Community bookmarks

Below you’ll find an aggregation of the latest links from the ECAWA community for our social bookmarking experiment.

To contribute to this list you’ll need to sign up for a del.icio.us account (this was the unanimous preference in our poll you can see opposite).

To take part, when bookmarking a website complete these two steps: make the title of your bookmark descriptive and tag the website with ‘ECAWA’ and the learning area using our ECAWA ‘folksonomy‘ into the tag field.

Never used social bookmarking before?  Give it a try and see if you enjoy the benefits other educators have observed.  It takes 10 minutes to set-up.  These tutorials/how-to’s will help get you started:

  1. Video intro to social bookmarking
  2. A easy to follow step-by-step on how to use del.icio.us social bookmarks. (Thank you Sue Waters)
  3. Now you are ready try the simple sign-up via this 1 – 2 – 3 (please use your real name).

Please feel free to ask questions or leave suggestions in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

Start with pasting our tag folksonomy:

To start contributing your favourite websites to the rest of the community tag this very ECAWA website using deli.cio.us bookmarks and copy and paste this list of tags into the “tag” field:

ECAWA arts english science SandE TandE languages HealthPe AITcos CompSciencecos accounting arttee biology chemistry economics geography englishlittee historytee humanbiology indonesian japanese teemath music physics primary secondary tafe research

Why does this matter? Because next time you only have to type in the first couple of letters of a tag and any tags you have used previously will pop up to make tagging faster and easier.

Based on the Curriculum Framework this folksonomy will be used to categorise the internet links educators come across please and will appear below.  After you have tagged the website appropriately (we are trusting that people will do so) it will appear in both the sidebar and on this page.

See below the latest links tagged with “ecawa” – tag=ecawa:
