Wixie is the perfect tool for self-expression. Having students create a custom profile image is a fun way for them to personalize their learning while learning how to use the paint tools in Wixie. Profile images that are all unique will make it easier for you to visually locate student work the rest of the year.
The Wixie user profile image shows in the upper right corner next to the log out button.
Paint a Picture for your Profile Image
Have students log in to their Wixie account. Then, have them use the New button and select Landscape.
They can then use the tools to paint a picture of themselves or something they love.
Once they are done, go to the Edit menu and choose Make Profile Image!
The profile image the students created will be visible to them the next time they log into Wixie.
Assign the Profile Image Activity
Wixie captures what is displayed in the middle of the page when it creates the profile image. If you think your students may have difficulty with this concept, you can assign the Profile Image template to make this concept more visual.
Log in to your Wixie teacher account and type profile in the field at the top. Click the magnifying glass on the right side of this field to see files that match this search criteria.
Click the three dots next to the Profile Image template and choose Assign. At the dialog, select All Students and choose the date range you want it to display at the top of your student's home page when they log in to Wixie
Students can open this file and use the tools to paint a picture in the white circle, which is the space that will show in the user profile icon.
Once they are done, have students go to the Edit menu and choose Make Profile Image. And, voila, the next time they log in they will see their profile creations.
You will see their custom profile icons in your student list as well!
