Oh, well then I think it has to be by group if you want them subscribing....

What I"m trying to accomplish is not having to sort out who gets what information that *I* have to send out (I have to manage a huge group of teachers and grade levels), and not have to send out mass e-mails of stuff that does not pertain to a lot of people. If people subscribe to a specific topic of interest, they only get those updates. And, there is a place to discuss the link/content or an article. If there is a way to sort out who gets e-mail based on tags, I don't know about it. Enlighten me if anyone knows about it, please.

Rather than create groups per content area, you should create one group and use predefined tags. So everyone shares to CESU-group. Then if have tags like: 3-4, 5-6, math, resource, ... When someone finds a link they just tag it appropriately and share with CESU-group. The trick will be to make sure people use the same spelling of tags because 3-4 and 3 - 4 are two different tags.

Diigo Groups looks very doable, based on my experience subscribing to and participating in larger groups. It is quick and easy for teachers to just click to bookmark, annotate/describe, and choose the group to share with. What I find particularly useful is the commenting feature that is also built in. I'm thinking of setting up Diigo Groups categorized by curriculum committee content area. That part is easy, but then gets muddier as we talk about resources common to everyone K - 4, or everyone K - 8, general resources applicable to anyone, and so on. I know that the more organized it is and the less e-mail teachers receive with updates, the happier they will be. And, if people find it user-friendly, they will continue to use it. Is anyone doing this? Has anyone tried Diigo for this type of work? If so, any hints for organization would be helpful! Failures or pitfalls would be appreciated as well. If you have found a different tool that is easy and useful for this type of work (wikis did not work for us), please share that as well! Any information would be helpful. Thanks!
