One of my favorite composite resource sites uses LiveBinders to create the Binder Evidence of Learning 2.0 with a wealth of tools and ideas for students to share what they know and can do. Created by Mike Fischer: http://livebinders.com/play/play/18793. Another example that focuses on web tools by type is: http://www.livebinders.com/play/play_or_edit?id=365641

Live Binders is a great tool to put all your resources in one place for easy web access. livebinders.gifhttp://livebinders.com

Tech Coaches!

Did you know that you can get free educational videos at www.izzit.org? These videos are actual discs that, when used on a computer, come with teacher tools such as activities and suggested lesson plans. One video/teacher/year free.

Some coaches have set up a Google Doc (Spreadsheet)for their school with the teacher name, video ordered, and department. I asked teachers to each order one, fill out the google Doc to make sure that they were not duplicating another's order, and then we will have a (hopefully) complete set in our LMC...

Wikispaces Projects: A Better Way to Work in Classroom Groups Whenever you have a particular assignment or activity, you can create a project for it, then define teams of members, each with its own unique pages, files, and permissions. Team content (that is, pages and files) are grouped together, separate from the main area of the wiki. That way, students in teams can do their group work completely independently from other teams.
