Hi everybody, I noticed there's been a bit of discussion about different online bookmarking tools. I know that's not the best term, but until someone suggests a better one, I'm going with it. Anyway, by 'online bookmarking tools', I mean sites like Delicious, XMarks, Diigo and Read it Later. All of these sites allow the user to record useful websites, adding tags and keywords of their own choice, and then share these sites to other users. I was curious about how other people are using these in lessons to make interesting learner experiences for students. I've heard some colleagues have used these in webquests as well. So, please share your experiences and ideas! I've got a list below of some of the most common ones. Diigo - http://www.diigo.com/ XMarks (Old FoxMarks) - http://www.xmarks.com/ Delicious - http://delicious.com/ Read it Later - http://readitlaterlist.com/
