How to use it?

I use Pixton as a tool to measure students communication skills to apply scientific knolwedge, skills, and principals about environmental change in Social Studies.

1.We discussed some environmental problems and pollution. Students designed collaborative slide using Google Slide:

2.As part of application, we designed a comic to campaign the importance of environmental awareness. Below are some photos documentation of my students completing their Pixton in Sampoerna Academy, Jakarta, Indonesia :

Here’s my sample of my students comic :

Finally, I am positive Pixton is one of the most effective tools to give students opportunity apply and visualize their understanding to meaningful context that could inspire people.
