Pixie is educational software students use to share their ideas, imagination, and understanding through a combination of text, original artwork, voice narration, and images.

 “Many of our customers are grappling with how best to implement Common Core Standards in a way that addresses 21st century skills,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.  “We put together guides that highlight activities and lessons educators can use to meet the goals of the standards through creative work with technology.”

The Common Core Guides for Pixie include:

  • activities and classroom procedures that meet the new standards for grades K-5,
  • success stories from educators already using Pixie to meet Common Core goals, and
  • creative, high-level lesson plans that engage students and meet multiple standards.

“The guides provide examples of great projects that are already occurring in classrooms around the country,” shared Melinda Kolk, Director of Professional Development. “We hope these stories will inspire even more teachers to engage students in high-level, creative project work.”
