This online community group (intended to foster participation between teachers at the K-12 level) made possible by Verizon Thinkfinity, called Online Tools for Educators is a web-based resource that is FREE for educators. The idea is that the reader (primarily K-12 educators, though university professors can utilize this resource as well, which is especially useful for those who teach pre-service educators) fulfills each of the four specified categories as follows:
Autonomy: Educators can choose what resources they feel are relevant to their own content area backgrounds
Diversity: Depending on the teacher who is posting, the tool that they are discussing/reviewing, etc. different perspectives are present
Openness: Teachers have the ability to review this group's content information without the use of a login, BUT, Thinkfinity encourages educators to create a FREE account so that they have easy access to each of the groups they'd like to follow, including the one I'm reviewing here
Interaction: The reader can discuss their personal perspectives on each tool, or ask questions about the tool, to give others a chance to share their own experiences with it.
I would give this resource 5 out of 5 stars on all accounts. It could be argued that Openness isn't 5-star worthy due to the fact that there is a login credential built into the site, but it isn't prohibitive. I visited the website WITHOUT being logged into my account and was able to access all of the materials that logged in users would be able to view.
