Using Wixie in the Primary Classroom

#wixechat Thursday, October 22, 7pm ET

If you already a Wixie user, or just thinking about becoming one, join the upcoming Howard County #wixiechat! HCPSS educators and Wixie power users Carrie Trudden (@truddentech) and Laura Hook (@lbhooktech) will be leading the chat on Twitter. 

Wixie lets students share their knowledge and ideas through text, images, and voice recording. I like to think of Wixie as a digital canvas for students in K-2 classrooms. 

Integrating technology in the early grades provides special challenges and special opportunities. Join the #wixiechat to see how other primary-grade educators are using Wixie to help students build literacy and explore the curriculum.

Questions for the October 22nd #wixiechat

  1. How do you get primary students to log in successfully on their own?
  2. How do you introduce Wixie to your students?
  3. What is your favorite primary project?
  4. What are your favorite tools to use with primary students?
  5. Do you prefer a Wixie template or starting from a blank page?
  6. How do you share student work with parents and family members?

Use these questions to prepare your tweets in advance! Don't forget to include the #wixiechat hashtag.

If you link to student work, be sure it isn't password protected and that you have student/parent permission to share.

See you there!
