Welcome - Updated
Welcome to L. Houle's Ed Tools. You will find the focus of my website is on No Registration Web 2.0 tools, 20th Century research resources and now the addition of my Shortcuts to Awesome Resource Binders reviews. Besides LHouleEdTools I maintain a presence on LiveBinders.com and now my own Linda Houle YouTube Channel.
My channel focuses on LiveBinders, online digital binders that replace your 3 ring paper binder, that I am excited about and feel deserve to be shared for the quality of content, development of subject matter, organization of resources, and more. Knowing teacher’s are short of time and being a retired Library Media Specialist I love locating, curating and sharing content. Follow my Shortcuts to Awesome LiveBinders (formerly Shortcuts to Awesome Resources Binders) when I upload a short review of a LiveBinder every Wednesday that I find exciting. and valuable that will not likely be covered in the LiveBinder’s monthly Organizing Success Podcast which I help co-host.
I love the convenience of integrating my website and LiveBinders to expand ways to access my content. Besides my website resources, I embedded my LiveBinders and LiveBinder Shelves right on my site and provide links to offsite content. Explore the drop down menu above for all that is available. If you have a comment or idea to share, see my contact form at the bottom.
Why No Registration Web 2.0 Tools?
We ask students to produce, publish, collaborate and evaluate with technology as an integral part of the learning process. When working with K-8 students, we’re concerned for their privacy and anonymity. Most Web 2.0 sites require registration or class accounts. Account set up takes time as does keeping track of student usernames/passwords. No registration tools require no usernames/passwords or email addresses and an be used anytime/anywhere in a web browser usually on any device. Tools are tested prior to listing based on a list of 6 criteria and many test results are available on example pages. There’s no need for apps, extensions or software. Any one no registration tool may be the right tool at the right time for a student, project or class. Come explore and find what might be the right creativity, collaboration, conversion, multimedia, photo image, presentation or productivity tool for students to take ownership of their work, excited and ready to share what they have accomplished.
