Yahoo – Delicious
Dear Yahoo…A key idea was to utilise Delicious as a national teaching resource. To showcase social bookmarking to a wider teaching audience. For Becta to talk to Yahoo, to discuss such a service. Now it was one of the best ideas to come from a truly inspiring conference day. #BectaX was No1 on the ‘Twitter UK’ trends list on Weds 31st March – so you know it had many of the right educators, forward thinkers present. However, as with many good ideas, wings are easily found but the landing gear is so often forgotten.I am hoping that this email may prompt further conversation. Creating a national, structured, social teaching bookmarking space is a truly inspired idea and Yahoo have the capacity to make it happen. Every school teacher, every school student potentially – could make contact with Delicious before they leave education, and I personally think that in itself is an invaluable experience. I do hope you will help develop this idea, even better, investigate and provide the landing gear.
