Delicious is a FREE social bookmarking site that allows users to create publicly shared bookmark lists. Learn more here.

I first encountered delicious at the PNAIS TechShare conference in June. A group bookmark list was created for us to contribute fun and exciting things we found over the course of the conference, and many people have continued to add to it ever since. You can view it here:

How could teachers use delicious? I can think of many uses, particularly for research projects as students find helpful sites for a particular subject. Any ideas?

Why would the average person use delicious? Because your bookmarks travel with you! If you save them to your delicious account, you can log in from any computer and have access to your hard-earned list of special places. Also, because you can “tag” the bookmarks as you add them, patterns start to emerge and you can now search a massive list of bookmarks by the keywords associated. If you’re one of those people whose bookmarks aren’t organized to begin with, this will help get you started.
