How I Use It
I teach teachers to use technology effectively. For every workshop, I create a LiveBinder of materials that support and instruct, and I share the LiveBinder at the workshop. Teachers can then visit the LiveBinder to reinforce what was taught in the workshop, find additional resources, or add resources to share with others. It is a great Professional Development tool, and helps us extend our learning beyond the workshop.
My Take
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.
