How I Use It
I have a shelf for US Hist, a shelf for World Hist, and a shelf for WHAP. . US Hist, for example, has 5 units. So I create a Unit 1 binder. The Unit 1 Binder has one page for all of Standard 1 notes, another page for Standard 2, and so on. I can create an access key, so students who abuse access to the notes cannot access if I don't want them to (like college students who download the lecture notes but never go to class- my high schoolers are not equipped to succeed like that). I can import using links from my Google Docs, so I don't have to take the time to upload a bunch of files that are already floating around online. This allows my Flipped workers to work ahead, and my orbital workers to refer to notes they need to complete projects.
My Take
Live binders is a great tool for making documents available in an organized manner. You can create shelves, binders, and pages within each binder. It is very helpful since I have three preps (USHistory, World History, AP World History) and keeping all my files organized for students use online can be a challenge.
