Privacy settings of student accounts are pre-set so that only teachers and classmates can communicate with them. Ads presented to student account users are limited to education-related sponsors. </p></li><li><p>Security Settings Under 13Under 13 accounts students are unable to customize their profiles (no image uploads, etc.)</p></li><li><p>Teacher ConsoleThe Teacher Console will appear in your profile listhttp://www.diigo.com/teacher_entry/console </p></li><li><p>Diigo Education Pioneer BadgeYou can get a Diigo Education Pioneer badge for your blog, wiki, or website in the Teacher Console</p></li><li><p>Create a Class Group</p></li><li><p>Class Groups</p></li><li><p>Convert Existing GroupsOpen the groupClick "manage group" Click group overviewUnder group details, click "edit" Change the category to "Education - K12" The group will be upgraded to a "class group" with ad-free status, secure student accounts, and will appear within the Teacher Console</p></li><li><p>Add Members</p></li><li><p>Adding Students WITHOUT E-Mails</p></li><li><p>Add Students with Existing Diigo Accounts</p></li><li><p>Print Member Login Information</p></li><li><p>Manage Members</p></li><li><p>Graduating Student AccountsTeacher-created student accounts can be converted to a full account upon teacher request</p></li><li><p>How Are Educators Using Diigo?Gather and collaborate on online findings. Use annotations to guide students to the most important information on a site, with a discussion starter or question posted on the sticky note.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.See http://tinyurl.com/5k4yqw for more integration ideas</p><p>**Bookmark, highlight, and add sticky notes to any web page Diigo highlights and sticky notes are persistent in the sense that whenever you return to the original web page, you will see your highlights and sticky notes superimposed on the original page, just what you would expect if you highlighted or wrote on a book! Organize your bookmarks and annotations by tags or lists. Tags and lists are two different ways to organize information. Tags are best for diverse and disparate information, while lists are best for focused information. Access and search your bookmarks anywhere, by tags or by full-text Since all your bookmarks and annotations are stored in your Diigo account on the web, you can access them from any computer with web access. Your web pages are cached so they will always be available. You can search your collections not only by tags, but also by full-text, including highlights, sticky notes, and the full-text of the web pages. Multiple ways to share your bookmarks and annotations You can publish your findings to your blog by using the one-click "Send to Blog" feature, by setting up automatic daily posting, or by adding linkrolls and tagrolls to your blog. You can send multiple annotated and highlighted pages at once by email, and the recipients will see exactly what you are referring to. You can also easily post to other websites such as twitter, facebook, delicious, etc. </p><p>*Diigo groups are ideal for team research If you have any need for team-based research, be it a class, a club, an interest group, or a work group, Diigo groups are ideal for you. A Diigo group can be public, private or semi-private. Pool and organize resources using group bookmarks When a member of a Diigo group comes across a web page, he can highlight, tag, and share it to the group. In this way, group bookmarks become a repository of collective research. Group member scan also vote up bookmarks so important information stays on the top. Group sticky notes are great for discussion When adding sticky notes, you can make them private, public, or viewable only by members of a certain group. With group sticky notes, group members can interact and discuss important points right on the web page, preserving the original context. Group tag dictionary to enforce tagging consistency The group administrator can define a set of recommended tags for the group to help enforce tagging consistency. </p><p>*Find the most popular bookmarks on any subject Quite often this is an easier way to find quality resources on a given subject than using search engines Subscribe to the most recent bookmarks by tags, sites, or users This is a great way to keep track of the latest information on topics you are interested in. Get recommended content Based on your bookmarking activities, we find content personalized to your interests Get related content while browsing While you are reading a web page, the Diigo sidebar shows you who else has bookmarked that page or that site, and what other similar pages and sites they have bookmarked, giving you a great way to find related content. </p><p>*http://groups.diigo.com/groups/edn**this is Option #2 -- use scenario - it's for a new class group that you later created, and plan to add student accounts you've already created to this new class. So, for example, if you alredy have created some student accounts, click that option #2, your students will be shown up and you can point and click. But it's not to be confused with Option #3 (students that they may already have registered and created their own accounts - although they are your students, they are not considered "diigo student accounts")*</p></li></ul>
