Diigo is a way to keep track of all the images and websites online that you like. You create a free account and “bookmark” sites that you like. Use tags to group the sites. You can follow other Diigo users and get notified when they add a site of interest. You can also join groups that share an interest with you (History teachers, biking, etc). Click to see a brief video about Diigo. Scroll down just a little to see the video.
Looking for new ways to annotate the text on the computer or iPad? Once Diigo.com is set up (a simple log in), students are able to add comments, highlight, circle text, and much more to any website. This website is loaded onto the favorites bar and when annotation is desired, simply click the diigo logo in the upper right and the page is automatically saved. This way students can save all of their research for one topic and keep it all in one place; diigo.com
All of the websites on the topic of my choice are saved to one place!
Students can highlight/circle key words and make their own comments.
Downside: Each student needs their own account (logging in and out may be a problem).
Uses: Great for research projects! English, Social Studies, Foreign Languages, and Science will love this website and/or app.
