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?
