Diigo is a web service that allows you to collect and highlight and remember the information that you want to across the web. It runs on any modern browser, as well as the Android and iOS platforms. In this post we will show you how to easily add the Diigo diigolet to your iPad so that you may use the fun features of the Diigo toolbar.
The Diigo diigolet has some nice features on the iPad. When it is first activated, it will ask you to login (use the same credentials as diigo.com). The Diigo toolbar will appear at the top of the page. Notice that there are several options available to you–Bookmark–Highlighter–Floating Sticking Note–Comment. The options are all simple to use.
The one that may confuse you is the Highlighter option. To use it, simply tap and hold and then bring the blue overlay over the area that you want highlighted–THEN tap the Highlight button.
The SAMR model has been around for a while, but I think it is time for a revisit. Most of us have been working with some element or other of 1 to 1 access, but has our pedagogy – the way we use the technology to teach in our classes – changed or shifted in that time? I would like you to take some time to reflect on how you are using ICT in your classroom. Think about which level of SAMR you are at, and what steps you can take to get to the next level.
