I like that these will be seachable so that they can be shared. I'm excited to test drive this. I agree that it may be better than social bookmarking, because even a well-organized diggo tag will have things off topic or for some audiences because we all have different ideas of the meaning of a word used for tagging.

Goal 10: Spread Your Knowledge (15+ Tools to Bookmark, Aggregate, Curate) : Teacher Reboot Camp | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Teach your students to use online bookmarking, curation, and aggregation tools to gather and organize their knowledge. Develop a community for sharing resources in your teaching environment. You can do this by having a newsletter, a collective blog, a wiki, Google site, Facebook group or other landing place for the information you gather. You can even create a hashtag on Twitter where you encourage your colleagues and/or students to use to share their knowledge. Establishing a community for learning helps support and encourage continuous learning.
