Social Bookmarking, Part 5: More Things to Do (Education & Teaching)
What about in a course? Can you use social bookmarking with students in classes? Of course. Just as with research assistants, ask the students to make their own account. Make sure they are using the same social bookmarking system that you are using, since you can't tag links for someone else's attention if they are on a different system.
Create a course account. Tag links to match the topics in the syllabus.
Use your social bookmarking tool to manage the class assignments and readings.
Bookmark the readings, and tag those for the next class session as 2do.
Bookmark web pages for the class to review or analyse, put brief instructions in the comment section.
Give students an assignment to use Del.icio.us.
Assign students topics to search. Have them evaluate the selected links, and tag the best for you to review as potential additions to the course account. If you agree, add the links. If not, save a search strategy that might help them find better materials.

A student's point of view:
