Getting Started with Firefox extension - Diigo help - 5 views

  •  Feature Highlight: Highlights Diigo saves the day with "highlights". Highlights let you select the important snippets on a page and store them in your library with the page's bookmark. Let's try it. Just open a page, maybe one of your old-school bookmarks or one of your new cat bookmarks, and find the information on that page you actually care about. Select that important text. Got it? Okay, now put your hemet on, 'cause this might blow your mind! Click the highlight icon on the Diigo toolbar. It's the one with the "T" on a page with a yellow highlighter. You will notice that the selected text gets a yellow background. This means that the text has been saved in your library, and as long as you have the Diigo add-on the text will be highlighted on the page! How's that for easy?   Now you've highlighted the text. It will appear in your library within the bookmark for the page it is on. Go to your library and you can see how it works. If you're not sure how to get to your library, just click the second icon on the toolbar (Diigo icon to the left of the search bar) and then select "My Library »".
  • Sticky Notes on the Web What? I can put a sticky note on a Web Web? How? Oh, that's right! Diigo. Just right-click anywhere on the Web and choose to "add a floating sticky note". Type up your note and choose "Post", then move the note anywhere on the Web. You have to type a note first, before you move it where you want, otherwise there's nothing to move!

iLearn Technology » Education Diigo - 1 views

  • What it is:  Education Diigo offers k-12 and higher ed educators premium Diigo accounts!  The premium accounts provide the ability to create student accounts for whole classes, students of the same class are automatically set up as a Diigo group so they can easily share bookmarks, annotations, and group forums, privacy settings so that only classmates and teachers can communicate with students, and any advertisments on Education Diigo are education related.  If you aren’t familiar with Diigo, it is a social bookmarking website where students can collaborate on the web.  Diigo works in to a project based learning environment nicely and allows for exploratory learning and collaboration.  
  • Education Diigo is an outstanding place for students to solve problems together.  Provide students with a problem and send them on a web scavenger hunt to find the answer, students can post their findings and notes about their findings on Diigo.  Students can collaborate online to solve the problem.  Education Diigo is also a great place for “teachers to highlight critical information within text and images and write comments directly on the web webs, to collect and organize series of web webs and web sites into coherent and thematic sets, and to facilitate online conversations within the context of the materials themselves.”  This feature makes Education Diigo a great place to create webquest type lessons and virtual field trips around the web.    Diigo also allows teachers to collaborate and share resources among themselve. Education Diigo is a must for students who are learning to complete web-based research!

Install the free Readability add-on for Chrome, Firefox and Apple Safari - 22 views

  •  
    Readability is an elegant online application for 'decluttering' and customizing web webs to meet the needs of the individual reader. With the click of a button, Readability removes advertising, sidebars and other distracting clutter from webwebs. Content is presented in a style chosen by the reader, with preferred font web, margin-width, and contrast. I've shared no other application with educators that has drawn more emphatic exclamations of amazement and appreciation.

  • Would you like to know how long it takes to load a webweb? This program will measure the time for you. Enter the URL to be measured and watch the top of the window. The StopWatch can only measure websites that can be displayed in a frame. Some websites use javascript to break out of frames. This is not a StopWatch bug.

Unit Structures - Twitter as Courseware - 0 views

  • When I log into BlackBoard, I see about 30 different things I can do, and for each I have to click a link and go to a page to do the action.  Twitter strips away the features, instead using an inherently flexible textual space to facilitate communication, accomplishing the same goal of other feature-ridden “course technology.
  • I see Twitter’s artificial limit on post size as an important factor in classroom success.  First, it keeps the information space managable, meaning information is economized and easily retrievable
  • Twitter’s short form as a communication equalizer
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • Twitter is the opposite of segmentation, forcing all communication through a single, flexible channel.  This creates the impression of activity, again stimulating discussion.
  • “overfunctioning” leads to a segmentation of communication,
  • or example, a class must have an email list, a forum, website/CMS, each with its own space and identity.
    • Cris Harshman
       
      With newer web-based applications, this is no longer the case. For example, Wordpress will deliver RSS (replaces listserv), a static front web with organized sub-webs and articles (replaces CMS) and a built-in forum. There's no need to adopt Twitter, which replaces only the listserv.

Print: These Lectures Are Gone in 60 Seconds - Chronicle.com - 0 views

  • HOW TO CREATE A ONE-MINUTE LECTURE Professors spend a lot of time crafting hourlong lectures. The prospect of boiling them down to 60 seconds — or even five minutes — may seem daunting. David Penrose, a course designer for SunGard Higher Education who developed San Juan College's microlectures, suggests that it can be done in five steps: 1. List the key concepts you are trying to convey in the 60-minute lecture. That series of phrases will form the core of your microlecture. 2. Write a 15 to 30-second introduction and conclusion. They will provide context for your key concepts. 3. Record these three elements using a microphone and Web camera. (The college information-technology department can provide advice and facilities.) If you want to produce an audio-only lecture, no Webcam is necessary. The finished product should be 60 seconds to three minutes long. 4. Design an assignment to follow the lecture that will direct students to readings or activities that allow them to explore the key concepts. Combined with a written assignment, that should allow students to learn the material. 5. Upload the video and assignment to your course-management software.   http://chronicle.com Section: Information Technology Volume 55, Issue 26, Web A13
