Don LourceyStatesville, NCNorth Carolina Virtual SchoolI use Diigo pretty frequently primarily as a means to build and engage in a Professional Learning Community. I belong to several groups and through those groups I can follow the resources and links of various leaders. I have created a few groups for the people I work with throughout the state. I use Diigo with our staff to post key articles and latest research on blended learning, online education, reform efforts, and online instructional best practices. I have also created a group for several districts as we have studied Curtis Bonk's The World is Open and the sources we have collected primarily focus on the chapter content for each of his 10 Openers in Education. Great resources for building a community through shared resources.Classroom 2.0Diigo in EducationEdTech Talkhttp://www.diigo.com/user/dlourcey

I love being able to bookmark and go back to it later!Classroom 2.0 LiveLeadership for Mobile Learning InitiativeSpecial education technology integrationhttp://www.diigo.com/user/Nlakusta
Tom MoncriefMonroe, NCResearch, Development and Innovation Specialist (World Languages and Arts Education)Like many other Web 2.0 applications, Diigo provides a mechanism for a repository of collective research. 21st century Professional Learning is not always about a 1.0 CEU course, but rather a collaboration of learning and learners. When one thinks of collaboration and giving a definition to it, there is a Latin work inside "Labor". Diigo provides the opportunity for the "Labor" of the professional exchange to be on a consistent platform. The Group Tag dictionary is a powerful (and unique to Diigo) tool that allows communities to have a common tagging language.
Steven AndersonWinston Salem, NCDistrict Instructional Technologist, Winston-Salem/Forsyth County SchoolsDiigo is my tool of choice for gathering, organizing and storing web content. I have Diigo bookmarklets and toolbars install on all my machines and teach my teachers how to do the same. Instead of having a list of Favorites that lives on one machine or one network, Diigo allows me to take my web content anywhere in the world I have an internet connection. But it also allows me to tag and file my content so I can find it easier. I can't begin to remember all approx 2500 saves I have but I can remember the tags I use to narrow my search. But more than that if the user is an educator they can get free educator account that allows them to create log ins for students, organize groups of saves and push them out for projects and learning. And the students can share their saves with each other, all in the safety of the system. I also like using Diigo to search when beginning researching a topic because I find it is sometimes easier to cancel out the noise that I often find on Google.

