Del.icio.us is one of my favourite, and most used, Web 2.0 tools. I can’t emphasize enough how much I value the ability to save and access websites of note from any computer workstation. I also love the fact that I can see what others in my network are saving and tagging with a few simple clicks. I am quite sure that educators who don’t use social bookmarking have no clue what they’re missing. Here’s what my Del.icio.us bookmarks look like visually thanks to Wordle:
I borrowed the idea (from a virtual colleague) to tag links found on Twitter as ‘fromtwitter’ and it’s obvious from this image what a huge impact Twitter has had on my learning in just under one year!
If you’d like to see what links I’ve been bookmarking, or to add me to your network, my del.icio.us account name is emisle. Welcome to my personal learning network!
