I agree with your assessment Heather that ScoopIt would be good for upper grades students to add connection, summaries, etc. Before the idea of using a social bookmarking site came up, for webquests I'd previously used http://www.zunal.com It has it's limitations though because you can only post two webquests you've created before you have to pay for an account, but there are lots of pre-created webquests to use for grades K-12. I also have used the websites Edmodo, an educational social network site which is like a simple version of facebook where students can communicate between classes and posts assignments, take quizzes, etc. I also like Glogster a lot. It's like an online scrapbook page where you can add text and multimedia. I use it at the beginning of the year as a getting to know your students activity. Students create a page about themselves.

    I will have to look into Scoopit some more, however; if it has more text with it then it may be helpful for upper grades to add in connections, summaries, inferences etc. What sites do you use with... more
