Digital Bookmarking and Cloud Based Storage

I am currently working to better embrace digital bookmarking and cloud based storage tools.  I am the type of person who has historically pack-ratted any and all information that I may find useful at another date.  Unfortunately, I am also a gigantic procrastinator so my filing and organizing never seems to get done.

Through the use of Diigo I have been able to resist my first response to print every article of interest. Now, instead I simply bookmark and add tags to items of interest.  Low and behold the filing and organizing is done at the same time and the mess of loose papers is dwindling fast!

Pintrest - visually addictive bookmarking site. You can search by thematic unit, curriculum, season, etc.

LiveBinders - Web based three ring binders to store and share information in an organized searchable format. Just search "education" to view countless binders full of interesting information and wonderful resources. Here is a link to one of my most recent finds.
