Tech4Learning’s Wixie is now available for Kindle Fire HD tablets through the Amazon Appstore. The app is free for Wixie subscribers. The Wixie app for Kindle Fire HD takes advantage of authoring on the tablet’s touch interface, while connecting to storage, classroom management, and assessment tools in the cloud.
Wixie is an online authoring tool students can use to explore the curriculum through a combination of text, original artwork, voice narration, and images. Projects are stored in the cloud, making it easy for students to move between devices, teachers to evaluate student work, and schools to share projects with family and community.
“We are working to make Wixie available to as many users as possible. Developing an app for the Kindle Fire HD is essential to our goal of providing powerful tools and a wide audience for student work,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.
“Creating and communicating ideas is essential to success in our digital age, shares Melinda Kolk, Director of Professional Learning. “From the computers at school and the local library to the tablet a family has chosen to buy, Wixie offers an opportunity for anytime, anywhere learning in which students are creating and not simply consuming information.”
