A tag is a way to label your bookmarks for easy retrieval at another time.
For instance, you might use the tag “Literacy” to tag all the websites you find on that subject. That way you can easily find them later without having to scroll through a long list.
Tagging in delicious: http://delicious.com
Tagging in diigo: http://www.diigo.com/buzz/hot
Keep your tags consistent. If you have too many, it defeats the purpose!
i.e. always use Literacy, Math & Science instead of Science site, Literacy tools, Math problems and sometimes Reading and sometimes Science stuff
Use tags that you will remember and that make sense to you!
If you are creating a public bookmark, use tags that other people would use to find your bookmark
Provide students with a list of online resources that is easily updated and accessible at home as well as at school.
In upper grades, allow students who are working collaboratively to use social bookmarking to share resources, comment and discuss
Keep track of online resources you find at home, at school, at conferences, overseas, ANYWHERE!
Use social bookmarking to allow grade or department partners to share resources
Use social bookmarking as a professional development tool (mostly in diigo) through which colleagues can share resources, comment and discuss them asynchronously.
