del.icio.us is now delicious

Delicious, the social bookmarking website, recently went through a major overhaul, making it even more user-friendly. In case you’re unfamiliar with it, you can learn more by clicking here.

I’ve been using Delicious ever since I heard Kylene Beers speak about it several times last summer. At first I thought it would be a good way to keep track of “my favorites” so I could access them from any computer in the world. However, I also tapped into the power of looking at other educators’ bookmarks/favorites to see what they were reading and saving in their Delicious accounts.

So, for the sake of opening up a delicious exchange of favorites, I figured I’d post links to some of my favorites that I’ve saved on my Delicious.
To view websites I’ve tagged just click on the word in quotes below:

  • writing
  • If you have a Delicious Account, and you’re willing to share your sites with others, then please leave a comment with your Delicious URL.

    I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

    I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).

    1. I use and love delicious but I must say that I am very glad they dropped the weird periods in the middle of the word. I could never remember where they went. 🙂 Here is my “teaching stuff” collection . . . http://delicious.com/lizalee/TeachingStuff

      I also want to tell you about a cool add on to delicious. It’s called del.ishli.st (http://del.ishli.st/lizalee). If you see something cool on the web, you can tag it “wishlist” in delicious and it appears on this wishlist. You can add tags of stars (***) to mark it’s importance and even with prices ($20). It’s a great little tool for keeping track of those must have items that you hope a family member will get you. Kind of like an Amazon Wishlist for the whole web.
