Diigo Blog » Diigo Lists vs. Google Notebook - 0 views

  •  
    1. Google Notebook is very much similar to Diigo Lists. In Diigo Lists, you can organize, share and display specific collections of bookmarks. Once you add bookmarks to your list, you can easily re-arrange the collections by drag-and-drop, and add "section". And you can publish a Diigo list as an HTML document. 2. In Diigo, an item in a list is also saved separately as a bookmark (which can be tagged). So in this sense, Diigo integrates both Google Notebook and Google Bookmark. 3. Diigo also has the important advantage that "clippings" are really "highlights" on the original web pages and will be shown as such when you re-visit the web pages, reminding you the exact context of the clippings. 4. Another unique Diigo list feature: once you create a list, click the " WebSlides" button, you can browse, play and annotate any list of URLs as a slide show! It's great for content browsing, sharing, and creating unique presentations based on web content.Here is an example of a Diigo List, consisting of recent reviews of Diigo, and watch the Diigo List / WebSlides in action! 5. Google Notebook is a bit more flexible in that an item does not have to be tied to a webpage. Diigo Lists will soon be upgraded to provide this flexibility and a lot more in the near future.

myVRSpot - 8 views

  •  
    MyVRSpot is the most innovative way to connect true Web 2.0 with curriculum content, combining elements similar to the online publishing of YouTube and the personal space of Facebook.  MyVRSpot provides students with a hosted web space (webspot) to upload their videos, audio files, and pictures, all while exploring in the District's "safe backyard."  All media is controlled and monitored before going online for others to view.  This allows for students to still become those "push button" publishers without the district having to worry about inappropriate content within a multimedia sharing environment.  With MyVRSpot, students become researchers, developers, and producers of their own webspot, giving them the sense of ownership.

Social Collider - 0 views

  • This experiment explores these possibilities by starting with messages on the microblogging-platform Twitter. One can search for usernames or topics, which are tracked through time and visualized much like the way a particle collider draws pictures of subatomic matter. Posts that didn't resonate with anyone just connect to the next item in the stream. The ones that did, however, spin off and horizontally link to users or topics who relate to them, either directly or in terms of their content.

    interesting tool. Haven't quite figured out how to interpret the visual yet though :-)

Kids Create -- and Critique on -- Social Networks | Edutopia - 1 views

  • "With Web 2.0, there's a strong impetus to make connections," says University of Minnesota researcher Christine Greenhow, who studies how people learn and teach with social networking. "It's not just creating content. It's creating content to share."
  • And once they share their creations, kids can access one of the richest parts of this learning cycle: the exchange that follows. "While the ability to publish and to share is powerful in and of itself, most of the learning occurs in the connections and conversation that occur after we publish," argues education blogger Will Richardson (a member of The George Lucas Educational Foundation's National Advisory Council).
  • In this online exchange, students can learn from their peers and simultaneously practice important soft skills -- namely, how to accept feedback and to usefully critique others" work.

  • Using tools such as the social-network-creation site Ning, teachers can easily develop their own networks, Mosea says. "It is better to create your own," he argues. "If a teacher creates his or her own network, students will post as if their teacher is watching them, and they'll tend to be more safe. "You can build social networks around the curriculum," Mosea adds, "so you can use them as a teaching resource or another tool." An online social network is another tool -- but it's a tool with an advantage: It wasn't just imposed by teachers; the students have chosen it.

Steve Hargadon: New Ning Plans: The Good, The Bad, and the Unknown - 10 views

  • The Good:
  • The Bad:
  • API access to networks will be a plus to organizations really wanting to research the value and use of educational social networking.  Several graduate students have looked closely at my Classroom 2.0 network and this kind of access will make deeper scholarship possible.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • Single sign-on / alternative authentication has been a highly desired feature from Ning in the past, and will potentially allow institutions and organizations with existing membership bases to incorporate access to Ning into their existing services.  It seems like there will be a couple of other somewhat intriguing options here as well, including logging in using Facebook or Twitter authentication.  What's not entirely clear in the material--or, according to John, to Ning yet--is if these features will be included as part of the Pro service or an extra fee.  
  • If you don't pay even the minimal amount, currently your network and all its content will disappear 30 days after the July shift.  While Ning will likely provide some capability to get a network back within some limited period of time, the idea that created content is not "grandfathered in" and retained even in some format feels bad.  I'm not sure how bad it actually is, but I'm hoping they reconsider this in some way and while not allowing those networks be functional, it would be nice to have the content statically available for posterity.  I'm also thinking about all the networks that will be created in the future--the idea that if for some reason you stop paying Ning all of the contributions "disappear forever" will be a mental and real roadblock to using the service.
  • The "major educational company" that has no name could be good or bad.  I'm assured it will be good, but I can imagine more than one large educational company whose providing Ning Mini networks for free would be looked upon with suspicion.  What's also not spelled out is what kind of control that company will have, their ability to market or message to the creators and members of the networks, and if there will be any advertising by that company on the networks.
