Wixie release integrates Common Core Standards

Tech4Learning has released an update to Wixie that makes it easy to track student progress toward achievement of Common Core Standards.  Wixie is an authoring tool students can use to paint pictures, write stories, and record their voice to explore the curriculum and demonstrate mastery.

With the update, teachers can assign activities specific to Common Core Standards and attach Common Core Standards to student projects in Wixie. Teachers can track progress towards the standards and assign activities to individual students in order to develop mastery.

“Hundreds of the activities in Wixie have been correlated to Common Core Standards,” shares Melinda Kolk, Director of Curriculum Development at Tech4Learning, “and Wixie’s new management tools make it easy for teachers and administrators to view and evaluate student work, and differentiate instruction as students progress toward mastery of these standards.”

“With the addition of the Common Core Standards, Wixie continues to evolve as a core curriculum product, instead of nice to have technology supplement,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.

Because Wixie is a cloud-based product, the Common Core integration with Wixie is immediately available to all current Wixie subscribers.
