Moderator: Hi, Maggie!


Moderator: You there?


Moderator to Maggie Tsai: This is a private message


Moderator (Steve Hargadon) to Maggie Tsai, Steve Hargadon: This is a private message


David Donica: Hi Steve - I'm here and switching to my PC so I can use my mike


KarenJan: Hey, Deb! How is everything?


pixellite: I'm new as well


pixellite: Hello


Deb Barrows: Everything is great


Helen Otway: Morning all! 8:12am in Melbourne


lornacos: Hello Helen 5:16pm in Ontario


Lorraine: This screen seems fine to me...


pixellite: I'm good.


Grundy: It's fine here...


ScottElias: Having a tough time hearing Maggie.


Deb Barrows: KJ - I bet your mind is racing with ideas to use this with kids


KarenJan: everyone was talking about it on twitter today - excited to see this


KarenJan: @debbarrows - did you see my post on Jott?


Deb Barrows: Yes, I read that Brian was checking it out


Deb Barrows: @KJ no


ScottElias to Maggie Tsai, Steve Hargadon: Maggie's audio is VERY low.


ScottElias to Maggie Tsai, Steve Hargadon: A little better.


Lynn Jacobs: Still quiet


Lorraine to Maggie Tsai, Steve Hargadon: audio is popping slightly. Possibly move slightly back from microphone and speak slightly louder.


Lynn Jacobs: I can barely hear Maggie


ScottElias: still very low, though, compared to steve


KarenJan: steve, you sound great


KarenJan: Maggie- that's better


Gail: better!


Lynn Jacobs: better.


ScottElias: better - but she's up and down


WillyB: I can hear her pretty well.


ScottElias: @WillyB you must be special


Jen Dorman: I have been using Diigo w/my students. I "force" them to annotate their bookmarks to encourage content processing as they are researching.


ScottElias: I'm mainly interested to know how it's better/different than delicious


WillyB: @ScottElias Oh...definitely.


ScottElias: i can still barely, barely hear maggie - she's good for a while and then gets really quiet


Gail to Maggie Tsai, Steve Hargadon: Are bookmarks, tags, etc. transferable from computer to computer like delicious


Jen Dorman: @ScottElias It is certainly more robust than del.icio.us - the highlighting, sticky notes, share to groups, etc. make it superior


WillyB: @Jen do you find students excited about using it? In my experience students when forced to use a tool don't integrate it into their "online world"


KarenJan: how do the students like the sticky notes feature?


ScottElias: if i get the volume to where maggie is loud enough steve sounds like he's screaming at me


Jen Dorman: @WillyB My students think that bookmarking on Diigo is pretty cool - they actually try to use the word Diigo as often as possible


ScottElias: i like the annotations


KarenJan: @jen - how do you pronounce it?


ScottElias: i can see using this for doctoral research, too


Bud: @scottelias: Me, too.


Jen Dorman: @KarenJan dee-go


WillyB: @Jen What grade level?


Jen Dorman: @WillyB 9th grade


Helen Otway: that sounds useful


Jen Dorman: My students find that when they annotate and share their bookmarks with their research groups that they have a much more valuable pool of resources


KarenJan: @jen - have they shown you any additional things they taught themselves?


Bud: A question I'm sure many teachers will have - can you have accounts underneath accounts - so student accounts under a teacher/teachers - so that teachers can approve comments? Or remove "questionable" ones?


Bud: Also - how do you deal with those "questionable" or objectionable comments on sites?


NancyW: Thanks Bud - you took the words out of my mouth!


Jen Dorman: @KarenJan LOL - that's the way it usually is with tech . . . they have started their own groups for other classes/projects/etc.


KarenJan: @jen- so they have extended their learning and applied it to other areas? Very cool - now they have ownership!!


Deb Barrows: How do you delete an inline sticky note?


