but you’ll have to put up with advertisements and you won’t be able to print and download the final product. Upgrades begin at $8/month.

To learn more about how you can use digital storytelling in the classroom, watch the video below.
