Tech4Learning is making it easier for schools and districts to get up and running with Wixie by integrating its service with Gaggle. With this integration, schools and districts will be able to add users to Wixie through their existing Gaggle accounts and provide a Single‐Sign-on (SSO) between the companies’ products.
Gaggle is now a 15-time CODiE award finalist, winning the 2012 SIIA CODiE Award for Best Cross-Curricular Solution. Specifically created for K-12, Gaggle features built-in processes and classroom workflows designed to promote educator and student productivity. Educators can easily create, assign, collect and correct assignments on their schedule, while promoting student engagement and embracing the benefits of social networking in a safe and controlled environment.
Due to an increase in media coverage regarding the Gaggle – Local Message Board App, available on Apple iTunes and the Google Play Store, media members are encouraged to recognize the clear distinction between Gaggle.Net, Inc. and the app offered by Factyle, Inc.
The Gaggle Human Monitoring Service (HMS) discovered millions of inappropriate words and images in student email, text messages, discussion boards, email attachments and computer files, leading to thousands of warnings sent to school district administrators and law enforcement during the first semester of the 2013-14 school year.
