Edublog Challenge #7 was to Use Diigo as part of your PLN. I had heard about Diigo during the TCEA-Technology Conference in Austin, TX and from several blog posts but had not used it. So I created a Diigo account – and yes it did take two days to get my account activation email – so be patient! I started by connecting my twitter account to Diigo so that my favorite tweets will automatically post to Diigo – WOW – that’s a great start to bookmarking. Then I joined several groups : ebchallenge, Classroom 2.o, EdTech, and Google in Education. I thought that this would give me a good start. I will apply for my Diigo Education Upgrade so I can add student accounts. I’m looking forward to using Diigo with my students for research and annotations!
