LHRIC has partnered with Tech4Learning in support of Wixie, the cloud-based learning solution for developing meaningful curriculum projects, where students in grades K-5 use the digital canvas to develop skills in the 4C's. Join us for the webinar and see how students use Wixie to bring their words, their voice, and their art to the curriculum. Presented by Denise MacDevette, NYS Manager Tech4Learning, and Al Lovelace, Byram Hills CSD.
• Communication: Students write, narrate, illustrate, diagram, and design their own ebooks, public service announcements, trading cards, comics, and more, building media literacy skills essential to life in the 21st century.
• Critical Thinking: Promotes deep thinking and moves students away from providing answers they have simply copied and pasted from other sources.
• Collaboration: Having students work together to achieve a goal helps them recognize the value of the contributions and perspectives of all team members and prepares them for life in the 21st century.
• Creativity: Transfer responsibility for learning and demonstrations of that learning, by asking students to take control of the process and project design.
Because Wixie works in the cloud, students can start a project at school and finish working on it at home. Wixie runs on multiple platforms and devices.
Powerful teacher tools for assigning, assessing, and commenting on student projects eliminate the need to manage files or turn in work.
Currently ten LHRIC component districts are integrating Wixie into their curriculum. See what all the buzz is about, and join us to be Wowed by Wixie and its integration in Byram Hills!
