#wixiechat: Wixie in the ELA Curriculum: Thursday-January 21-7pm ET

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jan 11, 2016 1:23:48 PM

Wixie

#wixechat Thursday, January28, 7pm ET

If you already a Wixie user, or just thinking about becoming one, join the upcoming #wixiechat! Maryland educators and Wixie power users Carrie Trudden (@truddentech) and Laura Hook (@lbhooktech) will be leading this chat on Using Wixie in the ELA Curriculum.

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-8 classrooms. 

Join the #wixiechat to see how other educators are using Wixie to foster student engagement!

Questions for the January 28th #wixiechat

  1. What type of Wixie projects enable students to demonstrate understanding of vocabulary?

  2. What are some creative ways that you use Wixie to support the development of comprehension strategies such as activating prior knowledge, predicting, summarizing, etc.?

  3. How do you use Wixie to help develop writing skills in your classroom?

  4. Reading Literature and Informational Text is an important component in the ELA classroom.  How do you use Wixie to support this?

  5. How have you incorporated Wixie into your Daily 5 or CAFE Instruction?

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!
