Good collection of resources about using Diigo - check links on left to easy-to-read overviews, classroom ideas (lesson plans, training videos), and other resources. Start with Diigo 101 and Social Bookmarking and Diigo. From the About link, you see that this website (Google site) was created by a group of graduate students for a course, but they appear to have done a great job!

Great page from Kathy Schrock with resources about Dr. Ruben Puentedura's SAMR model of technology integration - explains hope that teachers will move beyond Substitution to Augmentation to Modification to Redefinition - not just using technology as a substitute for the usual ways of doing things, but to redefining teaching and learning tasks in ways not previously possible.
