    I think there is a way for me to save some websites so that students can quickly access them. Anybody know what I am talking about and can steer me in the right direction? :confused:

    THANKS

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but can you create a folder on your desktop to your favorites? That way they wouldn't have to open an internet page before clicking the link they need.

    Hope this helps!?!

    Sqworl
    Del.ic.ious
    Diigo

    all allow you to mark, group, share bookmarks. Sqworl may be the easiest for younger students.

    One other way is to create a page with the links that you want on there. It can be very simply done in word, create the document and type in the exact link address http://whatever.com. Then you can put it on the desktop and the kids can open it and go directly to the site you want them to be on. You can make it either an html document or just a word file.

    you could also paste a shortcut to the site on the desktop of the computer. This is what we do at our school.

    I think KU Alum's post is the best idea - these tools are useful all the way through ones life, so learning early may be best. The other methods don't apply to the "real world" as much.

    I second the delicious suggestion. I use it all the time for my own bookmarks and LOVE it!
