Del.icio.us is Deliciuos
Del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site that allows users to bookmark and tag all of their favorite and most viewed sites on the web. It's like having your personal laptop even when you are on the road or at work using a different computer. My personal CPU has bookmarks at the top of the browser which makes navigation quicker and easier. However, when I am not home Del.icio.us makes anyone's computer feel like my own. The tagging feature allows you to organize your sites into categories such as education, email (if you have multiple emails), sports, or web 2.0. One way it could it be beneficial in the classroom is to have students bookmark research sites that pertain to a project they may be doing, or a blog they might following. The site also allows students to follow other users' bookmarks if they are of a common theme; this can save time when doing research and help students get a quicker and more efficient start. Del.icio.us is truly delicious.
