Hi Everyone,

Sorry this is a little late but I hope you all had a wonderful Hannukah.

Have you ever heard of LiveBinders? This is a GREAT tool to organize your web resources. Basically what you are doing is creating a binder online – “no more paper, no more books”!!!!

Here are a couple of examples of live binders that others have shared – remember web 2.0 is all about sharing…Create, Share, Use….
