52. My” Delicious Bookmarks
53. Social Bookmarking Tips
Great for groups researching a topic together or an instructor that wants to share great websites they have found.
Others can subscribe to your bookmarks or individual tags and receive them whenever the publisher adds a new bookmark.
Create working bibliographies for projects by ensuring they share a common tag.
Build lists of resources with fellow students/ teachers (decide on common tags first).
Create a network with friends or fellow club members with whom you share an interest.
Spend a few minutes planning how you’ll tag so that your tags are consistent (remember – no spaces within tags!)
Plural vs singular
Teacher’s names / course names
Clean up your tags periodically using the delete and rename tag functions.
