three great Diigo video tutorials:
Organize Your Research with Diigo
Online Collaboration Using Diigo Groups
Diigo for Educators
Once you go Diigo, you’ll never go back.
Like other bookmarking sites, Diigo gives you a place to store and organize bookmarks for anything you’re interested in online — think Pinterest with more words and fewer pictures.
maybe you want your students to begin a research project. They can work under your supervision in Diigo groups of their own, collecting resources, determining which ones are useful and which are not, practicing appropriate commenting, learning how to tag items for archiving — in other words, participating in the exchange of information and critical thinking that adult professionals do.
This is an older post, but a great description of how Diigo can be used.
Comprehensive post on curation, includes Rheingold interview, June 2014.
From the wonderful Kathy Schrock
Another great Edublogs PLN post, this time with a focus on incorporating Diigo into your PLN.
Pay particular attention to the section, "Organizing Diigo using Tags and Lists," as tagging will be one of the Diigo requirements over the next few weeks. Lists are being phased out and replaced by 'outliners' that work much the same way, except that outliners have more organization power!
"Content Curation Through the SAMR Lens" by one of my favorite edtech PD resources, Susan Oxnevad. March 2014
content curation is an important survival skill for teachers and students today.
