Tech4Learning’s Wixie is now available for Android tablets through the Google Play store. The app is free for Wixie subscribers. The new Wixie app for Android takes advantage of authoring on the tablet’s touch interface, while connecting to storage, classroom management, portfolio, and assessment tools in the cloud.

WixieWixie is an authoring tool students can use to paint pictures, write stories, and record their voice to explore the curriculum and demonstrate mastery. Projects are stored in the cloud, making it easy for students to share  rojects with family and community.

“We are working to make Wixie available to as many users as possible. With the growing 1:1 initiatives that use affordable Android tablets, having an app for these devices, as well as the iPad, is essential to our goal of providing powerful tools and a wide audience for student work,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.
