My account was just approved and I am now a Diigo Educator Pioneer!
- You can create student accounts for an entire class with just a few clicks (and student email addresses are optional for account creation)
- Students of the same class are automatically set up as a Diigo group so they can start using all the benefits that a Diigo group provides, such as group bookmarks and annotations, and group forums.
- Privacy settings of student accounts are pre-set so that only teachers and classmates can communicate with them.
- Ads presented to student account users are limited to education-related sponsors.
It’s a great free tool to help students organize their research and collaborate with their classmates. You can see how I used Diigo in one of my lesson plans for a summer enrichment course on Ed Tech.
