As this course is still in its infancy, my preconceived notions of ICT have not all been challenged to this point. However, one which has been challenged by a blog post mentioned in the learning path (https://resourcelinkbce.wordpress.com/2011/07/19/12-reasons-teachers-should-use-diigo/) is my view of Diigo. I had literally no idea as to how Diigo could be useful, however this post has shown me one brilliant way of using Diigo, that is “Diigo provides a lists feature that allows you to share carefully selected bookmarked websites with your students”.
In my experience in lower years of high school some teachers put with assignment sheets a list of pre-approved websites to ensure that young students are accessing the correct information while their research skills are developing. The use of Diigo’s list feature could allow a greater level of differentiated instruction in that these lists could be graded in terms of difficulty. I personally would adopt this into my pedagogy. I also wonder whether use of Diigo could lead to more truly collaborative research across classes through Diigo’s annotation feature.
Live long and prosper.
