  • More than social bookmarking, Diigo has notetaking tools.

  • Here is another view of my notes on sites, in my library.Advanced uses that I have only heard about - You could tag a bunch of sites as a particular topic – let’s say – the solar system. Then pull up a list of those sites only, make it a slide show of sites, and embed that slideshow onto your class blog.
  • When logged into Diigo, you can see other people’s PUBLIC notes and highlights (but you can mark your notes private, don’t worry!), which is interesting – you can start a dialog. You can also have conversations in forums, and follow particular people or groups. This can be a networking tool for people of similar interests.Maybe you are an administrator or department head and you want to disseminate a site to a group with your comments – you can through Diigo Groups function. You can make private/invitation-only groups.
  • Privacy – Can set up accounts with no last names and no emails. Kids can change their passwords later.Can see what the kids are bookmarking and noting, and alert them if nec.Automatically a group, where you can share sites, but can also make smaller discussion groups.Can install diigolet without permission.Keeps strangers from following them.Cons: takes a day to set up – they like to confirm you are using a school email.
  • This is my list of students I imported in my teacher console
  • Groups I set up according to kids who had similar topics
  • Student’s account – visible by teacher.
  • ConsMakes books even less attractivePdfs – only snapshotsPermalinks in databases a problem.Ads in education one are only of education related things. But ads are minimal anyway.Ideas, tips –Can you think of a way to use it at your school?
