Use Diigo to annotate and organize the web

Use Diigo to annotate and organize the web | academiPad | Scoop.it
If I could only use one web tool for the rest of my life, I would choose Diigo to highlight & annotate the web. This post tells you why Diigo is so amazing.
academiPad's insight:

Do you sometimes wonder how people were doing research in the pre-internet age? I do this quite often, and do you know what I am thinking right after? How the hell did I do research on the web before I knew about Diigo?!!

For those of you who haven't heard of the new(ish) startup Citelighter, take note: it's a pretty awesome tool. I've been playing around with it and chatted with founders of the company last week and am thoroughly impressed.

academiPad's insight:

The content curation (public and private) space is getting really crowded. I am no big fan of the very limited pinterest and prefer scoop.it. But Keep seems to be very worth checking out.

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Diigo for Professional Development

Diigo for Professional Development | academiPad | Scoop.it
The teachers that I work with often ask me, "Where do you find out about all these new tools and online resources?".   In addition to the use of Twitter, Diigo is at the top of my goto list for fin...
academiPad's insight:

I am a huge fan of diigo for years now, and I am surprise by how few people actually know and use it. Diigo is a social bookmarking tool, but way better than delicious (is that one still around?) and others because it also lets you annotate webpages!

 

I use diigo to highlight and tag webpages - kind of my own personal web archive. All my annotations and tags are set to private by default, because I don't feel exactly comfortable with other people knowing on such a detailed paragraph level what I am working on.

 

In practice, everything that I read online ends up being tagged and highlighted. And if I don't have time right now, I save it for reading it later.

 

There is an education license which gives you an upgraded version for still free.
