  • Introduction if there are others there. Introduced through the merger and both had a love of Tech. Run in the same circles on line and often catch up on web conferences and twitter have many of the same online friends.
  • It is a great idea to subscribe to the IT>PM blog. It will be updated when there is an upcoming PD and after the session you will find the PowerPoint and any links we’ve mentioned.
  • The common craft videos are great for learning about ICT tools. I found this copy on teacher tube. This is actually not the site we will show you today but it will show you how similar they all are and it is a good video as an introduction.
  • I chose Diigo as it options to use sticky notes and highlighters. Delicious is also very popular in education but Yahoo, who own it, are looking for someone to take it over as it does not have a strategic fit into the company. When many people heard this they decided to move their bookmarks to diigo. Feel free to try any others but we will focus today on Diigo. They all take on the same principals so you can transfer skills.
  • Although you have a username, your full name will still be seen by others.
  • We have a school Diigo group to share between the staff. I have also set up one for students to look at. I add any website we use to it so they can go back and find them. The kids have the address to the public site. At the moment they can’t add to it but I am planning on setting up student users this year also.
