Have you heard of Diigo?
I recently saw a post about a teacher using diigo to manage bookmarks and to post to her blog. I was intrigued since I find it so difficult to manage blog post during the school year. Hopefully that will be better next year when I am FINALLY finished with grad school! I also needed a good bookmarking tool.
Diigo has free and paid accounts. They also offer a free upgrade to educators. I love it when that happens! So far, I've only signed up for the free account. I was easily able to add a toolbar to the firefox browser. It lets me bookmark, highlight, capture, read later and more all while browsing the internet.
I'm excited to use this new tool for blogging and for organizing teaching ideas.
Here's a little preview of what it can easily do. I bookmarked some free things I found this morning and added tags. The tags will help you organize your content. I was then able to specify the bookmarks I wanted to share on my blog by entering a tag and clicking a button to generate the html code for my blog. Easy! :)
Only 2 more days in October and I am counting them down. The kids are way too excited to focus much. :) Enjoy this list of freebie I compiled for you today!
