Stixy

My very good friend Kathy Korty told me of a new site today. Stixy is a new way for students, educators, parents and others to collaborate online. We start out with a blank virtual bulletin board. Using the Stixy widgets we can easily add content or functionality to our board, positioning them anywhere. We can add notes, photos, documents, or to-do items. We also have several options when it comes to sharing with others. After being published they can be private or public with or without rights to add or remove files.

Sample:
This is a new program for me so I set up a sample Stixy. The first thing that came to my mind a student portfolio.


A Paperless Classroom: Set up a Stixy to

  • Give and receive assignments
  • Assign Web-Based tasks
  • Display a collection of writing prompts
  • Display a Classroom Calendar complete with a To-Do section
  • Gather thoughts from the class: Which book would you like to read next?
  • Create a board full of questions on a new curriculum topic
What other ideas can you think of?
