Online Account Access (beyond Google)

Heathcote students have access to a few online platforms in addition to Google Apps. While Google Apps and all the feature of Drive are awesome tools and resources, one can’t learn by Google alone.

 

Students have access to 4 main online services; Kodable, Tynker, Typing Club, and Wixie. Kodable and Tynker are coding programs, Typing Club is a keyboarding game, and Wixie is a robust art platform. All of these services are web-based and accessible anywhere. Kodable, Tynker, and Wixie are also available as iPad apps.
