Build digital-age communication skills with Wixie

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jan 23, 2019 8:45:04 AM

In order to be full participants in today's rapidly-changing world, students need to be media producers, not just consumers. Asking students to create with digital tools provides an authentic opportunity for them to not only engage with curriculum content (3R's), but also also build essential digital-age skills (4C's). Sharing student work with the world beyond the classroom gives students a reason to care and a motivation to work hard.

Wixie makes it easy to create and share a range of digital and print products that demonstrate their learning. Wixie works online so student work can be shared instantly through a URL. Student work can also be exported for use as authentic print and digital products.
