Keeping Your Students Organized with Online Bookmarking

Online bookmarking uses the cloud to save and curate bookmarks for later viewing. Both teachers and students have some awesome bookmarking productivity tools available to them. Personally, I’ve seen my own students’ organization and productivity skills improve by introducing the following bookmarking tools to them. I guarantee once you start using these tools you’ll never look back.

Keeping Your Students Organized with Online Bookmarking
  • John Cork says:
    Evernote is the most robust, feature rich bookmarking tools I've come across and is useful for ages 13+ due to its complexity. Students and teachers love Evernote as it makes it allows the user to access notes or saved information across devices. Students most commonly use the tool to collect research for projects, essays and long term projects. Teachers love it as it allows one to share assignments, resources, or reading materials.

    Pocket is one of my favorite bookmarking sites as my students gravitate toward it after a simple lesson and follow-up. One of the more powerful bookmarking tools Pocket has some great features to keep your digital world organized.  Put articles, videos or pretty much anything into your online Pocket.  Visit “My List” for all your bookmarked websites, Twitter, Flipboard, Pulse and Zite articles.

    Symbaloo will appeal to your visual learners with its attractive interface  Symbaloo helps students stay organized with visually appealing bookmarks.  Students and teachers can compile a list of their favorite websites and display them in one-single homepage.  Each bookmark displays as a colorful icon on a single webpage making it easy to find your bookmark.

    Scoop.it is another powerful web tool for curating digital content. Similar to Pinterest, Scoop.it allows you to create as many boards as you want and you can either share them with the public or make them private. It also has a handy bookmarklet to use for instant Scooping. I subscribe to other educators "Scoops" as well as a way of staying connected and finding innovative teaching ideas and practices.

    Diigo is another one of my favorite bookmarking sites and I love using the tool with my students..  After signing up please read through the directions and start bookmarking.  You have the ability to create a teacher and student accounts.  You then have the ability to tag, manage and share bookmarks with students. You’ll also enjoy the ability to mark pages to read later and take screenshots.
