Wixie is a publishing and creativity platform that lets students share what they know through their art, their voice, and their writing. Creating with technology appeals to students with a variety of learning styles, and encourages thinking, creativity, and communication skills. Wixie is an online tool so students can create projects and communicate ideas whenever and wherever they are ready to learn. Wixie works in browsers on Windows, Macintosh and Chromebooks, and using an app on tablets like iPads, Android tablets, and Kindle Fire HDs.
