Everyday Barbara and I enjoy checking out the ‘recent’ Featured shelf on our website and continue to find so many interesting and creative ways in which educators are organizing their resources. We thought it was time to highlight another 10 great binders for you to enjoy.
Virtual Summer Camp
User ‘mikefisher821’ – created the Virtual Summer Camp binder for teachers who are looking to improve their Web 2.0 skills, and look for inspiring online lectures and resources for teaching. He also created a comprehensive web 2.0 resource binder called ‘Evidence of Learning 2.0’. It is a fabulous collection of web 2.o applications broken down by category.
Mrs. Knight’s English Binder
Our user ‘bknight’ created a 9th grade English class binder for both students and parents. She uses googledocs to create a syllabus and surveys. When she updates her googledocs syllabus, it will automatically update in her livebinder. The combination of googledocs with livebinders provides flexibility for the teacher who wants a collection of documents organized by context, and yet accessible anytime for editing without having to worry about re-uploading documents.
Sailing Camp LiveBinder
User ‘rlaffey’ put a complete course of information for his summer camp sailing program. Students are able to access information online at anytime during the course instruction. ‘Rlaffey’ organized videos and handouts throughout the binder.
MCA Orientation Binder
Our user ‘mcalibrary’ created an excellent resource binder for staff members who are relocating to Taiwan. They put together a comprehensive resource on local transportation, english language support networks, television stations, tourist sites, language resources and a history of Taiwan.
Learning History by creating a Travel Binder
Speaking of travel guide, teacher ‘MrsB’ created a fantastic binder course for 1st – 5th graders where they were to team up with partners and plan a trip to a particular country. The idea is to get them to create a scenario where they have to travel to this country and then document what they visited. In her binder below, she provided guidelines, handouts and resources that help the students with their projects. I’ve included her binder below plus one of the student example binders.
Conference Presentation Binder
‘Dmantz7’ used livebinders as a way to present conference material in an organized format in the binder. He addresses unique 21st century issues with examples of tools that teachers can use for their classroom. He also provides guidelines on how to use some of the web 2.0 tools he highlights. Its a great resource for teachers and also another example of how to use livebinders as a presentation tool.
‘Jmayo’ put together a great collection of science virtual worlds and interactive online programs in the subject of live sciences. There are some very fun and immersive environments that students will enjoy exploring and coming away learning something about the world they live in.
User ‘arosheim’ created a lovely binder for kindergarten to 5th grade students to learn more about poetry. Each tab is organized by grades and includes sub-tabs with links to poetry examples and exercises that are grade appropriate.
LiveBinder Shelf of 2sparkley
User ‘2sparkley’ has created an enormous resource of great information for teachers in all subject areas. Instead of focusing on one binder, we are sharing her entire library of public binders in this link to her livebinder public shelf. Resources include useful links to math and english subjects, safety on the web, word clouds and virtual worlds.
Here are some more examples.
