Cloud based Wixie latest to be added to Google Apps for Education
Wixie, Tech4Learning’s popular student creativity tool, is now available as part of Google’s Education App Packs. The newly released Education App Packs are select groups of recommended web apps for different subjects and grade levels. These packs are available in the Google Chrome store and can be installed from the Chromebook management console.
Wixie is a cloud-based authoring tool students can use to paint pictures, write stories, and record their voice to explore the curriculum and demonstrate mastery. Projects are automatically stored in the cloud, making it easy to distribute a URL and passkey for to share Wixie projects with family and the community.
“The integration of educational apps on the Chromebooks provides a simple way for teachers and students to use their Wixie accounts without additional logins or passwords and the inclusion of Wixie in the Chromebook education app packs makes it even easier to deploy Wixie across a school or district,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.
