Allows creation of binders that resemble 3-ring notebook/binders with resources organized by tabs inside each binder. Also a GREAT place to look for resources assembled in binders other educators have already created.

Diigo provides "social bookmarking, web annotation, tagging, and group-based collaboration." In addition to bookmarking and accessing bookmarks from anywhere, you can annotate webpages with highlights & sticky notes. One thing I always loved about Diigo was the ability to organize bookmarks into lists and share a link with someone directly to a specific list in your library of links. However in December 2014, Diigo eliminated the list feature and replaced it with outliners and limits the number of outliners you can create for free (there was no limit on lists). Free upgrades are available to educators for "special premium accounts provided specifically to K-12 & higher-ed educators." Once upgraded, you can create accounts for an entire class (no student emails required). Users in a class are automatically in a Diigo group and can collaborate, and "privacy settings of student accounts are pre-set so that only teachers and classmates can communicate with them." The number of allowed outliners also is greater with the upgrade. If you like outliners and find them a useful way to organize links for you and your students or colleagues, go for it. Don't be influenced by my frustration about lists going away.

This cool tool allows you to search for Flickr photos, and then you can download the image "stamped" at the bottom with attribution to the photographer and type of license. It also provides a link to the original photo on Flickr.

Free download - Windows only - old/outdated, but still a great program if you happen to still have it on machines your work with.

Many of links focus on workshops and other services, but check out at least two links at the top: Storykeeper's Gallery (lots of examples) and Evaluating Projects - check out how you can use the interactive tool to create a customized scoring guide for your project by choosing the type/purpose of the story and then selecting criteria you wish to evaluate. The Storymaking Tools link at the top goes to a wiki with some great resources including a list of iPad apps for creating.
