Organize and Collaborate with Stixy

Stixy.com is a organization and collaboration web tool. Stixy, as the name implies, allows you to write notes and stick them to a clipboard. This sounds no different than the built in Sticky application on your Mac. Stixy takes it a step further by allowing you to share you notes with others and have them respond to your notes. The Stixy clipboard has three other great features, the ability to stick and share documents, stick and share photographs, and create and share a "to do" list on the clipboard and on a calendar. Stixy does not require any downloads and operates on any operating system. Below you will see a screen shot of the clipboard I'm using right now.










Applications for Education

Stixy is useful for creating a calendar of events or units of study to share with students and parents. Stixy shared "to do" list function could be useful to helping students stay organized while working on long projects. Finally, the ability to customize and personalize the look of the Stixy clipboard may encourage students to use their Stixy clipboard regularly.
