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 LOVE seeing the projects that all of you have shared over the years of your student and personal projects.
We have a YouTube Channel that would make finding these projects even easier by anyone interested in learning more about…Continue
Last week I was fortunate to attend GAETC. It's one of my favorite state level conferences. The teachers do a fabulous

We had a lot of fun sharing the great projects her students have created. One of the activities that she had the audience do is pull up an app that allowed them to take notes, another that allows you…Continue
My son has to do a 100 Math Terms booklet. Fun times, and trust me I have a rant about something the teacher said to me about the whole project. I'll save that for next week. Anyway, Joey started the project in Wixie. We figured we'd create 3 files. Two files of 50 words and then a file with the cover, reference page and notes.
But last weekend we were driving to South Carolina, and I don't have Internet in my car. Therefore, we moved it out to Pixie on his laptop. He worked…Continue
I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that they are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
I love back to school time! Spirits are always full of ideas, energy is renewed and…Continue
