Use the Gmail Trick Create a legitimate gmail account at http://mail.google.com/. (e.g. email@example.com). http://firstname.lastname@example.org Then, you can use that base account to "trick" web applications that require e-mail address to create user accounts. The way it works is that you add a + and a student name/alias after the gmail user name (e.g. email@example.com, etc.) firstname.lastname@example.org For instructions visit: http://snipurl.com/googletricks http://snipurl.com/googletricks

By clicking button, the list transforms into a slideshow, bringing Web pages and user comments to life. All you and your reader need is just a web browser.
Student Account Security Settings Students added to a class group by the teacher automatically become friends to each other No one else (except their friends) is allowed to send a friend request or message to them essentially Diigo presets the privacy setting at http://www.diigo.com/profile/edit/other for these student accounts http://www.diigo.com/profile/edit/other Although each student account has a profile, the top portion (about me / info) won't be shown. The teacher can instruct students to mark everything private (only shareable by the group)
How Are Educators Using Diigo? Annotate curriculum documents and add stickies to show where tech integration is happening and could happen. That could be annotated for a group of curriculum writers. Annotate state education agency memos for your administrators. Among a team, share the implications of the ideas in the memo, the most important points, and so on. Create a slideshow of clickable web sites grabbed from your bookmarks. Publish your annotations/comments to your blogs or embed linkrolls and tagrolls onto a wiki or website.
