connecting educators & enhancing learning
Livebinders is a free tool that allows you to organize information. Just like a 3 ring binder, livebinders organizes information in tabs. Livebinders allows you to access your saved information from anywhere. It is also possible to link a binder in a blog or website. I found this site to be a great resource for research projects and creating a safe place for students to surf for information.
Cost: Livebinders is totally free right now. In the future, users can pay to have more storage and download sizes.
Ease of Creation: It is very easy to create a binder. There are tutorials on the website and step by step instructions while you create.
Ease of Use with Students: Students will be able to use this site to organize their own online information and computer documents. Students could create their own binders. OR A teacher could create a binder for students to easily access websites or information from anywhere.
Overall Appearance: This tool looks very professional. You can use this tool to present information in meetings or presentations. There are no annoying ads and the information can stay private and be shared with the public or a select group.Special Features:
Thanks for sharing this resource. I will take some time to explore this both for myself and future classroom implementation. Sounds like another innovative way to manage internet research.
Thanks so much,
I will definitely explore this site after finishing my technology in education class. My head is spinning with information overload. This may sound funny but I print every lesson I went through in this class and keep it in a binder with notes. I know I should keep it on line but I like seeing it organized in a binder. Now I know there is an online binder!
I use LiveBinders to flip my class. I also train other teachers on the use of it. I use it with my Mac and have not found any issues. I also work with the developers when issues arise. My students love it because I organize it by date and if they are absent they just go to the date they missed and get the work. Lisa I am a secondary teacher and not sure how well it would work for lower el. But I could see some applications for maybe 4-6 grade as far as organizing units for students. I also use it for an IS class I have. They are adding new features all of the time to make it more user friendly (not that it is unfriendly). I also use it for a college class I teach to give my students all the resources they need. For that class I organize it my class rather than date. Let me know if you have questions. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm really interested in learning more about this tool. Has anyone used it successfully? Can you give me feedback on useability, accessibility, etc.? This looks like a great organization tool and because it is web-based: no worrying about file transfer. Thanks!
