Google Chrome is a great web-browser. I have book marked some of the most important sites which used to just sit in Gmail as suggested and put the rest in Diigo. It doees take time for me to navigate new applications but once I get there I fly!
Two days ago I struggled with Diigo, this morning I found myself scrolling through my emails and bookmarking favourite sites in Diigo! The next step is to put them in groups, but not until I complete my marking of my own students’ work.
Evernote is fantastic for someone like me who perennially copies and pastes articles; saves them in Word, never to find or use most of them again. Lots of applications for work and home here! Well I did mention in an earlier post that I wanted to become better organized. Now if these applications just sorted out wardrobes full of unworn clothes and shoes…….but I digress here.
Just demonstrated Evernote and Diigo to Kevin, the lovely Carer who takes my husband Peter to a film or golf on Thursdays. He has an i-phone and home computer and was going home to set these up on his devices. That’s when learning something new is exciting for me-the ability to share it with someone else.
My husband has Early Onset Dementia. Evernote now contains the relevant articles clipped from the web on the topic/ as well as copies of emails from Alzheimer’s Australia pertaining to my membership of the Early Onset Dementia Reference Group.
Next stop school. After I complete my marking I plan to use Diigo to bookmark relevant sites for teaching and learning.
I will set up an account for the Bayview Library for Evernote/Web Clipping and Diigo when I return to work next week. I will share this with Paul Byrne our Library Manager and our Davorka Box, our Library Technician.
Saved the extension article on Pocket using Web-clipper and intend to come back to this later on. Marking work for next week is a number one priority. The PLN Course work is impressive, however it has eaten into my time this week. Entirely my fault of course for not beginning the online work at the outset!
