Diigohttp://diigo.com@jasonschmidt123This is a great way for me to share interesting websites with colleagues and students. The annotation tools are very powerful and make for interesting discussion tools.I'll second Diigo. We have groups for our staff to contribute resources to. @j_allenyeah Diigo is totally awesomeI use both Diigo and delicious daily to keep track of stuff"We have set up content area groups to share resources district-wideDiigo has cleaner layout for my eyes than Delicious. Like the stickie note & highlighting features. Use this w/Ss with edu acct. (@DoremiGirl)Diigo is a fantastic tool that allows me to easily share resources with other teachers and to keep a more reliable archive for myself. I can access my bookmarks from any computer with access to the internet. It's also a good way for students to keep track of research resources and other useful things. (@ellsbeth)We use diigo to help build background knowledge. When we read The Road by Cormac McCarthy, students often do not have a deep religious background and posting and annotating sites that will help fill that void has become invaluable. (@mrseea16)
