Wixie includes a host of built-in training materials, including tutorials designed to help students (and teachers) learn to use Wixie independently.
When teachers log in, they can see these resources at the Training tab. Students can access them from the Help option that appears when they click the Wixie button.
The Wixie training resources include Recipes, tutorials that provide step-by-step directions for a project. There are three different tutorials, depending on the level set for the training resources. Users can choose their level based on both reading level and computer experience.
If the content of the tutorial matches what you teach in the classroom, download the PDF and make the project with your students. You could also assign it as a task to be done in-class, as homework, or ask a small cadre of students to complete the tutorials so that they can serve as your Wixie power users and support team.
Don't worry if the content of the tutorial doesn't match your curriculum. Use it to give students a quick set of basic skills, or use the steps in it to build a similar project that does match your curriculum. Here are some ideas for each tutorial to get you started.Read More
