Using Diigo in the Classroom

Maggie Tsai from Diigo is doing a workshop this Saturday morning (Feb 2) as part of the local Classroom 2.0 workshops organized by Steve Hargadon. She’s looking for educators who are currently using Diigo in their classrooms to showcase in her workshop. If you are using Diigo with students, could you please comment on this post or send me an email so I can pass your info on to Maggie?

If you aren’t familiar with it, Diigo is a social bookmarking tool with extra features like highlighting and adding sticky notes. My daily bookmarks posts are created automatically with Diigo; any time you see a quote from a site in my bookmarks posts, I used Diigo’s highlight feature.

They also have something called Webslides that allows you to create a “tour” of webpages based on your bookmarks. Here’s one I created from some of my links for the MS Science course I’m developing. Note that these aren’t in any particular order; I just left them in the order I bookmarked them. This seems like something that could be really beneficial in synchronous online training like webinars, although I’ve never seen it used for that.

In case you were wondering, no, I’m not being paid. I just like Diigo. So, if you can help Maggie out and would like your classroom showcased, please let me know!
