del.icio.us in your i-life Create working bibliographies for projects by ensuring they share a common tag. Build lists of resources with fellow students/ teachers(decide on common tags first). Create a network with friends or fellow club members with whom you share an interest. Subscribe to tags of favorite topics. Add del.icio.us to your Facebook profile Add a linkroll or tag cloud to your personal blog or one you’ve made for a club.
Planning & managing Decide whether you’ll create one account or two – a personal one and one for school. Spend a few minutes planning how you’ll tag so that your tags are consistent (remember – no spaces within tags!) Plural vs singular Teacher’s names / course names Clean up your tags periodically using the delete and rename tag functions
