Award of ExcellenceTech4Learning’s Wixie wins an Award of Excellence in Tech & Learning magazine's prestigious 30-year-old recognition program that awards "innovative applications that break new ground." Over 160 entries were put to the test by Tech & Learning's experienced educational team of judges.

Wixie is an online authoring tool students can use to explore the curriculum through a combination of text, original artwork, voice narration, and images. Projects are stored in the cloud, making it easy for students to move between devices, teachers to evaluate student work, and schools to share projects with family and community.

“Because Wixie is a cloud-based product, we constantly improve the tools for students and teachers,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning. “Recently we have been working to ensure Wixie runs on iPads, Android tablets, Kindle Fire HDs, Chromebooks, and PCs running Windows or OSX." 

Wixie - author in the cloud“I have been a long time fan and user of Pixie and love how we can create the same projects online with Wixie,” shares Katy Hammack, a 3rd grade teacher in Santee, California. “Now our students work on assignments and digital stories on their iPads, classroom laptops, or computers at home, allowing us to enable anytime, anywhere learning.”
