Introduction to Social Bookmarking

Do you struggle to keep track of all your favorite websites and other online resources? Have you ever lost your folder of Internet bookmarks from your Web browser or wished you could access them from ANY computer? Would you like to share the links to your favorite online resources with your colleagues or students? Social bookmarking is a technique of storing, classifying, sharing and searching links through the practice of folksonomic tagging using a cloud-based service. During this online session on 10/31/2012 I introduced several popular free social bookmarking tools (Diigo, CiteUlike, Pinterest) and explored practical applications for implementing social bookmarking activities in the classroom. | view slides

Social Bookmarking 2.0: Research, Share and Collaborate Using Diigo

Do you struggle to keep track of all your favorite Web sites and other online resources? Would you like to share the links to your favorite online resources with your colleagues or students? Using Diigo, you can both easily bookmark your favorite online resources in the cloud and annotate, share, and collaborate in new ways! I gave this hands-on session at Faculty Summer Institute 2010 introducing the Diigo collaborative research tool and explore several practical applications for implementing collaborative resource sharing in the classroom. Interactive online handout, resource links, video archive, and sandbox Diigo group are available.
