Creativity in the Cloud - Multimedia Authoring Across Devices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As we help students move from information consumption to content production, how do you find solutions that are easy to learn, easy to manage, and publish student work for authentic learning and powerful assessments?
The objective of this presentation is to introduce educators to open-device options of Wixie, a comprehensive cloud-based solution for writing, creating, assessing, and sharing.
Wixie allows students to combine many of the best features of popular Web 2.0 tools to extend learning beyond the four walls of the classroom. Wixie’s powerful authoring component, combined with a learning management system that is accessible to a wide range of integration abilities, and student saving and sharing make creating, sharing, and assessing online an integral part of the learning process, all on a wide range of devices!
Participants in this session will:
• Gain a clear sense of the benefits of creating and constructing knowledge on a variety of devices, but in the same tool.
• Explore examples of how Wixie has been used in the classroom to engage students in content, to provide additional opportunities for practice as well as extension, and to foster creativity, innovation, and higher-order thinking skills.
• Learn how the tools and administrative functions in Wixie provide an easy way for educators to assess student learning in an open device network.
• Leave with a better understanding of how to implement, assess, and support student-centered authoring.
