The New Delicious

Today Richard Byrne posted about the new Delicious launch on his Free Technology for Teachers Blog. Delicious is a popular social bookmarking site. They've just relaunched with a new feature called Delicious Stacks. With the new stacks feature, you can group your content based on tags.  The video below gives an overview of the new Delicious Stacks feature.  

This new feature has many possible classroom uses.  You and your students can create groups of websites based on specific math topics.  For example, you could create a stack of websites that pertain to adding fractions.  Or, you could have your students search the web for sites, videos, and images that relate to adding fractions.  Then have students create a Stack of the multimedia they collected and share it with classmates.   If your students create their own videos, images or other online projects, they can tag their work and save on Delicious.  This could serve as a digital portfolio.  This would allow students to easily share their work with classmates, parents, etc.

If you haven't already began to use Social Bookmarking sites like Delicious, you should really consider using one.  They make it so easy to save and share content. 

A couple of other excellent bookmarking options are:
