Diigo It!

Today's Learning Target:  

  • I can research a variety of non-print textual information and media to cite strong and thorough evidence relating to my designated topic area to support analysis of what the textual material says explicitly. (CCR - 11.RIT.1)
Today' Activities/Updates:
  • Walk the Wiki quiz will be tomorrow.  Continue to familiarize yourself with all aspects of the Flat Classroom Project 11-3 Wiki, as you will also begin editing and adding information to your respective team page tomorrow. 
  • Today is all about research and finding information about your specific Topic (the number) and Subtopic (the letter) and bookmarking to the Diigo Flat Classroom Group.
    • Use key words about your topic and subtopic to search the internet for current information.
    • You may find useful internet search tips here.
    • When you find an article, image, etc. that is beneficial to explaining your topic/subtopic, use your Diigo toolbar in FireFox to bookmark it, using the appropriate tags.
  • Steps for bookmarking:
    • Click "bookmark" in your toolbar and you will see this
    • Add a 1-2 sentence description of the article or website you are bookmarking in the description box.
    • For tags, be sure to enter mcahs-diigo so that I may find it as your project Diigo assignment
    • You will need to add additional tags based on your specific Topic and Subtopic.  The tags for each can be found here - the Tagging Standards for the project.
    • Under "More Options" click on "Share to Group"
    • Click blue arrow drop-down and select "Flat Classroom Project"
    • Click "Save"
  • You need to bookmark a minimum of five sources today.
  • To be safe (in case you haven't tagged correctly) when you are finished with the assignment, email me a link to your Diigo profile and I will be able to see your individual bookmarks in once place.  
  • In other words, if you go to your name at the top of the page and click your user name, then go to your profile like this
