Love Diigo--it's my online memory, for myself, for my students, for my colleagues.  Innumerable times this past year I've been able to share resources, articles and the like with a colleague or a students quickly and easily.

I'm still working out my floating sticky notes use so that in the long term, I'll know what was Diigo-worthy about each link.

I teach a Best Practices Web 2.0 course and one of the modules deals with social bookmarking.  All students in the course join our diigo group and are encouraged to contribute sites to the group in addition to creating their own social bookmarking site. 

 

Feel free to join one or both of our Web 2.0 groups:

http://groups.diigo.com/group/web20-bp

http://groups.diigo.com/group/web-20-enhancing-education-through-te...

 

or follow my personal diigo bookmarks (game design and development, Web 2.0, etc.):

Using Diigo in it's most simple form, bookmarking only. I know it's got more to offer, need to find the time to explore it further. I look forward to sharing and learning together.

I can't imagine living without Diigo. Last week at an administrator's retreat I shared the resource with several principals. I can't wait to get them started so we can share common resources.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Diigo! I am with Phil on his comment...I too have become very addicted to Diigo! The first thing I do every morning is read the resources that were sent to me through the Diigo Groups that I belong too. This is a great way for me, as the teacher librarian, to learn and send out great new technologies and resources to our teachers and students.

I also have created several lists in my Diigo Library and love the fact that I don't have to keep these lists to myself. By sharing my Library and Lists with others, they too are learning and collaborating with me.

Our 7th graders are getting ready to use Diigo and I cannot wait to see what they think. They have been exposed to Diigo through the Van Meter Library VOICE Google Site, because I have placed the links to my Diigo Libraries on VOICE. I will let you all know how it goes! :)

I love diigo also. The organization is great and I am a member of several groups that I get a lot of good resources/info from. I just began using student diigo accounts with my Technology Academy students. So far so good...I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Simple Ways To Be A More Compassionate Teacher

The lack of social and emotional skills can lead to burnout. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to develop theseskills. No one taught us these skills when we were kids. We also didn’t know that they’re vital in our adultlife and they can be developed.Schools are just starting to understand how emotions can affect students’ way of learning and overall well-being. Thus, students who were lucky enough to have compassionate teachers growing up have been trainedto develop gratitude and compassion. These…See More
