Pixie appTech4Learning’s Pixie is now available for Android tablets through the Google Play store. Millions of students use Pixie on their computers, and now they can use Pixie on their Android tablets to create and share their ideas and explore the curriculum.

Pixie is standard creativity software on elementary computers in districts across the United States. Pixie provides tools students can use to combine text, original artwork, voice narration and images to communicate knowledge and ideas. Pixie is the perfect tool for digital age learning with built-in activities for Common Core and tools to create comics and trading cards, digital storytelling videos, and curriculum-related HTML slideshows.

Research has shown that students using Pixie perform significantly better in Reading and Math. We want to ensure Pixie is still available to students as parents and schools migrate from PCs to tablets. With Android’s growing dominance in the worldwide tablet market, and schools moving towards 1:1 technology, the Pixie app for Android makes sure students continue to have powerful creativity tools,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.

“Because the Pixie app includes the same tools, features, and interface as the desktop version, it is easy for students and teachers to simply pick up a new device and continue the work they have been doing,” shares Melinda Kolk, Director of Professional Learning for Tech4Learning.  “Students have been writing, illustrating, designing, and creating in Pixie on computers at school and now they can continue working on new tablets they have at home or school.”

The Pixie app for iPad released in March 2013. To learn more about using Pixie on tablets, visit the Tech4Learning web site at:
