Diigo

Diigo.com

Diigo is a social bookmarking site which can be used for many purposes such as sharing of resources or comments and annotations on any web page.

As an educator it allows me to benefit from the useful resources found by others. This information can also be reused and shared in other ways. It also allows others to benefit from being able to view my bookmarks which serves as a time saver in that we don’t have to start from scratch to find good useful sites, I can search through useful websites others have already found. It also allows me to save websites and resources to view or re-visit later and to organise bookmarks and access them from any computer.

Diigo can be extremely handy when teachers are using Web sites with their classes. If the teacher displays a site via projector and then highlights a passage or inserts a note, those changes will remain for future classes. Students also can view the altered Web sites via Diigo. Teachers can also research / Inquiry – share useful links, collate favourite classroom games, professional development (Curate favourite websites) and join Diigo education groups. I am having some trouble finding an online example of Diigo being used in the early childhood context, but I will endeavour to continue searching and hopefully find a link.
