Using netvibes in classroom

CMJN de base

This week I have started using Netvibes and I found it really interesting. This is because in a single page, there is displayed the latest updates of all your favourite websites.  This will reduce the hassle of jumping from one webpage to another. One blog post which I liked how the author described netvibes is ‘Netvibes just rocks so much, and keeps getting better’, where Keith represented netvibes as ” a personal home page where you can add links, notes, and all kinds of other modules.Whatever computer you go on, you can log into your Netvibes page, and there you are, right at home.”

I think that using Netvibes in classroom can be very useful. First of all, it keeps the students up to date. For example, on the dashboard, one can add a to do list for group work. By this students will keep in mind what their tasks are and when they have finished it, they can delete it off the dashboard.  Moreover,  the teacher can use WebQuest in order to gather the learning results from his/her students. Another way that Netvibes can be used in classrooms is for E-portfolios. This gives the teacher the access of all the students information in just one site, without the need to browse through other websites. Furthermore, Netvibes can be used for social bookmarking. This means that students can share them with others. However, this can be done better with other services like diigo. One can continue reading about different ways that Netvibes can be used in classroom by reading the article ’12 ways to use Netvibes in the classroom.’

    I have also started using it very recently, and I totally agree with your views and ideas. Having all the information presented in the same page is of great comfort. All latest RSS feeds, news and gossip will be updated daily; hence one will always be provided with the most recent information; making it very efficient. Furthermore, NetVibes is free of charge, one can import and export feeds, together with adding data from ones browser. There are other similar information aggregates such as Scoopit, iGoogle and igHome which have the same aims and are of equal convenience. For more information on different alternatives one can look at this website:
