There are many treasures in the Wixie Training tab, and one of them is the Wixie Letter to Parents. The letter explains to the parents that Wixie is being used by your school, the devices Wixie runs…Continue
I have had a lot of calls lately about the Wixie class assignments. It's kind of confusing. If you have multiple classes assigned to you, and you assign an activity to all students in that class, it…Continue
I love working with the great educators that use Tech4Learning products and am very thankful for the 21st Century work atmosphere that lets me do this from the comfort of my own home. (Or discomfort when my son is home). I believe in celebrating creativity and the many successes in the classroom. My role as Integration Specialist leans more towards helping those with Wixie and K12Share accounts getting them set up, ready for implementation and integration. However, I love when Lindie has a training opportunity or a special focus project for me to work on, especially if it means connecting with teachers or helping to create guides that you can use in your curriculum.
One of the fun things I like to do with Wixie and Pixie is create printables. My son and I made his special shirt for a comic convention using Pixie and this summer I made a bunch of earrings using with our tools and Shrinky Dinks. My niece and I just used math skills to help design a necklace for her dance team with their logo using Pixie. It was quite fun!
We're comic freaks in this household, and comics can definitely make learning more fun. The first weekend of May we have a big comic book hero, Spider-Man, coming out in the movies and then Free Comic Book Day on the 3rd. (Check out celebrations at your local Comic Book Store!)
But hold on, I'm getting…Continue

Have you ever felt like Friday (or other day) was acting like a Monday? I normally don't have an issue with Mondays. I like what I do and so I don't "dread going to work". I think life of nothing but weekends would be boring and unbalanced. But hey, I work for Tech4Learning, so of course I feel that way.
My son just called. He's having a bad day.
"Someone stole my money.
I can't eat lunch today.
Are you sure it's Friday?"
That was strike one. I talked to…Continue

Tech4Learning celebrates teachers who help students see the vitality in themselves daily, whether…Continue
