So many projects . . . so little time!

Week 6, Thing #13

Yeah! Something I think I will use effectively. Social bookmarking is a handy tool for everyone. At my school level it is a great way for students and staff to have access to bookmarks wherever they are and whenever they need them. So often teachers go from classroom to lab and have to recreate their favorites for students to use. Del.icio.us is the answer to that problem.

Personally, I have already been using it. I use several different computers (at my desk, in the lab, my laptop, my home PC and one at family's business) and have often searched for something I have bookmarked only to realize it wasn't saved on the particular computer I was on at the time. This feature has already saved me time.

Setting up an account was fairly simple and after rereading the directions (novel concept!) I found the icon on my tool bar and all was good.

I enjoyed peeking into other people's bookmarks and found some interesting and useful sites. Thanks for sharing this great time saver.

Glad you found del.i.cious to be so handy and such a time-saver.

Your desk looks just like mine. Mugs of pencils, photos to remind me of the real world, and paper everywhere. So little time indeed!

I can't believe how far you are in this process. I just started last week. Now I feel very behind.
I love the shot of your desk.

I am truly enjoying this process... and learning a lot in the process. I would encourage everyone to jump in and get your feet wet if you haven't already started. The beauty of this is that it is at your own speed.
