We have a teacher who is using LiveBinders in her class with her lesson plans and websites projected up on the screen. She asked that we create a way to show a binder without all the information around the binder that might distract her 5th grade students. So we added a ‘full screen’ mode to LiveBinders. From the shelf, click on Options > Show Full Screen and the binder will open up without toolbars or binder information.
This feature is also useful for PR people using LiveBinders who want to present the media coverage to clients.
Go here to try it out.

We have now added a comments feature to LiveBinders so that you can comment on binders in the same way that you would comment on a blog. You just press the comment button at the bottom of the binder. You must be logged in to leave comments.

Ms. Kellogg also had another a great suggestion for using LiveBinders in the computer lab.
Step 1. Create a LiveBinder with the pre-approved sites for the school, something like this one:
Step 2. Drag this binder to the desktop of every computer in the computer lab.
The students then click on the binder to get to the websites. Anytime you add to or change the binder, the changes are automatically on everyone’s desktop!
You could even make separate binders for upper grades and lower grades if desired.
Thank you Ms. Kellogg for sharing your insights with us.

Ms. Kellogg has created a binder full of interesting sites for her 2nd grade students to explore over the summer. She put the binder up on her wonderful website. (When you look at her website, be sure to check out the great “how to” videos that her students created at the bottom of her site.)
Here is her binder:
