Diigo Education Pioneer – Diigo Educator’s Accounts

My account was just approved and I am now a Diigo Educator Pioneer!

If you’re interested in a Diigo Education account (which is free) check out the link here. With a Diigo Educator account, you can:

  • 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.

    I like the fact that Diigo offers educator accounts – definitely a plus over Evernote. It’s nice to see that you can create student accounts without having to add student email addresses. One less data protection headache to worry about!

      Yes, it is a plus. However, Evernote does some things that Diigo doesn’t. On an individual level they both have their ups and downs.
