Q4 Bookmarking in the Cloud

3. Cloud Initiation


In Quests 1-3, you learned about Cloud computing and bookmarking resources using Diigo or Symbaloo so that you can easily access your favorite sites on any device. 

You will choose Diigo or Symbaloo to bookmark resources as you progress through the 21Things4Students Quests (for Quests/tutorials that show you how to use these, use Quest 2 or 3)



  1. Diigo Option

    1. Use the Diigo toolbar to highlight 2-3 pieces of relevant information from the Things you have completed.
    2. For each highlight, add a sticky-note summarizing the information you highlighted.
    3. Capture 2 or more relevant screenshots using the Diigo capture tool. Add text summarizing the content you captured.
  2. Symbaloo Option

    1. Create a webmix. Consider creating multiple webmixes and organizing them by topic (e.g. How-tos, Visual Organizers, Research, Photos, etc.).
    2. Bookmark 2-3 relevant resources (e.g. tutorials, web pages, tools, etc.) for each webmix.

Optional Assignment: Now you are ready to begin bookmarking your own interests using Diigo or Symbaloo. Do you have a school appropriate topic that you are passionate about and would like to share with your classmates? What websites and videos would you choose? Find at least six resources to add to Diigo or Symbaloo. (Below is an example webmix teaching Origami)


   3. Share the link to your bookmarks with your classmates.

Completing this Quest:

Continue to use Symbaloo/Diigo to bookmark important things/tools as you learn about other Things. Check with your teacher to see how you will share and submit your bookmarks.
