Connect school to home by sharing student's Wixie projects

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Nov 4, 2019 1:25:30 PM

Wixie provides students with a digital canvas they can use to share ideas and communicate their understanding. Wixie works online so it is easy to share student work and give families a window into their child's classroom learning. 

Depending on how you want to share, you can:

  • embed student projects on your classroom or school website,
  • email parents a direct link to a student project,
  • empower students with the knowledge and skills to log in when they are away from school.

To share a student project, log in to your Wixie account.

At your teacher home page, click the Students button and select the name of the student whose work you want to share.

Click the specific project you want to share and then select the Share button to the right of the project.

You will see the Share dialog.

All Wixie projects get a unique web address, which you can see in the field at the top of the Share dialog or in your browser's address bar.

Use the Copy URL button to share this address as a link to the project via email, social media, or in a classroom newsletter.

You can also use the fields at this dialog to write and send an email to a parent or family member directly, including a personalized message.

Parents simply click the link in their email to view their child's work, even from their cell phone.

If you want to share the project on a classroom or school website, use the Copy Embed button to get the HTML source code you need.

Put students in charge of sharing

If families in your classroom access the Web on devices at home or at their local library, empower your students with the knowledge and skills to log in to Wixie on their own from devices outside of school.

If students log in with a username and password, you can use the Wixie Logins template in the Templates>Teacher folder to create printed instructions students can take home. If you use Clever or Google, students can follow the same steps they use at school to log in at home.

Let parents know about the resources at the Parent Page for Wixie, such as Wixie guides that provide parents with ideas for students in grades K-5.

No matter how you choose to share, Wixie can help you celebrate student learning and forge strong connections with families and caregivers. Use your student's enthusiasm for Wixie to inspire their family to learn with them.
