Project Setting - Hide all tools

Posted by David Wagner on Jun 3, 2021 8:00:00 AM

As a follow-up to my blog on the new pencil-only feature in Wixie, there is a similar option to set a project to hide all of the tools. With this setting, students can interact with objects already on the page, like drag them around and add and edit text, but they don’t have access to all of the new object and paint tools. This feature helps teachers deliver formative assessments without the distractions of all of the tools Wixie has to offer.

"Pencil only" setting in Wixie

Posted by David Wagner on Jun 1, 2021 8:03:00 AM

Sometimes, less is more.

Wixie now includes a feature that allows teachers to set a project to make only the pencil tool available to students. When the pencil only option is selected in the project settings, Wixie hides all of the tools except the color palette and instructions, helping to keep students focused on the activity that they are working on. 

Here are some examples of templates from the Wixie curriculum library that demonstrate how this feature will look in action.

Wixie got a major update this summer. 

This has been such an unprecedented year in schools. Wixie usage has doubled and we are seeing Wixie used in more ways and in more classes than ever before! With the change in instruction and increased use, users have made a ton of feature requests.

Wixie’s development is driven by these requests.

This update includes hundreds of little changes focused on teachers using Wixie everyday with students. Improving the workflow, through new features and improvements in interoperability with other tools, is the driving theme in the update.

Here are just a few of the highlights.
