It's just too much. Did you know that there are over 15 billion web pages? To make sense of it all, we need to pluck out the best pages and save them for later. We have choices. We could bookmark or add to favorites in our web browser. Nah, it quickly becomes messy. There's a new way that doesn't use a browser. We'll focus on three things: How to get started with bookmarking, how bookmarks are organized by tags, and why this kind of bookmarking is social. First, go to delicious.com to sign up for a free account. Consider this example, you are a teacher who often uses the web to find math lessons for 8th graders. Here's what happens when you tag a site: a new window opens and asks for more information. When you save a page like this, two things happen. Let's fast forward two months to make our second point: Why tags are so important. To find all your sites about algebra, you click the algebra tag, and voila, one hundred becomes three. Think about your fellow teachers.

Qu’est-ce que le bookmarking social ? Afin d'expliquer le phénomène du bookmarking social, CommonCraft diffuse une video présentant le service Del.icio.us. La conception de ce didactitiel est trés originale ! Présenter l'utilisation des NTIC gràce à des "bouts de papier" permet de se concentrer sur l'essentiel tout en mettant de coté la technique. Une idée à retenir. Publication Date: 2007-09-23 Tag: NTIC services web2.0 video On 2007-09-23, Jérôme: Quel outil utilises-tu pour faire du social bookmarking ? Concernant le didactitiel, sa conception est en effet assez original. On 2007-09-23, Olivier: A l'heure actuelle, je ne partage pas mes favories. Pour stocker mes favories et pouvoir y accéder depuis n'importe quel poste, j'utilise Netvibes. On 2007-09-24, Jérôme: Faudrai que je creuse un jour pour trouver l'outil idéal ;) Je ne connaissais pas le widget netvibes pour insérer une page web. On 2007-09-25, Olivier: Sur Netvibes, j'utilise le widget Webnote. On 2007-10-21, GuiM.fr: Comment ca marche le social bookmarking...

Collaborize Classroom | Online Education Technology for Teachers and Students Social bookmarking avec SemanticScuttle : alternative libre à Delicious « Bafouillages [geek] Après l' information selon laquelle le fameux site de social bookmarking Delicious allait être fermé par Yahoo, information finalement démentie (Delicious sera revendu), j'ai recherché quel outil libre , installable et gérable par moi-même, pouvait avoir assez de qualité pour le remplacer dignement. Comme le rappelait Framasoft sur Twitter , les données ne sont jamais mieux que chez soi et, en ce sens, la solution de repli vers Diigo , largement plébiscité sur le même Twitter, n'aurait absolument rien changé à l'un des problèmes de fond : rester tributaire d'une société privée dont on ne peut être certain du devenir. Ma recherche était guidée par deux exigences précises : l'outil devait pouvoir être utilisé via une extension ou, en tout cas, un raccourci permettant de bookmarker rapidement et aisément ses pages des flux RSS devaient être générés par tag , et non pas uniquement pour le compte utilisateur tout entier.
