  • Organization in Chaos Social Knowledge Platform (Delicious & Diigo)
  • Why bookmarking?
    • There are great Web 2.0 resources for the classroom, with new tools appearing all the time and others disappearing. I'd love to hear how folks manage them - how do you assess new tools, organize them, share them with teachers and students at your schools, etc.
    • Mary Beth B
  • Your network
    • I make use of Diigo, my own account and the groups in Diigo like http://groups.diigo.com/group/classroom20
    • I am a firm believer in social bookmarking.
    • Judith R
  • Cut and paste links
    • In the past we copied links to MS Word, problem with categorization, updating, removing, ‘paper-based’ retrieval, singular lens…

  • or this (FF bookmarks)
  • Sharing bookmarks
    • Many sites now embed bookmark links or RSS feeds.
  • Delicious and Diigo
  • Use Tags
    • A tag is simply a word you can use to describe a bookmark. Unlike folders, you make up tags when you need them and you can use as many as you like. The result is a better way to organize your bookmarks and a great way to discover interesting things on the Web.
  • Use of Tags: Content Threads
    • Can be used by all constituents (students to admin), from individual to group collections
    • Independent contributors to shared tag
    • Asynchronous or in synchronous learning mediums
    • Archive collections
    • Another expert filter
  • Flickr tags
  • Browser widget
    • Place buttons in browser which makes tagging and collection of tagged items easy.
  • Diigo toolbar (more than a social bookmarking tool)
  • Multiple views
  • Tag Teams: Math
    • Delicious as an alternative search engine. You can search by the tag to view a collection gathered by other users with that particular tag. i.e. math7
  • Social knowledge platform
    • Collaborative writing teams for learning and evaluation situations (LES)
    • Common threads and resources for teachers
    • Ranking support popularity = usability
    • Teacher created resources = peer reviewed
  • Science Work Teams
  • Collaborative Groups
    • Works very well in conjunction with current collaborative tools (Google docs)
    • Tagged sources create support for creating meaningful learning resources
  • Subscriptions
    • Subscribe to particular tags OR a person’s network
  • PLE: Network (note following George S.)
  • Teaching and Learning Groups
  • Diigolet
    • Multiple options to gather immediate information
    • Adds greater features for students, such as annotations and highlighting that are saved
    • Important skill for for today’s learners
  • Group: Teacher console
  • For students
    • Contribute links to the class… more resources on a topic
    • Collaborate on research… quality of sources
    • Backtrack.. online record of resources
    • Sharable with peers, support tools
    • Familiar with tagging (21 st century skill)
    • Lecturer tool, archive of lesson resources online
    • Tools work together Diigo, Delicious, Google Marker, Google Docs
  • RSS feeds to collect bookmarks You can embed links into your blog as a link roll.
  • Group Functions (Use of RSS Feeds : iGoogle)
    • Easily track who; what; when item has been contributed and corresponding writing through RSS feeds.
    • Improves time management and workflow
  • Continual Learning
    • As we expand our use of cloud computing, use of tagging and social bookmarking tools gain relevance
    • This is an essential skill for our PLE
    • Tools that archive and pull content are replacing push and manual search tools
    • Hunting and gathering aggregators are key skills in navigating cloud sources
  • Affordances
    • Interaction on resources through tags, comments and annotations,
    • Aggregation or resources through use of tags, user or groups
    • Part of my personal learning and knowledge management system
  • You can create an archive
    • If you still need the links the traditional route.. You can EXPORT (key to sustainability) to an .html file.
  • Why Social Bookmarking
    • Collaboration
    • Wisdom of the crowd
    • Collective organization
    • Access to bookmarks, “organization in chaos”
    • Promotes networking
    • More foot traffic, less yellow pages
