WOW #8: Social Bookmarking- SO Important

Web Tool of the Week #8:

Diigo.com

Everyone has heard of Social Networking (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.), but how about Social Bookmarking?

Instead of using the “Favorites” tool in your web browser to save a website link that you like, want to share and/or will need later, consider using a social bookmarking web tool instead.  My favorite is Diigo.com.

Below is a link to an earlier blog post I wrote about Diigo & the value of social bookmarking in education.  Please read the post is you want to learn more about this topic.  You’ll find a video that explains it in ‘plain English’, as well as some suggestions on how to use it with students.

Next week I’ll share info about how to create a Diigo Educator account!

Happy Bookmarking :)
