Wixie is the perfect tool for passion projects

Posted by Melinda Kolk on May 2, 2019 3:08:42 PM

Inspired by Google’s 20% time, many educators are implementing a Genius Hour in their classrooms. While play and exploration are driving factors, the most powerful passion projects ask students to make or create something to give their work purpose. Passion projects provide an opportunity for students to practice inquiry, research, presentation in the context of a topic they have chosen and for teachers to step back and support learners as they choose what and how they want to learn.

Wixie is the perfect tool for passion projects, providing a platform for students to combine text, images, and voice narration to share their ideas and learning. Teachers can use the templates and organizers in Wixie to coach and support students through the passion project process and provide feedback as they are working through Wixie's comment options.
