A new online resource I’ve been looking at recently is LiveBinders. Straight off the bat I’d have to say I like it, and can see a lot of potential for the busy web-savvy techie teacher, and the technophobes amongst us.
Look & Feel
It sort of “feels like” a wiki, a Research Guide (LibGuides), and an old fashioned three-ring binder with tabs rolled into one. Once you’ve added a LiveBinders bookmarklet to your browser you’re good to go. If you have a Delicious or Pinterest account collecting and saving webpages will feel very familiar.
Some of the nice features of LiveBinders are:
- you can drag binders to the desktop for a laptop presentation
- they’re easy to update and organize
- you can use them with a SmartBoard
- and apparently, a binder can be embedded into a blog!
