Diigo provides my 8th grade students with a viable means to assemble a collection of websites on their research topics.

My Take

Setting up classes (into groups) does take time, but it results in much better management of the students and the resources they collect.

How I Use It

In order to have students use Diigo on more than a superficial level, I have incorporated website evaluation (using the Empire State Information Fluency Curriculum) into the process of them assembling their bookmark lists. This provides them with valuable practice in selecting and evaluating websites for use in their research projects.
