Diigo is a fantastic tool. One I’ve used for quite some time now to keep my bookmarks organized and available no matter where I am. During the workshop, Alan said something to the effect of, “In the library, Dewey did all the tagging. Today, we have to teach kids how to do this.”
Ed Tech Ideas: I teach 3 different grade levels, and my different classes are always researching for one project or another. Students are always finding great sites, but at best, they bookmark it to their local computer, never to be seen by others. Now with our Diigo groups (I created one for each grade level), kids learn how to tag, organize, and share their finds with everyone else in the group. Everyone benefits from group knowledge, and the students learn an important skill that will stay with them and grow throughout their academic lives.
now I use the Diigo browser tool because it is so much better at annotating, archiving and linking to other communities - in fact Diigo has transformed my research recently because of its amazing level of functionality. This is another facet of working with web 2.0 - if I find something supercedes and is superior to other tools I won’t hesitate to ditch those and migrate to the newer development.
Diigo is a particularly smart tool in that it enables me to drill down to information I want and annotate it online quickly and dynamically.
Diigo let´s you bookmark, highlight and sticky-note the Internet! A really remarkable research tool that should be used by every teacher and student worldwide! >
What´s really exciting is that you can share these annotations by making them "public" with everyone using Diigo or even create/join a group. This means if you use Diigo and visit a website I highlighted some text and made a sticky note about - YOU CAN SEE IT TOO:) >
I just created the > Education Revolutionaries Group > at Diigo: >
"This Diigo Group is all about new and innovative education solutions on the Internet. Search, bookmark, highlight and sticky-note the world of online education together with us. Let´s Rock´N´Roll!" >

I admit that I have been struggling to even wrap my brain around many of the new web apps out there that others seem to be raving about…blogs and wikis seem almost old school as learners move to Diigo and Second Life….mostly it’s a matter of time, but sometimes I am just overwhelmed by the ideas of other teachers with amazing creativity and vision.
People like Jeff Utecht, Karl Fisch and Clay Burell blow me away (links to their blogs are to the left)…how they find the time to develop their own knowledge and share with others is beyond me…but probably the teacher that I am most in awe of is Vicki Davis…Vicki’s CoolCatTeacher blog is a veritable smorgasboard of practical applications and ideas, but also has a real mix of great vision.

GREAT ONLINE OFFERINGS
Okay, Diigo is really cool. Especially in a job like mine where I do a lot of research. Diigo is a social annotation site so if you like surfing the net and want to leave notes on your favourite websites, Diigo is the program to do it. Registration is free and there is no download required for basic Diigo. It allows you to leave virtual "sticky notes" on the websites you visit. The really cool part? You can share your "online" notes with people of your choosing.
