Lots of Great Links from ISTE 2010

The ISTE 2010 conference just wrapped-up a couple of hours ago. I had a great time reconnecting with folks that I met last year, meeting new people, and learning lots of great stuff about technology and education. If you weren't able to attend, but want to discover some of the great websites that were shared throughout the conference, head on over to the ISTE 2010 Diigo group. Currently, there are 115 links on the list that were shared during the conference. I went through the list and found about one dozen sites that were new to me.

Applications for Education
Diigo is a great social bookmarking service for educators. Educators (or anyone else) can create private and or public groups for sharing the links they find with their colleagues. What's really nice about Diigo is that not only can you share links with your group, you can also comment on the links and explain why you bookmarked it and how it might be helpful to educators.

Here's a nice Diigo video tutorial created by Google Certified Teacher Lisa Thumann.