Kyle WoodGastonia, NCInstructional Technology Facilitator, Gaston County Schools and Online CTE Teacher, NCVPSWe are slowly adopting Diigo as part of our set of tools for our PLN. It is very small right now, but our main purpose has been to aggregate resources each of us find for the group as opposed to its individual use. I prefer the Diigolet myself, but I really love how I can bookmark something for myself and immediately see a dropdown menu to select any groups to which I belong and want to share. We monitor what comes in and tag it very specifically because we distribute certain tags to feed readers within groups on our Ning, so that lurking non-users can still access the specific resources that might interest them without having to learn Diigo and all of the searching techniques.Classroom 2.0EducatorsDiscovery Educators Networkhttp://diigo.com/user/gastondigital
Michael WalkerEdina, MNSecondary Technology Integration SpecialistI have been using Diigo since I first saw it in the spring of 2008, and really like it. I have created groups for the Communities of Practice I facilitate, and also use the send e-mail feature for sharing links with leaders in my district. I also mine the e-mailed group links each week for items I'm interested in.EducatorsDiscovery Educators NetworkTeaching with Tabletshttp://www.diigo.com/user/micwalker?tab=3
Doreen LaskiewiczMillstone, NJMusic Teacher, PD Committee ChairI'm just starting to gather sites as resources for district PD. I use Diigo so I can assess these sources in different places. Work, home, phone, iPod, etc. I hope to continue to use it to also share with my fellow teachers to help them along in their tech integration journey.http://www.diigo.com/user/doemiso
Jason SchmidtOmaha, Nebraska3-4 teacher in Lutheran elementary school, SMART certified trainerThe ability to access my bookmarks, annotations, and notes from anywhere makes Diigo my tool of choice. I find it a really easy tool to use to filter the information that I constantly get from my Twitter stream into manageable chunks. I also find Diigo as a great way to find instructional materials. When I am looking for something specific in my instruction, I start with Diigo (and Delicious) before I head to Google. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I find what I am looking for in Diigo. The groups function is also great for gaining access to new resources. It is also very helpful to me in trainings that I conduct because sharing is really easy. Even if participants don't use Diigo, they still can access my lists.Diigo in EducationInteractive White Boards in the ClassroomLutheran Teachershttp://www.diigo.com/user/jasonschmidt123
Leslie NoggleGastonia, North CarolinaInstructional Technology Facilitator for Gaston County Schools, Adjunct CIT Instructor at Cleveland Community College Personally, I have been using Diigo for a little over a year and I love how easy it is to Bookmark sites and create lists. I love that right from whatever web page I am on, I can see if the groups I follow have already bookmarked it and what comments have been made or share it with followers myself. I think what makes it so powerful is the ability to create both groups and lists. It is great to be able to to share sites with relevant information to certain groups the sites to pertain to or to share lists with people who need information but don't have Diigo.Classroom 2.0Clif's Notes on EdTechTeaching with Technologyhttp://www.diigo.com/user/lnoggle
Beth CaseLubbock, TXDoctoral Student, Instructional TechnologyI like seeing what other people have discovered and recommend. It saves me the time and hassle of searching and evaluating on my own. There are millions of sites and resources out there, how do you find the good ones? I see which ones have been saved the most on Diigo. Also, we have used Diigo in class to share bookmarks related to the class with fellow students.Classroom 2.0Digital Storytellinghttp://www.diigo.com/user/delizabeth
Patrick BlackMt. Prospect, ILSpecial education teacher for students with significant cognitive disabilitiesI love finding and sharing links with colleagues and co-workers. The sites that are shared are topical and very appropriate for many levels of students. Having the opportunity to customize what groups I belong too, makes it a very useful too for many other teachers too. It also is a great way to share lots of information with parents and others. Having a list function just makes it easy. It easy to use and powerful!AT in SPEDDiigo in EducationSp ed. in the 21st Centuryhttp://www.diigo.com/user/teachntech

Justin K. ReeveOgden, UTWeb Manager, Weber School DistrictDiigo is easily in my top 5 lists of useful educational tools. It's a great resource sharing tool. I'd love to see more of our teachers using it. I seldom even use native browser bookmarking anymore, because the ability to access your bookmarks from anywhere is so invaluable, and it's easy to search your bookmarks through the tags you select. The ability to share bookmarks with others makes Diigo an important part of my Personal Learning Network.Cool Tools & Ed TechTwitter FreaksResources for Languageshttp://www.diigo.com/user/justinreeve
Herman A. Hall IVKill Devil Hills, NCSpanish Language EducatorIt's a great platform for literacy development in both Spanish and English. PostIng guided reading questions to webpages with relative and interactive content makes for great cultural awareness and literacy building tools. Plus you can reuse the materials once developed and they are cloud-based making easy access and deployment.