Jen Dorman: I created a class Diigo group and when my student groups post to it they have to tag with the word/phrase I assigned to each group (that way they are also learning to harness the power of tagging)


Jen Dorman: @KarenJan I actually have had a number of other teachers meet with me to explain Diigo to them b/c my students keep mentioning it in their classes


Joe: indeed, simplicity is a necessity


Ken Pruitt: only reason I started messing with it


KarenJan: @jen - the ripple effect in action again - congratulations to you!


Ken Pruitt: made it too easy


Jen Dorman: The new launch of Diigo has added some terrific features!


Rachel Murphy - Salt Lake: can you import from delicious?


Jen Dorman: Or, have your students start using it and they will find ALL the features


Jen Dorman: @Rachel Yes


Ken Pruitt: delicious not importing right now


Jen Dorman: @Rachel It also imports the tags you applied in del.icio.us


Ken Pruitt: but can get Diigo to recognize a delicious post


Jen Dorman: @Ken I know it says that, but when I tried two days ago it did import (even though their was a message to that effect)


Rachel Murphy - Salt Lake: where do I find that? I installed the toolbar....not finding it


Ken Pruitt: hmmm


bmuench: @Ken it worked for me today even though it said it wasn't


Bud: IT says import doesn't work - but it seems to. I just wish it was in reverse chronological order.


Jen Dorman: @Bud agreed


Ken Pruitt: I cannot, nor can I add my blog


Ken Pruitt:


Bud: Jen - is this the type of tool that helps kids to "stick together" after they leave your class? Can they still be resources for each other? Seems like they could be.


susan: I was able to post to my blog, twitter, import delicious --all last night


Jen Dorman: @Bud I think so - social bookmarking seems to be one of those easily transferred skills - one that students see an immediate value (academic and social)


Jen Dorman: @Bud I teach 9 week classes and my former students have continued to use Diigo after my class has concluded


bmuench: @susan howdo i post to twitter?


Ken Pruitt: no thoughts about ads yet huh?


Ken Pruitt: ah ha


KarenJan: thank you - this looks great but I have to leave


Maureen: Will there be any way to also integrate Google bookmarks?


Jen Dorman: the annotations, groups, lists, and communities really set it apart


susan: @bmuench I downloaded the diigo toolbar, and it's an option to "send"


mmkrill: @maureen I exported my google bookmarks to html and then imported them to browser favorites and then into Diigo.


Jen Dorman: @mmkrill Great tip!


bmuench: @susan thanks!


Maureen: @mmkrillI did that too, but want o keep on using google as well and not bookmarking twice


susan: How does diigo determine "favorite sites" I have three listed but I didn't designate them as "favorites"


Rachel Murphy - Salt Lake: I would be interested in hearing more about lists versus tags. I may have missed that part of the conversation. When would you use a list versus a tag?


Maureen: re respnsive- I got a reply within hours :0)


Durff: anyone else having trouble getting the chat window here to advance to the most current entry?


susan: hmmm, ok thanks


Moderator (Steve Hargadon) to Maggie Tsai, Steve Hargadon: Durff: if you're at the end of the list, it automatically goes forward. But if you go back, it doesn't bring you to the end until you want.


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): Durff: if you're at the end of the list, it automatically goes forward. But if you go back, it doesn't bring you to the end until you want.


Durff: tried that - no go


Durff: Murphy's Law


Moderator (Steve Hargadon): @durff: Don't know


susan: With lists you can create those neat web slides. I like that!


Jen Dorman: I just started a new list - to group related tags


Jen Dorman: Maggie - do you have an printable tutorials?


Maureen: yes


Jen Dorman: That works, thanks


Durff: i never read directions 0 i ask dorman


pixellite: I normally need a teacher

pixellite: i'll get on that


Jen Dorman: @Kathy what version of Explorer where you using - I think Diigo requires 6 or higher


Jen Dorman: Diigo wiki?


Maureen: Will you have a wiki to share teacher experiences?


Kathy Lawrence: Not sure about the version, may have been 6


Jen Dorman: @Maureen Maybe we can get a page on Eduwiki.us dedicated to Diigo?
