Student & Teacher Uses

Students can use the website in order to add their favorite or useful sites.  This allows students to easily access them from home, school, or any other location without having to be on the same computer.  It also provides for easy organization.


Teachers can share their sites and URLs with their students as well as other teachers or faculty.  It makes for an easy way of sharing great sites, ideas, various lesson ideas, or any other fun or useful sites they may want to check out themselves.  This would be a great way for teachers to help students prepare for research papers or other research projects by providing and organizing various sites on their classroom Delicious account.  You can create a specific tag for the classroom so they can easily locate any information the students may need for future lessons.  For example, we could add the tag "ECT 313" to any articles or sites related to our class so when students search the tag all the links related will appear.
