social bookmarking such as delicious and how it helps us teachers

Just wanted to share with the teaching community my experience with delicious

I totally agree!!
I, too, have a Delicious account for social bookmarking!! I swear by it!! In fact, every time I do a workshop or a training session, I always start with teaching the participants how to use Delicious.

I have my bookmarks tagged a variety of different ways!! I have tags that break down the multiple intelligences, learning styles, ELA, math, science, social studies, online, interactive, etc.... The list could go on for ever!!

When I create a bookmark, it has to be a site that REALLY catches my attention. I only tag the sites that I feel are going to be relevant to me, my students, or to fellow teachers. I don't bookmark sites that are ones that I might check into later.

If anyone is interested in viewing my bookmarks, please feel free to join my "Network". My username is: svirons1.

Hi Sally . Great to hear from you.Thats right. Are you using a twitter account as well? For inviting specific tweets on topics from interested like minded people?
No, I'd never thought of doing that!! How would I go about setting that up?? I'm not a big Twitter fan - never found much use in it.
Hey Sally ,
check out these two links:
The first shows how to set up a twitter account and the second shows a demo of how twitter has been used for more than just social networking .
I too love Delicious, but I'm a little less discriminating (I'm working on it though) because I often add sites I want to check out later or that I think may come in handy for one of my teachers later. I'm a librarian, so I try to collect as much information about potential tools as possible for use with my teachers.

I think that part of the reason I love Delicious so much is because it really saved me a few months ago. Prior to setting up my account, I had my favorites stored in my computer's browser. Then, right after I set up Delicious, our entire computer system at school was infected with a virus, and systems were crashing left and right. We all lost our computer bookmarks, but because I had Delicious, I could still access mine.
I love Diigo!
Same idea - all my bookmarks stored.
I like Diigo's list facility - also being able to annotate pages.
My Diigo bookmarks are sent automatically to Delicious so they are in both!
I started off using Delicious, and I loved how I was able to send many links to an online database and not rely on saving them all on my internet browser's toolbar. Two months ago, I was introduced to Diigo by a friend and I instantly fell in love with its highlighting and annotating abilities. ( I was reading through research articles, LOL)

Now I don't which to use primarily! How does one use both Delicious and Diigo? Is there a way to import Delicious links to Diigo, or vice versa??
