Frequently Asked Questions
When a user adds a link, it is added to a database that all Cube members can then access. Names of contributors are never made public. You have the option of adding a copy of any resource to your favourites area. Once in your favourites area, you can edit the resource to suit your needs; this does not affect the original contribution.
We have included help buttons and hovering hints to guide those who need assistance.
A web resource added becomes an anonymously shared resource.
No. The accounts are for educators only. Cube for Teachers was developed to create an environment of collaboration and communication among educators. Our policy strictly states that users must be educators and be over 18 years of age.
You may contribute as many and as often as you like.
Not yet. If you discover an error, simply report the link. The "Report a Link" icon (stop sign) is located next to the title of each search return.
The dashboard is your main hub of organization. This is the page from which you will venture into The Cube every time you log in.
On Deck is a platform for teachers to temporarily isolate up to 30 links from the favourites area for quick and easy access during a lesson. Removing these links from On Deck does not affect the resources within the favourites area.
A quick email to our support team is all you need to make the switch. All of the resources within your favourites area will remain attached to your account.
An ISBN is either a 10 or 13 digit number that uniquely identifies a book of some kind. A teacher adding a resource may find a connection between their web resource and the book they are using in their classroom.
You will notice under curriculum resources we have a button to indicate multiple resource links. These are valuable sites that contain numerous links to other pages and links. A teacher may come across a great site full of multiple resources and want to enter it into The Cube to make it available to other educators through the multiple resource link area. Some have described it as the middle ground between the massive returns on typical search engines and single resource links. Many choose to select the specific resources found on these sites and share them as single resource links.
No doubt, blogging has become a popular way for teachers to share ideas as well as build upon their own professional development through reflection, research, and discussions.
If you are an edublogger, how do you share your work? Perhaps you post it on micro-blogging sites a few times in the hope that it gains traction or gets posted on other websites.
