Yahoo! Teachers

Yahoo! Teachers is a lesson planning and collaboration tool for educators to create lesson plans and share them with others. The creation of lesson plans is facilitated by a widget called Gobbler, which enables users to copy and paste content (text, images, or entire web pages) from any web site into a folder in their portfolio. Folders contain pre-assigned metadata concerning the content, including subject, grade level, and state learning standards. Content placed in a folder is automatically marked with this metadata. This is crucial in the No Child Left Behind environment so that teachers can meet federal testing requirements. Once collected, content in the folders can be pasted into a rich text editor to enable teachers to create handouts and worksheets.
