    Wixie is a publishing and creativity platform that allows students to “share their ideas, imagination, and understanding through their writing, art, voice, and video” (Wixie.com, 2022, para. 1). With Wixie, students can add text and voice recordings with their own artwork. Their work is stored online and connected to teacher accounts. It’s accessible to all grade levels, particularly the younger ones.
