This week I came across Stixy, and was impressed. I'm always on the lookout for new tools to create stories online, but I also keep an eye out for teaching aids. For those teachers that are just starting to dip a toe in the digital waters in their classrooms ... this little application may be useful.

It's essentially a bulletin board, one in which you can simply display information for your audience (colleagues or students or both). You can share your board with the world, or limit it to a particular group of users. You can also collaborate, allowing other users the ability to add or subtract from what you post on your Stixy board. This tool could also of course, be used to create photo stories, adding text and links and much more.

There are a number of applications like this one out there, but I particularly liked Stixy for its simplicity and ease of use. Fast to create, edit and share.
