A bookmarking tool to curate content and share it globally.
I recommend this website for teaching and learning . It may be used outside the classroom with multiple uses. It has a bookmarklet which makes collecting bookmarks easy. As it can be edited , you can revise and update content continuously. Here is a binder about this wonderful tool that suits 21st Century Lifelong Learners' needs: https://smberdaxagar2010.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/livebinders-21st-century-multipurpose-digital-binders-for-lifelong-learners-via-edmodo-livebinders-livebinders/Continue reading

Online curation tool to assemble a variety of text, media and web object in a collection
3. Live Binders is one of three excellent websites (Symbaloo, Edcanvas being the others) to help you collect, curate and present a variety of digital resources for students. Teachers have used Live Binders to build up a collection of images, resources and links on a specific topic. Students (perhaps Gr.5 and up) might also create an account and have their own Live Binder(s) for individual or collaborative research and presentation. Finally, the final product is easily shared with students (and parents) through our LMS (Learning Management System) AKA Blackboard, or email, Twitter etc.Continue reading

An easy to use way to catalog and share resources
Livebinders is a very minimal website that offers robust functionality. It is not the flashiest of platforms but the ease of use makes up for any design shortcomings. If you are looking for an easy way to curate resources (websites, files, etc) in a single place then LiveBinders is perfect.Continue reading

Nice organizational tool for projects and synthesis tasks
As mentioned by others, LiveBinders fits really well into activities that lend themselves to a tabbed structure (like sample PARCC or SBAC synthesis tasks, research projects, unit resource collections, etc.). It's easy to add URLs and the ability to collaborate, share, and embed make it fairly flexible for use in the classroom or for professional development. Adding your own content isn't as intuitive as it could be, nor is editing existing tabs. It does allow students to create an account under a teacher email address, which is nice for students who may not have school email as an option; however, having students create their own logins and passwords can be a headache for the teacher. Providing Single Sign-On or login via Google or social media accounts would greatly simplify the process.Continue reading

Great for Organizing but Somewhat Limited
Live Binders only allows one website or file on a tab/page which means you can end up with many pages and sub-pages. Tabs can be color coded but no clip art, border or images give any visual interest. PDF files show as embedded text on the page.Continue reading

Livebinder gives students a "one-stop shopping" location from which to launch research.
Livebinder is a great way to organize information for students to access so that they don't get bogged down in the "Google Search" nightmare which yields too many sources, some of which are not credible or relevant. It takes time, however, to set this up, so the project students would be on would need to merit the teacher set-up time investment.Continue reading

Student-Friendly Curation Tool
I use LiveBinders to gather resources for research projects. Teachers like it because it gives students websites that I've evaluated. Of course, students should (and do) find and evaluate their own resources, but the LiveBinder is especially helpful for our SAI or low literacy classes.Continue reading

Terrific way to organize materials!
LiveBinders is an attractive, easy way to collect websites, documents, videos and more. I could envision students creating LiveBinders collaboratively, and creating a body of knowledge about a topic. For instance, a teacher recently had students researching the 1920's, and they could have created a LiveBinder with tabs for The Arts, Crime and Criminals, Political Figures, and more. All students could then read each others' contributions, and the final project could be a complete study of the era.Continue reading
