Why We Like Diigo - School Computing - 0 views

  •  
    We all use the web to research information, but until recently this meant saving copies of web pages as files or printing them out as you visit them in order to collect, save, highlight, or annotate each one. A new web browser tool has made it possible to do all of this electronically. I'm now able to mark up web pages as easily as if I were using a yellow highlighter and a red pen. When I return to those web pages my annotations are still there, and I can also choose to see others' annotations. I no longer need to copy and paste between web pages and Word to take notes, and to keep track of what came from where. This process is all digitally facilitated with the Diigo social bookmarking and annotating tool. This tool has shifted the way I read the world wide web to be much more active. Diigo (http://www.diigo.com) keeps track of my annotations and categorizes the sites based on the tags I specify. This ability to interact with websites in the same way I use a paper textbook means that I can highlight passages, "dog-ear" important pages, and scribble in the margins. I can do all of this individually or collaboratively with others.

Best Web 2.0 Applications for Elementary (Langwitches) - 0 views

  •  
    Thanks to an amazing list of "The Best Web 2.0 Applications for Education-2007" from Larry Ferlazzo's Website, I decided to create my own list of the applications that have been the most useful or promising in the Elementary School scene. Maybe I even make a meme out of it to encourage other elementary school techies to create their own lists and publish them on their blog. The list does not have to be in any particular order. Great if you write a short sentence about what the tool does.

Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers and Teacher-Librarians (Stephen's Lighthouse) - 0 views

  •  
    This wiki was created for school library media specialists by Dr. Donna Baumbach and Dr. Judy Lee, University of Central Florida. The purpose is to provide information about some of the new web-based tools (Web 2.0) and how they can be used and are being used by school library media specialists and their students and teachers. Much of the information--including identifying a need for this kind of information--is the result of a survey conducted in 2008 of over 600 school library media specialists about their knowledge and use of web-based tools in library media programs.
