My New Social Bookmarking Tool

eLearning Cyclops

I have been a big fan of social bookmarking and my preferred tool for social bookmarking has been Delicious. With the initial rumor that Yahoo will be discontinuing it and now the news they may be selling it ,  I imported my bookmarks to Diigo. This is great because I often share these tags on my blog, Twitter, e-mail and even in the classroom, so seeing them preserved was very important to me. So, if you are a Diigo user you can bookmark my posts using the icon in the right column. Cloud Social Media Misc. Cloud Computing

It has been a great source for getting help from my social network. I am also beginning to utilize LinkedIn Answer, though the usage is still low. Social Bookmarking – I had on my list the last time, however I hardly use visit it to view other people’s bookmarks. So social bookmarking is still on my list but the usage is different now.

Twitter for learning

Sticky Learning

Why wouldn't you use Twitter?! I've only been actively participating on Twitter for 4-5 months now. I'm also interested in how design thinking impacts upon learning and the use of visuals to communicate ideas and knowledge.  In the few months that I've been active on Twitter I have been exposed to more ideas from more sources than in whole years previously. Twitter keeps me current. I can go to university and complete a course, but after a VERY short while that knowledge is dated. Twitter is free, always available and keeps you up to date with the very latest ideas.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

Sharing knowledge, using any number of media that fit our personal needs, work styles, and professional social networks. Much of this happens on social streams on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or any number of other media where we connect with our PLNs, so it’s important to develop effective social media practices. So too are our personal learning networks. 1994).
