New Comic Creation Tool



The Ministry is pleased to announce that Pixton Comics has been licensed for use by all publicly funded schools across the province. Similar to Bitstrips, Pixton is an online comic creation tool that serves as a digital storytelling tool for students. 

Highlights 

  • Students and teachers can make comic strips, storyboards, character maps, and more. 
  • Presets include 3000 backgrounds, 2000 props, 700 characters, 300 poses and expressions. 
  • Teachers can access a library of lesson plans and activity templates for all subject areas.
