Yahoo! for Teachers

I received an e-mail yesterday that the new Yahoo! for Teachers Beta is now up and running.  According to the website, Yahoo! for Teachers is:

 A place for educators to find, create, and share standards-based classroom materials – for FREE 

Yahoo! for Teachers is debuting a new feature: The Gobbler.

 The Gobbler is a unique internet tool that allows you to easily gather and web pages, images, and text clippings from other websites on the Internet.  Once you install the Gobbler, you’ll be able to drag and drop everything right into your Yahoo! for Teachers portfolio without leaving the site you are visiting.  The Gobbler is free and takes less then a minute to install. 

I haven’t had too much time to play around yet, but it looks like each teacher or administrator who sets up a free account will get a portfolio.  You can create projects inside your portfolio, which you can then share with colleagues.  And likewise, you can browse projects create by others.

 

I’m always in favor of collaboration and taking a peek into what others are doing in their classroom.  Enjoy!
