This is what the Diigo ‘post to blog’ function in Diigo tools looks like. I created a folder a few weeks ago and have been bookmarking links each week. This function could be used in the classroom by the teacher and by students. Students can document their research by annotating and bookmarking links and the teacher can share folders with instructions for tasks and avoid having to explain the same thing over and over again. I’m pretty sure you would be able to share a link to the home page of a wiki as well. Below is weeks 1 to 6:

Key messages for using ICTs in the classroom.
- Schools spent £487 million on ICT equipment and services in 2009-2010. But this investment has not yet resulted in radical improvements to learning experiences or attainment.
- No technology has an impact on learning on its own right; impact depends on how it is used.
- Rather than categorising innovations by the type of technology used (eg, do games help learning?), it’s more useful to think about the types of learning activities we know to be effective, such as practising key skills, and exploring how tech can support these activities.
- We identify eight learning themes that show significant promise of impact when combined with digital technology
