    * Think of a class you taught or are planning to teach, or a teacher training workshop you are presenting . How could you incorporate a Diigo feature to encourage students/educators to be teleplanters?

    * Add your lesson plan idea to our Discussion Forum.

    @Carla
    Very good question. I am in charge of the virtual environment at the school where I work. I am in charge of the website content and give advice to my colleagues on ICT matters. Actually, I am supposed to teach my colleages and students how to bookmark so this discussion will be very enriching to me.

    Dear Nelba,

    This is exactly what I used to do at my school when I was in Brazil. I don't want to throw my ideas here because I really want to see what everybody has to say, but do you envision creating, for example, a group for your school in Diigo and showing educators how to bookmark and share stuff with each other through the group? For the past weeks, I've been amazed how much I've been learning from our the LearningwithComputers group bookmarks. Every day there's a treasure. So, I've been thinking about ways to disseminate this concept of sharing in the read/write web and thought that Diigo would be a good start for reluctant teachers as they can easily receive updates by mail and we could start by sending very relevant links and encouraging, at least, some to share. What do you think?

    Dear Carla and all :
    as always it's a pleasure to be learning by your side.
    I wondered what to do and I did it:

    I created a list to one of my courses where my students themselves brought a video about environment : A beautiful lie.
    It was a really good experience because of the richness of their comments. Some of them in a good English , some of them in Spanglish.

    I had the idea to go on with that topic so I made a list with three pages (just an experiment) I highlighted some paragraphs and sticked notes suggesting the activity we're going to do with that.
    Then I got the widget and embeded into my blog.

    I couldn't believe it. I really like it and I think it's going to be visually appealling to my students.

    Take a look at it:: http://endelvallesi.blogspot.com/

    I'd prefer the bigger option, but we can't see it complete because of Blog's layout. I resized it .

    A hug
    Susana

    Wow, Susana, I just loved your idea of tweaking two features in one for students. In fact, you used three features, creating a list, adding highlight and sticky notes, and using the Webslides. Fantastic! I loved the way you guided and "talked" to students in the sticky notes. There are no limits to creativity, are there?

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

    Hello Carla:

    Thanks for sharing with us all your excellent ideas about integrating diigo into our classrooms and for starting a new thread in this discussion.

    I usually run workshops to train teachers in the use of some Web 2.0 tools. I have recently run two workshops about blogs and I incorporated a section called Forum. I think diigo could help me create a better space for discussion when running workshops http://blogsxxviiendil.wordpress.com/foro/ and to encourage participants to socialise http://blogsxxviiendil.wordpress.com/e-cafe/.

    What do you think?

    Regards,

    Teadira

    Hi, Teadira.

    I think you're right. The Forum here has a great potential for teacher training because then they'll realize it's not only the Forum that they could profit from. Also, if you could link the Forum discussion with a resource that you bookmarked and shared some annotations with the group, even richer!

    If you use it, let us know how it went.

    Beijos,
    Carla

    Susana: Let me check if I understand since I am not very familiar with Diigo.
    You opened a list for your course and your students opened their own accounts in Diigo.
    Is that right?

    Dear Nelba:

    It's easier than that!!!

    I made a list, you can create it with : My list.
    I chose three pages I wanted my students to visit and added those pages to the list.
    I read them and highlighted the main ideas.
    You have to be careful with that option. Make it public, if don't, your students won't be able to see the highlighted paragraphs. (it was my first mistake, hahaha)

    With the sticky notes tool I added the activities, public , too.
    Then I went to WEBSLIDES option . Once there you go to customize slides (if you want to ) and finally, to GET WEBSLIDES WIDGETS.
    You copy the URL and paste it in your blog or website.

    And VOILA !!!

    You're going to be really happy with the result, your students just visit your blog and with a short explanation they're ready to go there.

    Try it and tell me !!! Anything you need in the move, just ask me. I'm here to help you. (I'm not an expert, but I can learn with you,hahaha)

    A huge hug
    Susana

    Hey, Susana, you have become a Diigo expert! congrats!

    Sorry for my insistance, but after creating the list: Can your students see this list without Diigo registration? or must they have a Diigo account to see this list?

    Hugs, Nelba

    Hi Nelba:

    Yes, they can see it, without having a Diigo account. That's why it's so easy !! No complications.
    If you click on the central arrow you can open the webslide.
    The problem appears if you click on the bottom (maybe webslide's icon )

    I have tested it with my students and it really works !!!
    But I also know that there's a chance to enter to Diigo and that way you are asked to sign in.
    Remember it only happens if you don't click on the central big arrow.

    Good luck and enjoy it.
    A big hug
    Susana.

    Any question, I'm here to help you. (if I can, remember, I'm learning just like you !!!)
