Delicious - yummy new tool for me

When I first started working with Delicious I was a little lost. However, I got on a roll and I know I will be going back to this a lot. I've added a lot of new sites and I can't wait to go back and explore in depth some of them. I have to admit, I've heard Steve K. talk about delicious before this class and just thought he was referring to his usual morning snack. The more he talked about it the more I realized he was referring to some technology tool. Now, I have a better idea what delicious is all about. There is so much out there! I found a wonderful site on grammar that I think middle school students would like. It is has almost everything you would ever want to know about grammar but more importantly it looks fun.

How will I use this with kids? Am I ready to use this somehow in my classroom? I think right now I will use it personally and probably this year do a little more with blogging. Lynne can appreciate this....I once jumped off the very top of Frye's Leap. It took me 6 different trips to the leap with my family with everybody jumping and teasing me to jump. After 6 trips watching, studying, and thinking I probably could do it----I finally did! I have made many jumps since and think No Big Deal. Maybe all of this technology stuff will come to be No Big Deal to me too!


  1. It is all good Deb. Change is difficult and does feel strange until you do it enough times so that is does become comfortable. Just remember to never look back - always ahead.

  2. I have been listening to the sites you have been pulling, and I feel that I will probably be viewing your bookmarks often to help me in my classroom. It's good to take one thing at a time.

  3. I'll bet that there are a lot of good sites on your delicious account. Like you I really have to think about how to use this with kids.

  4. Deb, Your collaboration with Holly has been fun to watch, as has Andee's with Henry. What a great bunch of learners.
    Trust your learning style. Go slowly and understand thoroughly before you leap into an application with kids. It is always best to use a new tool personally and get to know it first.
