Student Engagement Playground

Here is another playground that I created in LiveBinders. This playground is a group of resources that explore the essential questions around student engagement:

You can also explore the same resources at pinterest. My colleague Michelle (@mrg_3) taught me how to pin the resources onto a board. What a great tool for curating resources into a visual format!

Thanks to Michelle. I hope you enjoy our teamwork:)


Web Tools for Teachers Playground

I recently completed a LiveBinder based on a need I've perceived in my district. Teachers are busy, and they don't want to devote a lot of time exploring web tools that turn out to be expensive, unnecessarily complicated, or insufficient to the task they are designed to address.

To help teachers explore the wide range of web tools in a pre-vetted playground, I put together this LiveBinder that divides the tools into some of my favorites by task. If you are looking for simple, free tools that will deliver what they promise, look here.

Happy exploring!
