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.

Anyway, my son asked me why I like that song so much (and if I really had to sing along with the guy since he's getting paid…Continue
There is a French proverb that says, "Gratitude is the heart's memory." As we celebrate the month of Thanksgiving, I reflect upon all of the things that I am grateful for. Of course Tech4Learning remains at the top of the list. I am thankful that we think outside of the testing bubble, and yet our software still meet those CCSS or other curriculum standards. That's right, our teachers…Continue
Today we celebrate Veterans Day. This is a day to say thank you to those that have demonstrated patriotism by willingly serve and even sacrifice for our great nation. Many celebrate with parades, BBQs, and by visiting the final resting spots of soldiers to decorate their graves with flags.
But saying thank you for your service does not have to stop with just one day. Here are two ideas:…Continue
