Bookmarking with Delicious. I can’t imagine doing my job without it. If you are new to Web 2.0 tools, this is the one you must try first. Delicious keeps all your “favorites” online so you can view them anywhere. Just having that should be enough but bookmarking is so much more.
Start by making an account. My user name is hchaves so go to www.delicious.com/hchaves to find my bookmarks. An important part of bookmarking is the use of tags. Tags help you put bookmarks into categories. I like to tag my bookmarks with elementary or secondary if they are for the classroom. Then I use subject tags. Since I’m passionate about digital citizenship, you can see that I frequently use that tag.
The social part of bookmarking involves having a network. You can easily see what they have been bookmarking and save any you like as well.
Next time you are looking for a good website on a topic, go to Delicious first, search websites already vetted by others.
