LiveBinders ~ A Virtual 3 - Ring Binder: Learn how to store, organize, collaborate, and present digital content!
Attention Students and Teachers!
LiveBinders is a Digital Curation Tool, which will help both students and teachers alike, store, organize, collaborate and present digital content! According to the LiveBinders website, "Create your own classroom textbooks, evidence documentation, ePortfolios, and more. Make it easy for your students to find and use resources in a visual context they understand. LiveBinders opens up new opportunities for collaborating, organizing, and sharing resources that were never possible before."
Please view this example of a Live Binder.
The next time you have a research project, create a binder to collect and organize all the documents, videos, images, and webpages you find. Once you find all the information you need to support your topic, you can even take notes next to each piece of supporting evidence.
Please view this Tech Brief to learn how to get started with LiveBinders!

You are cordially invited to attend a weekend of writing workshops, craft sessions, and open mic at the Champlain College Young Writers' Conference, May 26-28. Now in our seventeenth year, our doors are open to high school students who wish to share their passion for story, drama, and song with their writerly brothers and sisters—and with celebrated New England authors. We offer three days of readings, improv, Moth storytelling, poetry slams, literary jazz/blues fusion, and extended friendship on the hillside campus of Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont.
OUR 2017 KEYNOTE SPEAKER, AWARD-WINNING POET AND ESSAYIST NAOMI SHIHAB NYE, is the author of more than 30 volumes, including 19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poems of the Middle East; A Maze Me; Red Suitcase; Words under the Words; Fuel; You & Yours; Mint Snowball; Never in a Hurry: Essays on People and Places; I’ll Ask You Three Times, Are you Okay?; Habibi; and Going, Going. In addition to receiving numerous fellowships and awards, Naomi’s work has been presented on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion and The Writer’s Almanac. She was featured in two PBS poetry specials, and has appeared on NOW with Bill Moyers. Born to a Palestinian father and an American mother, Naomi refers to herself as a "wandering poet."
