PYP-5 Does Diigo

We have decided on Diigo as the social bookmarking site for PYP-5 Exhibition work. Diigo is a social bookmarking site that allows you to research, share and collaborate bookmarks.

Diigo provides a safer environment in the following ways:
  • No age requirement
  • Private 
  • We will use our CIS passwords
PYP-5, please create a Diigo for Exhibition. Use your first name + CIS username as your Diigo username and your CIS password typed in twice as your Diigo password. Teachers and mentors may choose their own usernames and passwords.

You will then have to log in to your Gmail account and verify that you have created an account with Diigo.  Do so by following the link that Diigo has sent in the email.

Once you verify, you will be asked to install the Diigo Chrome extension.  Watch the video provided and then click, Add to Chrome.
