Thing 13:

I had never heard of a social bookmarking tool before I watched the Common Craft tutorial on on Teacher Tube. It makes sense to have a place that saves all of your bookmarks online rather than the "old fashioned" way to bookmark websites on a personal computer.

The Common Craft explanation gave a wonderful example of how this tool could help teachers. He gives the example of algebra teachers who need to get lesson plans online. If they share all of their bookmarks, they'll continue to discover new and useful sites for lesson planning.

Librarians can also use this site. They can share webpages on any range of things from book reviews, lesson plan ideas, blogs, etc.
