Just Delicious! ...make that, Del.icio.us, actually. This is another lovely little tool I have seen everywhere and heard of, without having a clue what exactly it was. While I was checking out the tutorial, I went ahead and created an account. This was remarkably easy, and all my bookmarks were imported in just moments. I wish I knew about this earlier! On several occasions I have been away from my own computer and unable to remember a bookmarked website. Usually, those I use at school (e-mail, grading centers, shared resources, HR, etc) do not come up in an online search. Now, I can get everything I need wherever I am! (Yay!)
I also love the idea of being able to share bookmarks and comments with others. This would be a great resource for students who are learning researching skills. They could share bookmarks on their topic of interest (or on just about anything else for that matter). Teachers could certainly use this as well. My colleagues and I share resources, including links, on a regular basis. This could allow teachers to comment on what they found useful, as well as what might be a waste of our precious time.
In a matter of a few short weeks I have added several colorful and helpful little icons to my toolbar.
