After you have linked to and signed in to a Mapskip Page, follow these steps:

Notice the tool bar at the top if this picture.  Once you sign in to Diigo, you will be able

to highlight the IMPORTANT details.  Use the mouse to highlight your text, then click the

"Highlight" button on the toolbar.

Make sure you choose "writing5", like you see in the image below. 

In your text, write your code name because only your team name will appear.

Type your ideas:

  • a connection to your life (or someone from your team)
  • a question you still have

Highlight and copy what you have typed. Click OK.  Your note area will appear pink. Go to the next step.




5.  Add comment


In this example you can see:

  • yellow highlighted text
  • pink sticky note text
  • my sticky note words
  • the comment


Notice in the comment:

  • I copied and pasted the text from my sticky note to the comment box.
  • I corrected spelling and punctuation.
  • I added another questions and connection.
  • I added my name (you use your code name)
  • I added a thank you.



6. Add the bookmark Diigo


Using your mouse, highlight the most important details.

Go to the very top menu bar that says, "Diigo."

Click it and choose "Bookmark this page."
