Wow, another week packed full of learning.
I loved the organization of this tool on a personal and professional level. I am often doing research or stumbling around the internet and find tons of ideas and resources. Bookmarking them is a pain and unrealistic. I have even been known to create a word document with all the links. I have even tried 'onenote' unsuccessfully. Diigo is great. However, there is one draw back. I am a very visual person, and the presentation is somewhat bothersome. I hate that there is no thumbnail image, or snapshot. I think it would help me find things, if there was an image too.
You can use this tool with your students too. One site, mentioned having a separate account as your student sharing account. It definitely makes sense to have a separate account, but I am not sure I would like the management of a separate account.
How did I not know about this. Not only do I plan on exploring the option of using this as a checkout calendar with my staff, but there are so many more applications. It would be a great way to have a 'family' calendar. My husband, I , and my three kids all have smart phones. What a great way to manage a crazy family schedule. Finally, I think I will encourage my husband to use this for his club lacrosse scheduling (share with parents and players).
Other Organizational Tools
What a great PLN our class is. I have some great ideas, I am excited to try.
SignUpGenius for conferences, why not?
Remind-easy to use! Could this be a tool for emergency contact during a crisis event?
Alarm Clock software for your computer. I love this tool it is free, and helps us remember to save and log off for the bell.
Here is a list of sites my class shared:
