“Social Bookmarking, Using Del.icio.us”

Jeff Utecht is an international educator currently working in Shanghai, China. Prior to Shanghai, Jeff worked in Saudi Arabia and Washington State. Jeff received a Teacher Leadership Project grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2001 and his MS in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Technology in 2004. Jeff has presented at the Near East South Asia teacher’s conference and has been involved in staff development trainings for the past 6 years. Living and working within the international community has given Jeff first hand experience of the “flattening of our world.” From the wireless deserts of the Arabian Peninsula to the fast paced changes in mainland China, Jeff provides a global perspective on technology and education. At present, Jeff maintains several sites including saschinaonline.org, pudongnervecentral.com, and oversees the operation of teentek.com .

Why save web sites to your computer where they can not be accessed by your students? Using a social bookmarking site such as del.icio.us teachers can bookmark web pages to be used in the classroom or for student to reference at home for homework. A screencast of using del.icio.us.

    I have been having some technical difficulties with this presentation. I have tried to watch it several times and when it gets to 12 seconds it stops and nevers picks up again. My husband tried it on his laptop too and was also unable to view it. Has anyone had a similiar problem and been able to get around it?

    You’re right … there’s something wrong with that file.

    I did get it to work though … by clicking on the “fast forward” button then the “play” button to get it past the trouble spot. Actually, I had to do that a few times at different places.

    Try doing that for the immediate … we’ll work on getting a new version of the file uploaded to our server as soon as possible.

    Thanks for letting us know. We’ll post an update here in the comments as soon as we’ve got it fixed. 😉

    I forwarded through and did get it to play eventually. I noticed the same problem on the presentation on RSS by Mr. Utecht. It seems to freeze up after the first 8 seconds or so…

    Thanks for your help.

    We noticed that too. We’re working now to get both fixed asap. When it’s done we will include comments on the posts effected.

    Thanks again for bringing this to our attention!. 😉
