Bring Creative Technology to Sixth-Grade Classrooms!

Use these examples of projects created by students and tweets from classroom teachers to inspire technology integration in your sixth-grade classroom.

Whether you have Chromebooks, iPads, PCs, or Macs in your classroom, you can use technology to engage and inspire your students in the curriculum.

These multimedia projects were created by students using Wixie.

"Wixie makes it easy for students and teachers to personalize, remix, and create. Wixie centralizes many functions into one package, providing ready-made but flexible templates, a content creation platform, communication and feedback tools, real-time collaboration, and standards-centered assessment tools."
