teaching k-8

This is a test… A colleague suggested a “fix” to a long-term problem! Social bookmarks with Delicious and Diigo are easy to accumulate, but I hadn’t found a workable solution for sharing them forward. Now it is here.

I save and tag everything that is interesting. Then snag all the links and summaries into lists and copy the lists into blog posts. There is a Diigo tool that does something like this but the formatting wasn’t very good and was a lot of work to revise. This is easy and the results are ok.

This may become a regular thing.
