A Quick Guide to Using Diigo with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Quick Guide to Using Diigo with Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Cool Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

February 27, 2014
Social bookmarking is an online phenomenon that has seen the light in the last few years particularly with the outburst of web 2.0 technologies or what author Will Richardson calls the read/write web. To put it simply, a social bookmarking service is a web tool that allows you to not only bookmark web documents (as traditional bookmarking did) but also to annotate, edit, tag and share them with others. Social bookmarking can also be a collaborative endeavour in which a group of users share links with the same tags.
