Social Bookmarking with Diigo

Social bookmarking is one of the the 5 things that Sue Waters (the Edublogger) suggests you should be doing to create your own PLN (Personal Learning Network).  One of  the best things I’ve ever done is to create an account with Diigo and join groups such as Classroom 2.0Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers, Teacher-Librarians and Engaging Digital Natives.

The beauty of social bookmarking is that each week, people around the world bookmark websites and share them with one of their groups as they save them. If you have joined one of these groups, you will be sent an email each week with all the sites bookmarked during that week.  I feel as if a constant stream of ‘treasures’ is being dropped into my lap without me having to search for them – all I have to do is sift through them and take out the ones I think might be useful to me.  As well as that, I can look at sites that other people have tagged with the same tags I have used, and pick up new sites that way.

Using Diigo in the classroom, you can set up a group for your students with a unique name that only has significance to them, and then all of your students can save to this group as they find useful sites. You can also highlight sections of the text on a website and add a sticky note to it that is only visible to Diigo users, or one that is totally private for your group.

The first step is to join Diigo, then download the Diigo toolbar onto your computer, which allows you to easily check your Diigo homepage, bookmark sites, and add highlighting or sticky notes.
