The Baltimore County Board of Education has approved a contract with Tech4Learning to provide elementary and middle school students throughout the county with access to Wixie as part of the BCPS S.T.A.T (Students & Teachers Accessing Technology) initiative.

Wixie is a publishing and creativity platform used by students to demonstrate their content knowledge and showcase their creativity. Students can access Wixie online from school or home on a wide variety of devices. BCPS One supports the Instructional Digital Conversion at Baltimore County Public Schools whereby all students will be able to engage and access personalized learning in the classroom using electronic devices.

"Baltimore County is excited to expand our long-standing relationship with Tech4Learning by providing access to Wixie for all of our elementary and middle schools students.  Wixie is the ideal tool for our students to use to demonstrate creativity and share learning," shares Ryan Imbriale, Executive Director of the Department of Digital Learning at Baltimore County Public Schools.

The contract between BCPS and Tech4learning will provide for access to Wixie to students for the next 10 years. “Tech4Learning is thrilled that we will continue to be a part of the BCPS student experience as they migrate to digital learning,” said David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.

Wixie will be integrated with the BCPS One learning management system to provide a seamless experience to students with content, resources, and creativity.
