h1. {color:#0000ff}What is Diigo? What does it do? {color}

Diigo is a free social bookmarking, research, and knowledge sharing tool created to mimic the ease of taking notes while providing a network for sharing and discovering information. Diigo allows you to take personal notes and highlight text information on web pages just as you would on a piece of paper. You can then bookmark and save this information for further review, while adding tags to keep everything organized. In bookmarking this information, you can also choose to share with colleagues and friends to allow them to access the web page, view your notes and highlights, and add their own annotations. All of this information is also saved online and can be accessed by any computer or browser, including cell phones with browsing capabilities. For a more illustrative explanation of of how Diigo works, view the video below from Diigo's website.

Diigo is pronounced "dee-go."  Diigo stands for "Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff" [^1^|#References].  Diigo was developed by twelve people who are experienced in "software development, marketing, academia, and investment management" [^1^|#References].  Diigo is a place for sharing research and knowledge while also doubling as a social network for friends and people with like interests.  Diigo is a place where people can "discover, process, manage, and share online information more productively and effectively" with friends or other people who are interested in a certain subject [^1^|#References].  Diigo is a great way for people who share the same interest to socialize. Diigo is great for the audience of students and teachers because Diigo can help students learn and teachers teach.

How does it Work? 
Diigo is a free website and it does not take too much personal information to create a profile. As a social bookmarking site, Diigo can "bookmark" or "tag" segments from a website or a whole website and organize them.  After you "bookmark" or "tag" a page you may share it with whoever you would like.

Diigo has bookmarking and saving, highlighting, note taking, searching, sharing, and collaborating features that make this cite extremely unique. With the bookmarking and saving feature Diigo allows the ability to add tags to help keep everything organized and provide easy access and retrieval.

This information is automatically saved so anytime you come back to that web page the information will always be highlighted. Note taking is easy when you use Diigo. It allows you to take notes on a web page similarly to the way in which you would add a sticky note to a paper document. Diigo provides powerful search features for retrieving and locating information throughout your bookmarks. You can search the web page titles, URLs, tags, comments, highlights, the full text of the bookmarked pages, or all of these. Diigo will also let you share your bookmarks, complete with annotations, to friends and colleagues. You can send the information to individuals even if they don’t use Diigo.

\---\-
\\

In the elementary education setting, Diigo can be a great tool to for teachers to be able to communicate with the parents or vice versa about questions or comments about student's homework, test, behavior, etc.  Also teachers can upload assignments and lectures on Diigo for a student who had to miss school for any reason. The teachers can leave comments on the assignments to help the students understand what is going on, or highlight important aspects of the assignment or lectures. Secondary education students can use Diigo for communication with other peers in the different schools, states, or countries.  Diigo is a great way for online discussions with people who cannot communicate in person. Diigo is an excellent tool for obtaining perspectives, knowledge, and information from other peers who think differently. When working on class projects, students obtain information from students with different educational backgrounds, or schooling types to broaden their research.  For college level students, Diigo is a great way for students to share information. For example, a project team, a class, or a club can create a group on Diigo to pool relevant resources, findings and thoughts together [7|https://wiki.itap.purdue.edu/display/INSITE/Diigo#Diigo-References]. Diigo makes it easy to share information and ideas with people if you cannot talk to them in person. In the business industry an employee can use Diigo to find people with similar interest of jobs to discuss business and other corporation information.

Diigo’s current educational value is a research and bookmarking website. Teachers are able to post information on Diigo and then have students look up more information and combine it all while using information already posted on Diigo for group projects[6|https://wiki.itap.purdue.edu/display/INSITE/Diigo#Diigo-References].  Students can combine their thoughts and research on a Diigo page to write a paper that includes credible information.  Students can share their opinions with peers across the country and get different insights from different perspectives. Diigo allows students to communicate with one another like they were face to face.

If Team Diigo had international partners we would explain to them what Diigo is about and then we would exchange e-mails on how to use Diigo.  We would also try to include them in everything we did to create a Diigo page.  We would add them to our friend's on Diigo.  We think that everyone would get along and we could work through the cultural differences.  Also Diigo would be great to use if we had international partners because we could easily communicate with them by leaving comments back and forth or even instant messaging.  Also it would be great to have an international prespective on how Diigo works and what kind of uses Diigo has in other countries.
