Wixie Update - Helping teachers and students

Posted by David Wagner on Nov 16, 2022 12:02:50 PM

The latest Wixie update has 2 new features designed to make it easier to learn and use Wixie.

Project List

The latest Wixie update helps students who have multiple teachers assigning Wixie projects know who assigned the work to them.

When working in Standard theme, students will see their teacher’s name on each assignment in the list and on work that they have already started.

In Primary theme, students will see their teacher’s profile image.

Teachers can customize the name that is displayed to students on their Settings page.

Click the Account icon in the upper right corner of the page and choose Settings.

Change the Display name to the name you would like your students to see.

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.
