Joshua Farber's comment, August 17, 2013 1:51 PM
Interesting. I often try to test rule-sets like this by running them past an anecdotal example - in this case, "how would student texting during class be managed by this poster's rules?" Which may expose a dilemma of application - because students texting during class can get an educator a black mark in an impromptu learning walk or unnanounced observation, and because it can tempt other students who cannot afford to be so distracted to think that texting would be a good idea for THEM, I'd define it as a "problem" - but cannot think of many students who would agree. The primary issue here, then: who defines what is a "problem for someone else"? If teacher and student cannot agree on that category, I see little use - and some distraction and danger - in such a set.

Social Bookmarking Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Social Bookmarking Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | All things e-learning, social media | Scoop.it

"Social bookmarking is a new concept that has seen the light with the emergence of bookmarking services like the ones I cited below.Semantically speaking, ' social bookmarking' is made up of the the term " social " which is related to society and general interactions between people, and the verb " to bookmark " (used here as a gerund ending in ing) which has to do with recording and/or saving content for both later use and quick access. Weaving the semantic reference of the two words results in social bookmarking as we know it today : a collaborative and collective saving and sharing of web content."
