LiveBinders...Fiona Says Yes!



Okay...the Lit Maven was cruising the LiveBinder shelves really early this morning, coffee in hand....hey it's hard looking at binders with a coffee in your hand...


Anyway..I found:

Evernote for Educators

I quite like Evernote and I appreciate that there is a binder laying it all out so nicely. Huge potential for the classroom teacher especially in regards to anecdotal records on the fly....

But..Lit Maven...Fiona?

OH yes...Fiona...

Fiona loves Evernotes!!! The Bird, however...not so much..ENJOY!



Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!

LiveBinders...Kelsey Grammer says yes!



Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives...Oh My!

So there I was, late at night, cruising the LiveBinder shelves. I usually check out the featured ones as I am "softy" for recommendations.

Suddenly I found....

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

The Grammar Task Cards Galore LiveBinder

What does that have to do with Kelsey Grammer....NOTHING... a shameless use of his last name. But check out this hilarious clip from his show Cheers.



and because you need to rock out a bit more...as the song is now in your head...

LiveBinders....The Professor Says Yes!


Not this professor...


This one

Dr. de Groot was the prof who introduced me to the Web 2.0 madness! I will be forever grateful. While cruising the "Featured" LiveBinder shelves I found hers!

"Cool!" I thought, "I know her!"

Anyway please check out Joanne de Groot's LiveBinder.

Developing a Culture of Reading Using Technology

Please check out this intriguing facts about the Professor...


And please listen to the theme song...you know you want to!

LiveBinders....Bradley Cooper says Yes!

Okay..I must admit, I wasn't too pleased with People Magazine's choice...but that aside....

Where are you going with this Lit Maven?

Well...

LiveBinders are LIMITLESS!!!!


No need for a special pill when you have LiveBinders.

You too can be Bradley Cooper...

With LiveBinders you appear to be the smartest on the block.

It's also a lot safer...who wants to be constantly chased through the streets...or worse...end up with a Tiger in your bathroom?



Not Me???

Until Next Time,

LiveBinders the new Google!.....Bill Murray Says Yes!

Who can forget this opening scene from Ghostbusters?



I haven't! In fact this was my experience at the University of Alberta Libraries... I was kind of afraid to approach patrons in fear of a ghostly surprise...

Lit Maven...what is the point?!

Oh yes...

Well LiveBinders have become my new library.

A library that is never closed. Stocked with the latest and greatest. Information up to date and ready to 2 go...

Today I was looking for info. Instead of Google.. I chose LiveBinder.

Why?

Because I knew that someone out there had already done the ground work for me. Someone who is information-centric, such as myself.

And that is just well...Bill Murray-rific! (That was totally a lame way of linking to the next clip..)

Bill Murray reads poetry to construction workers....SERIOUSLY!!!!


Until Next Time,

The Reason I Blog...The Reason I Read



Yes...the Lit Maven reads books.

Here is the latest...



The Story Within by Laura Oliver

Here is a quote I connected with that really sums up the reason I blog:

"Don't worry about whether the choices you are making are good or bad; be concerned only that they are honest." (p.225)

8 Tracks-The New Digital Chocolate




So ...here is the Lit Maven...working hard...she goes to play her "Happy Playlist."

What is a "Happy Playlist"?

I created a word document with links to my favorite Happy Songs from YouTube..then

BAM!

Apparently I do this too much because it required a "write the letters you see"
prompt...

That was annoying so I googled "Happy Music" and found this Piece of Digital Chocolate.

8-Tracks
This is the mix that I am listening to today.



Handcrafted mixes...these just never get old. Try it out!

Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!
