Perhaps one of the more important skills to learn as part of 21st century digital literacy is that of digital curation. One of the tools that will help you curate content is called Diigo. This quest will help you learn how to use Diigo to curate web links to support your work, instruction, and learning. This will also put you in a better position to help others by sharing what you have learned and curated.
Diigo is a social bookmarking tool, which allows you to collect and add meaning to web links that you find important. At the time of this post, I have collected and organized 15,354 different links. With Diigo, you can curate, annotate, assign tags, and even highlight web pages that you find.
To complete this quest, I am asking you to do the following:
- Create a Diigo account. NOTE: You should NOT have to pay for an account.
- Add the Diigo tool to your web browser.
- Curate a minimum of 10 items and organize them with tags. (video)
- Share that tag with me through this form. Simply click on the tag and copy the url from your web browser address bar.
The quest is open from 2-11 September.
