Bookmarking, but on web. Benefits – can use many computers – ie Cloud ComputingTagging
Collective Intelligence – more people bkmark it – the better it is? maybeCan follow other people and other groups – I get daily emails from the group Diigo in Education
More than social bookmarking, Diigo has notetaking tools. If these links don’t work during presentation, use the following slides instead)Log in Take on a tour of my libraryShow annotationsSee my notes? See my tags? Expand the tags.Saved by how many people? Click on them – expand your network.See the toolbar? Go over it – There is also a Diigolet which I will show you how easy it is to use.Sites, seth’s blog, diigolet
This is one of my libraries.See my notes? See my tags?See the toolbar? Go over it – There is also a Diigolet which I will show you how easy it is to use.
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?
