What Teachers Like About Diigo

  • Allows teachers to collect websites for a particular use and classroom theme and can be accessed or shared with a larger community of students or teachers. 
  • Consider using a school Diigo account to house bookmarked sites for the entire school and then they can be sorted and used by multiple teachers
  • Create notes and highlight information in the Diigo sites
  • Tag the sites-- and create your own personal database of web materials
  • Creates a shared collaborative community of resources available ANYWHERE not just at school. You can access them at home as well
  • If enough people are using it and sharing  it it can act as a community "reader" of information
  • It easily bypasses filters of most school districts

 

Teacher Tips For Using the Tool

  • Be thoughtful of your tags  -- in this case more is better
  • Consider how others would look for your information when entering tags, especially students
  • Create subgroups and folders to organize your information
