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 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
