Diigo

Description: 

Diigo is a tool that allows users a safe place to search for, bookmark, organize, annotate, collaborate on and share online resources.

What We Like: 
  • Customization options
  • Helps students learn key Web skills such as curating and sharing online content
  • Gives teachers a way to share relevant, pre-screened website content
  • Ability to add notes to reinforce lessons in the text
Limitations: 
  • Requires login
  • Must stay within the browser tab to use it
  • Advanced searches can turn up questionable content
  • Not much guidance on research practices or identifying credible sources
Classroom Application: 
Use as a classroom 'home page' to share links with students easily (they don't have to type them in)
