San Diego, CA, April 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Tech4Learning’s Pixie is now available in the Apple App store for the iPad. Millions of students world-wide are using Pixie on their computers, and now they can use Pixie on the iPad to create and share their ideas, imagination and understanding through a combination of text, original artwork, voice narration and images.
Pixie is standard creativity software on elementary computers in districts across the United States. With built-in activities correlated to Common Core Standards, and tools to create printed booklets, comics, trading cards, digital storytelling videos, and curriculum-related HTML slideshows, Pixie is the perfect tool for the 21st century classroom.
“With so many districts moving 1:1 with iPads, as well as their growing use at home, we developed the Pixie app for iPad so students and teachers who are using this powerful learning tool on their desktop computers, can continue developing powerful communication skills with their new devices,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.
“Because the Pixie app includes the same tools, features, and interface as the desktop version, it is easy for students and teachers to simply pick up a new device and continue the work they have been doing,” shares Melinda Kolk, Director of Professional Learning for Tech4Learning. “Both the Pixie app for iPad and an updated version of Pixie for PCs can read files created in the other program, making it easy to work in environments with mixed devices or move from school to home and back again.”
