Social Bookmarking: Your Favorites Really Want to be Free

Mike Taylor

Raise your hand if you’ve ever experienced any of these things: A computer crash wiped out all of the favorites from your web browser. You wanted to access a bookmark on your work computer from home (Or vice versa). You couldn’t find a bookmark you know you saved because there are too many or you didn’t remember which folder you put it in. Social bookmarking can solve all of those problems and bring you additional benefits you probably haven’t even thought of.

The changing Web

Learning with 'e's

The web is constantly changing. Social media - often referred to as Web 2.0 , or the participatory Web - is shaping up to be one of the most important tool sets available to support the promotion of change in education. Almost everyone, it seems, is using some element of social media in the planning, development, delivery, management or evaluation of teaching and learning. Essentially, Web 2.0 The Web is constantly changing, but it is also a change agent.

The survival of higher education (2): Changing times

Learning with 'e's

My two keynotes were conceived, written and presented over a decade ago in 2000, at a time when the Web was still in its infancy. I was certainly speaking for a time before the advent of what is now referred to as Web 2.0 or the ‘social web’. As my starting point I want to examine the phenomenon that is Web 2.0 and provide some examples of current pedagogical practice using the Social Web. The Changing Web (2.0) So what exactly is Web 2.0 ?

I'm thinking about the Web 2.0 Tom Wambeke's (KATHO, Belgium) session entitled 'Educational Blogging: in search of a general taxonomy', concluded that folksonomies were less hierarchical and more appropriate measures of blogs. Deborah Everhart (Georgetown University, USA) followed, with a session on social bookmarking, using Blackboard MLE tools.

If I have the time to go exploring through multiple links and see the interrelations between key words, I might go to del.icio.us. However, if I want to set up a way to store and share links on a particular topic, I will use del.icio.us Interesting, Bill points to a search on Google for "Web 2.0" I completely agree with Bill's assessment, del.icio.us

The problem was that our courses were neither pure soft skills (where technology rarely rears its ugly head) nor IT training (where good design in presentations, printed documents or web content never gets a mention). And, of course, this principle is massively extended online as users collaborate to create folksonomies to sort the millions of items to be found in flickr, del.icio.us, YouTube and endless other sites.
