Whether you're new to Wixie, or you remember it from a few years ago, let's get started with an introductory video:
How do I log in?
Both students and teachers log in to Wixie with their Google accounts, so there's no need to remember a user name or password (yay!). Simply, click on the log in with Google button @wixie.com and as long as you're logged into your email, you'll be able to access your account. How easy is that!
Where do I get started?
A great place to get started with Wixie is to visit their training page @https://www.wixie.com/training. Wixie calls their tips "snacks," and you'll find these organized by topic.
The next place you'll want to visit is the Tech4Learning activity library. Here, you will find pre-made lessons and activities to use with your students. You can choose a subject and look for a lesson that correlates to that topic.
Each activity description shows a screenshot of the activity, suggests the grade levels it might be appropriate for, gives a short description, and lists the standards associated with the activitiy. Once you find an activity, you can choose to customize it or assign it as is to your students under the actions button.
After you've explored the activities, you may be ready to give an assessment. You can make your own, or browse Wixie's assessment library.
When you view an assessment, you'll be shown the rubric. You can choose to assign as is, or make changes to the rubric before assigning it. Students will use the rubric to guide them as they create their Wixie projects.
