  • 4. Answers to the Essential Questions:
    • What are Social Bookmarking Sites?
    • 5. Social Bookmarking Sites are websites that allow the user to store internet site urls “in the cloud” for easy retrieval from any computer with internet access.
  • Answers to the Essential Questions:
    • Why would one Utilize a Social
    Bookmarking Site?
    • Unlike bookmarking your favorites on your own computer, you have access to your favorite websites from any internet connected computer or device such as a mobile smart phone or ipad like device.
    • 6. The Websites are organized by “tags” or labels, and can be shared with others in the user’s “network”

    www.delicious.com
    www.diigo.com

  • 9. Summary of Experience of Use
    Diigo
    delicious
    The site has a downloadable tool bar which allows ease of bookmarking, highlighting, applying interactive sticky notes to websites
    Site allows organization of websites by content specific, user defined “tags”
    Searches can be done via “tags” of all websites
    Users can set up groups with similar interests, receive alerts , share tagged websites, from others in their group or community
    Site has a very user friendly video tutorial which explains features
    Has both a “free” and paid version.
    Educational version available
    This site also has a downloadable tool bar to allow ease of bookmarking and tagging sites
    This site does NOT have the functionality of highlighting and interactive sticky notes
    Favored websites are organized by user defined “tags”
    Searches can be done via “tags”of all web sites
    Users can set up and join networks of users with similar interests, sharing tags and websites from others in their groups/networks
    Easy to use, but no embedded tutorial
    Software is completely free
    Owned by Yahoo, rumor has it service will be discontinued
  • 10. Final Thoughts:
    • This type of social bookmarking software is very useful in the classroom.
    • 11. A teacher can set up an account, share bookmarks with students via tags,
    Example: http://www.delicious.com/alisontopper/genetics
    By tagging, a teacher
    Can guide students
    To appropriate websites
    For projects
  • 12. Final Thoughts:
    • Diigo, with it’s highlighting, interactive sticky notes, screenshot capability,
    • 13. Is more functional than Delicious.
    • 14. Diigo also allows easy exporting of bookmarks/tags to Delicious
    • 15. I’ve been a long time Delicious user, but am now switching to Diigo.
    • 16. I’ve set up a school Diigo account, as well as a personal one.
    • 17. I will share the school Diigo link with all the teachers at my school.
    • 18. Of course, I’ll share contacts between the 2!
  • One Last Site to Check Out:
    This site is not part of the software evaluation/review, but I want to share
    The link:
    www.appolicious.com
    This is a social bookmarking site specifically tailored to apps for ipod and
    Android devices. It is similar to both Diigo and Delicious.
