Welcome to the debut of my new weekly feature....Webby Wednesday. Every Wednesday, I'll feature something cool from the web: a website for students or teachers, a tool to use for your classroom or blog.
Monday, I introduced you all to Stixy.
Stixy is basically an interactive bulletin board. You can set boards up to be private or public (as I did for Guided Math - Chapter 1).
Here's a screenshot of the Chapter 1 board:
When the board opens, all you do is is click on the note & drag it up to the board. An option menu will slide up on the right, where you can change the color of your note, the font, & color of your text.
Type in your response, click Save up at the top (though it automatically saves, too), and you're good!
To set up your own stixyboards, all you need to do is register for an account (it's FREE!)
I can think of all kinds of applications for this in the classroom.
Can you think of ways you can use this in the classroom?
I've set up a board where we can all add ideas for ways stixy can work for us in the classroom.
