I’m a big fan of Diigo as well.  With the button right on my tool bar I can save everything of interest and share with groups of teachers and/or students.

I also use Diigo but also have a very messy library of tags and outliners. Collaboration and Groups make for easy sharing and the edu allows teachers to manage accounts for students. I also like the Diigo Web Collector extension for Chrome for annotations and screenshots.

Ah.. yes  EduClipper.. 

good choice

 

I had not heard of Participate, Bonnie

has anyone else used it

if so.. what do you like about it?

Another  reasons I like Diigo is collaboration through Groups. but the free version has now limited the number of groups you can start

Will look at 

as a possible solution

 

but gotta love the millions of recommendations that exist currently through a Diigo search

(still miss  my Delicious network)

I second Lucie's endorsement of Diigo. 

 

You might also explore EduClipper (Adam Bellow's work, Pinterest-like with visuals) or Participate Learning, which allows for collaborative contributions to a collection.

My favorite curation tool is DIIGO.

I have the Diigo IT button installed on my mobile device and on my browsers so whenever I find a great link I  quickly add it to my Diigo

 

I also have it set up so that anything I favorite on Twitter gets added automatically

 

If you have not looked at Diigo RECENTLY.. you might have missed the great new feature called OUTLINER  which allows you to not only ADD a bookmark to your Diigo, but to also add it to a specific "OUTLINE"  which is a  page with collection of links that you can easily EDIT  to make more user friendly.

 

For example here is an OUTLINER  (or page)   of links that have Laser and Vinyl tools

 

If I stumble upon new one - I just add it to my Diigo and also chose OUTLINER If I think its worth adding to the page.

 

 

For quick collections I   just search tags in My Diigo library. use a combination of tags  to generate a link that has ALL links related to that combination of tags.  For example  here is my list for eportfolio + examples  

 

The problem with that is that I'm a messy housekeeper so with this method someone can  go back and look at my other Diigo files you will notice that I'm a messy Diigo housekeeper.  Most librarians I know who use Diigo are pristine housekeepers of tags.

 

Unfortunately in the age of Pinterest.. I find that lots of folks like more visual look than Diigo offers. But it does the job well for me.   Another advantage is the DIIGO EDUCATION feature allows you to manage a classroom of students using Diigo.

 

Re more visual approaches:

 

I've seen some pretty great Symbaloo's out there.  I'm thinking Flipboard would be another visual approach.  I was a big Delicious fan, but when they temporarily disappeared I went to Diigo and didn't go back, but I think the new delicious is more visual in its new iteration.

Hi all,

So, I have been a pinterest fan for several years and didn't realize they had begun forcing people to signup or login when exploring someone's board, because I used to use boards as easy ways to share visual info with students and community. Now, however, I post a link to my board and it won't let students see the pins on it unless they sign up or log in, neither of which I want them to do.

 

I tried TamperMonkey extension and it didn't work in chrome on my mac - the kids are mostly on chromebooks, though.

 

My question is: do you have an easy work around, or a good alternative to pinterest that I should be using...I'm pretty annoyed, as I made a board of many coding links for them to come up with a plan for their own coding challenge that will last longer than the hour of code - and this morning they couldn't get to the links!

 

I have another section this afternoon, I guess I will just paste the links into an announcement on classroom and do it that way.
