Social Bookmarking – Diigo

Web Tools for Learners

Social bookmarking is one of the most useful aspects of the web.

Social bookmarking can solve all of those problems and bring you additional benefits you probably haven’t even thought of. Your first question may be, “What the heck is social bookmarking?”.

Learning with 'e's

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.

Clive on Learning

Learning with e's

Now we have the social web, there are more ways than ever to make your content available to a vast audience. Answer - you organise it by 'tagging' it. Tagging content is a bit of an art.
