Diigo is one great web tool you should be using!

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Diigo (http://www.diigo.com/)  is an awesome tool for bookmarking, but it goes beyond that!  That is like saying a Lamborghini is just transportation.  (If you have ridden in one of these things... I need to get to know you!)

This is a tool you should be using personally as well as with your students.  It allows you to bookmark websites, as well as highlight content on that site. It's a cloud based organization system.  They have great browser add-ins that add all of the functionality, as well as an iPad app (http://goo.gl/XCNz3).  (Make sure you try the Diigo Browser http://goo.gl/iOqAB, it is one of the best browsers for the iPad. Formally it was the iChromy browser for the iPad.)  You can even download the content for off-line browsing.

If you are a teacher, apply for an educator account: http://www.diigo.com/education

Many services are free, and they offer some premium features for a low cost.  Check it out... and add the Google Chrome extension here: http://goo.gl/RulSI  (Not using the Google Chrome web browser??? You should be!)
