Tech4Learning’s Pixie app is now available for Kindle Fire HD tablets through the Amazon Appstore for Android. Millions of students use Pixie on their computers, iPads, and Android tablets. Now they can use Pixie on their Kindle Fire HD tablets to create and share their ideas and explore the curriculum.
Pixie is the standard creativity software on elementary computers in schools across the United States and Canada. Pixie provides tools students can use to combine text, original artwork, voice narration and images to communicate knowledge and ideas. Pixie is the perfect tool for digital age learning with built-in activities for Common Core and tools to create comics and trading cards, digital storytelling videos, and curriculum-related HTML slideshows.

“Tablets are an affordable way for districts to implement 1:1 programs,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning. We develop Pixie for computers and a variety of devices like the Kindle Fire HD to ensure students have powerful creativity tools on the devices districts provide or that students take to school in Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) programs.

“As effective learning devices, tablets need to provide students tools to create, not just consume,” shares Melinda Kolk, Director of Professional Learning, “the Pixie app for Kindle Fire HD at provides tools elementary students already know.”
