For maximum benefit, educators are highly encouraged to extend their knowledge by setting up a social bookmarking account. Delicious.com is a great place to begin. (Note, Delicious.com is now owned by Yahoo, and requires a Yahoo account to be created. This has changed from the original information shared in 2008).

 

Step one: Set up a del.icio.us account!

  Caution: del.icio.us may be blocked in some districts (because of it's social nature). If del.icio.us is not blocked at your school, consider

setting up a del.icio.us account for teachers and students at your school. Give the teachers a "common" login and password, and install the tags on their computers so the entire community can add to the resources. See this example from Todd Hall:  http://del.icio.us/Todd_Hall

 

What is del.icio.us?

Learn from CommonCraft's "Plain English" series:
