Tagging Bookmarks with del.icio.us for Educators

Have you ever used del.icio.us?

It is a great tool to share bookmarks with others. When you add a bookmark, you add tags that are related to the link.

How can educators and students use this?

There are many possibilities, and I am interested in exploring this more.Educators can tag and share their favorite educational websites and websites used to plan lessons. Educators can also organize their bookmarks better for courses or subjects they teach by using tags. Students can tag bookmarks they use for assignments. Students working on group projects can share bookmarks with each other.

Finding bookmarks tagged by others

By adding tags to your bookmarks, it helps others find bookmarks you use. For example, you are looking for bookmarks related to math that are tagged with math.

How do you find these bookmarks?

http://del.icio.us/tag/tagname goes here

Example: http://del.icio.us/tag/math

What if you wanted to find a bookmark that uses both a math tag and education tag?

http://del.icio.us/tag/math+education

http://del.icio.us/tag/tagname goes here + tagname goes here

Education related tags

Listed below are education related tags that might have resources to help you. I am sure there are more tags, but this is a start.

This is a fabulous post.

I am a Masters of Library Science student, doing my final project for my MLS degree on Del.icio.us for Teachers. My project will be to find, evaluate, and then tag a collection of websites for some Junior High English teachers.

Right now, I am collecting information on teachers currently using del.icio.us. Why they are using it, how they are using it, what benefits they get from del.icio.us.

You have said some great things there in this post. I hope I can mention them in my report.
If you have anything else that might be useful project, please comment here or email me! Thanks!

There is also an RSS or XML feed.
Format is http://del.icio.us/rss/yourtaghere

Pop that into your reader and you will get updates as new sites are tagged.

Emily,
This valuable information will help me get much better at tags. And I delighted that I found your blog.

I have been working to learn how to use tags more efficiently because I am trying to track writing in math class, using photos in math class and other specific things.
