Pixie2 seems to have it all. It makes possible a world of learning for elementary students. It is engaging, and students will return to this award winning software program from Tech4Learning again and again. (That’s a characteristic of good software.) Children love to explore, and this software helps them explore the world around them. We have used KidPix in our elementary Computer Lab since 1991, but recently switched to this educational paint program. Text options, clip art and voice recording add a lot to the standards-based activities included with the software package. Pixie2 is helping students sharpen their 21st century skills via podcasts, digital storytelling and the use of Flash animations. ¬†We are looking forward to what we will be able to create in the days and weeks ahead!

    If it helps you learn, then why does it say “Art starts here?”

    “Art Starts Here” is a statement, I think, said for new artists that are just getting started.
