Schedule of Lunch Time Tech Sessions

Please join me in the MS computer lab on Wednesday 10/19 for a lunch time session on Diigo, a social bookmarking tool which allows you to bookmark, annotate, and share websites. It’s a great collaboration tool. Read below for some general information.

How does it work?

  1. You first need to register and create a free account.  Once you have an account, install the Diigo tool to your internet browser of choice (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.)
  2. When you come across a website worth keeping or annotating, use the Diigo tool to save it to your Diigo account.
  3. All bookmarks are then saved to your Diigo account which lives in the cloud. These bookmarks can then be retrieved using any computer or internet enabled device.

How would I use Diigo?

  • Websites could be annotated and shared with students, teachers or anyone else!
  • Students can add bookmarks as they find quality resources and your class can build a resource library.
  • Share web resources across department or grade levels.
  • Find other Diigo educators around the world and “follow” them. You will have access to all of their bookmarks.

 

Stop by the MS Computer Lab on Wednesday, 10/19 to learn more and to get started! I will offer two sessions, feel free to eat lunch first or bring your lunch to the lab. The first session will begin at 11:40 and the second at 12:30.
