Gathering information to share?

How do you pull everything together?

LiveBinders is your online 3-ring binder

Best of all, it’s free!

“LiveBinders is dedicated to helping you empower others with the information you worked hard to collect. If you’re like us, you’ve used ‘creative’ tactics to keep track of all these links either through email, word documents or endless lists in your browser bookmarks folder. It is hard to put a bunch of links together in any meaningful format. And sharing a group of URLs is cumbersome for everyone – the sender and the receiver. Have you ever looked through your bookmarks list and forgotten what they are all for?

We created LiveBinders so that you could do with digital informationwhat you do with the papers on your desk – organize them into nice containers – like 3-ring binders on your shelf. At LiveBinders we welcome you to use not just one binder, but as many binders as you need to help organize the stuff you collect and share over the internet.

We have been delighted that teachers are using livebinders as a way to communicate with parents, students, and each other. We could not have done it without the feedback from our launch, and hope LiveBinders will continue to make your digital life easier. We’re still fixing bugs and adding features so please keep that feedback coming! Let us know at Thanks for your help!”

WOW! It is an understatement to say that this site is JAM PACKED with many many resources and tools for teachers in every grade level and discipline. There is so much here it could seem overwhelming to the newcomer. Here’s what you can find on this site, in a nutshell:

  • Links for K-12 Teachers – categorized by subject, grade level, instruction, and overall resources.
  • Grade Level Help for K-8 – skill builder sets to help students practice specific concept areas. An unbelievable amount of resources!
  • Assessment Assistance – resources for help for students on standardized and general subject area assessments.
  • On-line Practice Modules – self-paced learning tutorials on many subjects including Power Point, Macintosh, Inspiration, Word, Excel and more.
  • Daily Dose of the Web – start your visit here daily with updates on question of the day, subject areas, quotations, brain teachers, and interesting trivia.
  • Searching – use one of the many search engines listed. Some are very kid-friendly and return visual results instead of text.

I challenge anyone to not find at least FIVE resources they can use! Go ahead – I dare you!! 🙂
