  • One of the greatest things about the internet is the ability to find information both fast and easy. The trick is being able to hold onto and access the information and resources at anytime from anywhere. I believe social bookmarking provides us with the means to do this and that is why I am referring to it as the internet breadcrumb trail. As educators we want to be more successful than Hansel and Gretel’s attempt to return home using a trail of breadcrumbs. This presentation is a brief overview of the benefits of social bookmarking.
  • Bookmarking is a term used to describe the ability to save links to your favorite websites to the computer that you are using at that time. I refer to this as the old way because I feel it is useless and outdated (like the car in the picture) because often times we save so many of these bookmarks to our computers that they become hard to find and use. Not to mention, we can only access these bookmarks from the computer we saved them to. Social Bookmarking is a free internet based tool that allows us to tag and save our favorite websites, or other online resources to a bookmarking website that can be accessed anytime, and anywhere from an internet capable computer or device. This new interactive way of bookmarking provides us with a variety of features and benefits any teacher would love and benefit from.
  • So,Why Social Bookmarking:Well, no more spending hours searching for worthwhile content for your own staff development or interests, or student projects and resources.No more losing your favorite websites because you have so many you can’t find the ones you need when you need them.No more having to use the same computer to access saved websites. You can access your websites from home or school, your desktop or your laptop, at a conference, on vacation or anywhere for that matter.
  • Some of the benefits of social bookmarking or things you can do are:The ability to tag bookmarks, which is add searchable keywords to them.The ability to categorize or group your bookmarks by topic.The ability to search your bookmarks and others by popularity, or human selected keywords or tags. The ability to share your bookmarks with students, colleagues, friends, or anyone that shares the same interests as you. Network with people that have similar interests by joining groups or interacting or collaborating with other social bookmarking website members. Websites can be viewed by the number of people that have viewed them, their rank or popularity and the number of people that have also bookmarked them.The ability to comment on your bookmarks or the bookmarks of others are all benefits of Social Bookmarking.
  • Some more of the benefits of social bookmarking are:Saved bookmarks or websites can be accessed from any computer or device with internet access.Saved websites are easy to organize, find and share.Saved websites can be viewed by popularity, meaning the number of people that have either viewed the websites or have bookmarked the website themselves.
  • A social bookmarking service that allows users to: Tag or add searchable key words to saved bookmarks making them easy to find. Save or store bookmarks to one central location for easy anytime, anywhere access from any internet capable device. Organize bookmarks by alphabet or the date they were added. Manage bookmarks by adding, deleting, modifying, or changing the way they are viewed.Create and share a single set of bookmarks kept in sync between all of your computers.
  • Diggo or Social Bookmarking 2.0 is a social information network that allows users to:Collect information by providing a central location to store or bookmark websites.Annotate information by highlighting text and attaching sticky notes to specific parts of webpages that are stored for later use.Organize information by tagging bookmarks or creating lists. For example, lists can be used to organize, share and display a specific set of bookmarks for students to use for projects. Discover information by looking at the bookmarked websites of others that may share the same interests as you. These websites often contain useful resources and information that were picked by others like you and not a computer generated ranking system like the websites obtained from internet search engine results.Share knowledge and information that you yourself have obtained with other Diggo users.
