Tool #6

Diigo






The children can use Diigo to easily access websites while doing research on birds, animals, landmarks, landforms, etc.This year my students used Diigo at home and in the classroom to access websites for practicing math concepts. They also were able to listen to books using the link to the website for Tumblebooks.
Wallwisher can be used for children to communicate their thoughts about any topic/unit covered in class.They can post comments about what they have learned. They will learn from reading other classmates comments.I could use this as a form of assessment at the end of a unit.
I think children will love to communicate through these cool tools. Anytime they can use technology to show their learning, they get excited. They will enjoy talking back and forth with friends.