Yoon Soo LimPhiladelphia, PAPreK-8 Music Dept. ChairI like Diigo over Delicious for these reasons: The interface is simpler and cleaner. I can create class accounts w/o email address and guide my students' research or check their research progress. Diigo highlighters help me remember what I liked reading in an article. I like it even more that when I bookmark it, it saves the highlighted portion as a quote. I like using the sticky note so that I can post notes or have students post notes on articles. I also like following groups of teachers who share resources. Teaching Musicmusictechieteachers Wissahickon eToolBoxhttp://www.diigo.com/user/yoonslim
Alex RosenwaldFreehold, NJHS Chemistry/Physics, Technology FacilitatorEven though I'm a novice to Diigo, I've found it to be the most powerful means of disseminating resources that I get through my budding PLN to my colleagues. I like the annotation/highlighting aspect and it allows me to focus on key points. I'm still processing how I can use it for instructional purposes, but I foresee my use of it to increase the more comfortable I get with it.http://www.diigo.com/user/arosey
Christopher ListerChilliwack, B.C. CanadaElementary school teacher 4-7Well, I use Diigo with my PLN to share links, resources, and articles. I don't often know what my PLN are reading but this tool I can. I also use it as a personal resource using the search option, as well as connecting with other education professionals. When using Diigo I particularly like the sticky note and highlighter options when researching.Teaching and learning with web2.0classroom 2.0it's elementaryhttp://www.diigo.com/user/Mr_Lister
Barbara MooseSalisbury, NCElementary Instructional Technology Facilitator/Specialist 2010 NCTIES Conference Chair 2010-2011 President NCTIES (NC Tech in Ed Society, ISTE Affiliate)Clif Mims introduced me to Diigo and it quickly became my favorite way to keep and share bookmarks as I migrated my bookmarks from delicious (although my Diigo setting automatically post to delicious, too). Diigo has helped me grow myy PLN and had provided so many quality contacts and resources through its groups. I am impressed by Diigo's versatility, but I must admit that I don't use it to it's full capability. I have a closed group for teachers in my school and am working to help them learn to utilize it.Clif's Notes on EdTechNC EdTechCool Tools & Ed Techhttp://www.diigo.com/user/bmoose

Dean MantzSterling, KansasNetwork Coordinator/Technology Integration Specialist. I also teach a Technology in the Classroom course for local collegeI started using Diigo summer of 2009. I too have used it as my predominate bookmarking site after importing from local machine and Delicious. Maggie & Diigo team are very good at listening to their users and especially educators. When I have had issues after providing PD on Diigo, Maggie would personally communicate with me until issue was resolved. I strongly suggest you use the toolbar in Firefox since it provides additional features not included in the Diigolet for Chrome & Safari. Really like how you can have bookmarks sent to Delicious as a backup along with saving your "Favorite Tweets" or even taking screen shots via their capture mode feature.Sterling CollegeEducatorsDiscovery Educator Networkhttp://www.diigo.com/user/dmantz7
Beth SwantzKalona, IowaMS/HS Librarian in one district, technology coordinator in anotherI started using Diigo after my laptop crashed and I lost all my bookmarks. Moving between buildings and districts this tool has been a life-saver! I learn TONS from the groups I follow on Diigo. I forward tools and suggested sites to the appropriate people in my buildings. I also use my own diigo lists to organize and catagorize before sharing.

Paul McKeanRochdale, UKBolton CollegeI use Diigo to share bookmarks with my PLN. I often Tweet links to specific searches within my Diigo for example "iPad apps", depending on the topics which are being discussed. I also use Diigo as a more personal bookmarking tool, ensuring that I include as many metatags as are relevant, often tagging bookmarks with 10 plus tags. This certainly helps in the long run as the bookmarks are much easier to find again.Diigo in Educationhttp://www.diigo.com/user/moodlemckean

Siri AndersonBemidji, MNBemidji State UniversityI create Diigo groups for each online class that I teach so students will have access to our resources in perpetuity. I work in teacher education so I am excited to be teaching new teachers the value of this organizational tool. I also use Diigo as a volunteer activity -- I embed Diigo widgets in public classroom teachers web pages and then I tag my finds in a way that they will land on their pages. This keeps their families up to date with new resources to explore for appropriate grade level content.

Randolph HollingsworthLexington, KYUniversity of KentuckyThis was a terrific tool for my undergraduate history students working on their projects in an open educational resource on the history of KY women in the civil rights era (www.kywcrh.org) - it helped them get going with the interrelationships needed to ascertain whether a source is credible or not... but since they were new to the idea of peer review on annotated bibliographies (usually this sort of work is turned in and not much of their work is discussed by their classmates), I'm not sure they were particularly helpful all the time for each other's entries. Would love to hear how other instructors got a more rigorous peer review culture going!Diigo in Educationhttp://groups.diigo.com/group/kywcrh

Matt EstermanSydney, AustraliaBrigidine College, St IvesWe have used Diigo as a staff to collate links that we find and share them with each other quickly and easily (BCSI-History etc.) In the classroom, despite initial apprehension from students, using Diigo for research in History and English is a breeze and reduces time-wasting, mindless browsing on general search engines.
