The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Hi All,
Which program do you use - Kid Pix or Pixie? Why? We're a Mac school. I've been happy with Kid Pix for the past 15 years, but I'm wondering if there's a benefit to switching to Pixie. Thanx all!

Kid Pix is not being updated anymore - as you move to up to date machines and O/S, you may see issues. Plus, Pixie is made for schools, lots of project starters, libraries of great art, plus lots of ways to export, print, and share. Download the demo and give it a try... http://www.tech4learning.com/pixie

Full disclosure, I've partnered with Tech4Learning (makers of Pixie), so maybe I'm biased, but they are a good company and really care about teachers.
Sylvia,
Thanx for your response. That's exactly what I wanted to hear. I've worked with Tech 4 Learning before and found their tech support to be amazing! They respond personally within 24 hours, and don't give up until they solve the problem. I've done a lot with Media Blender. I love it. Is that being replaced? I don't see it advertised anymore.
Thanx again!
Faith
I believe so - but they have a new program called Share that looks pretty cool!
Actually, MacKiev is now making a Universal version of KidPix Deluxe 3, and it integrates nicely with iLife, and runs great on the Mac. We've used it for a couple of years now, and I'm quite pleased with it. You can read about it here: http://www.mackiev.com/kid_pix.html.

Looking for educators who teach in inclusive classrooms.

My name is Robin Wilkins and I am a student researcher. I am conducting a study in which I would like to share the perceptions of teachers who teach in inclusive settings (non-disabled and disabled students) regarding engaging students and professional development needs to engage students.Robin_Wilkins_RecruitmentFlyer032822.docxSee More
