Technology Tip: Live Binders

Live Binders is an easy to use online bookmarking site.  You can organize websites by tabs and subtabs.  When you select a tab or subtab, the website or document you have loaded into the binder opens. 

Live Binders Features:

  • navigate websites from within the binder
  • share binders or keep them private
  • allow collaboration on binders
  • add notes to binders
  • upload images, documents, or videos into binder
Ideas for Using Live Binders with Math Students:
  • Create binders with interactive math sites for students to access.                                                                                                                                                          Ex.  A binder could contain sites like  visual fractions, IXL, cool math, funbrain, etc.
  • Create binders based on a particular topic and share with students.                                                                                                                                                         Ex.  Create a binder with websites, documents, images, and videos about topics like Pythagorean Theorem, Adding Fractions, Proportions, Angles, etc.)
  • Have students create online portfolios with their work.                                                                                                                                                                         When students create products online, they can save them into a Live Binder as an online portfolio.  They can also upload written documents into the binder.  This would be a great way for students to be able to share their work with their parents.
  • Create shared portfolios of student's work on a particular topic.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Ex.  You could have students create a Glog about angles.  Then you could have the entire class share their Glogs in a Live Binder.  This is a great way to share work and to have it available for students to view any time.
These are just a few of the ways Live Binders can be used with math students.  Creating online Portfolios is also a great way to keep parents involved.  If your school has Student Led Conferences, this would be a new way for students to share their work with parents.
