Introducing Symbaloo to OHE - A Fun Way to Search and Bookmark!

I am excited to introduce a fun way for sharing bookmarked websites with students and teachers at Oak Hills Elementary! I first heard about Symbaloo at a conference several years ago.  I loved it immediately.  It is not only the most visual way to bookmark sites, Symbaloo is the perfect opening page for any computer!  Within Symbaloo, the user can create "webmixes", which are pages of bookmarked sites.  Each webmix has tiles that resemble apps on an Apple device.  Each tile directs the browser to the bookmarked site.  

Symbaloo also has an app for when our students are using their iPads!  They can access the OHE Symbaloo from the app or their iPad browser.  Either way, it is fun and easy to use!
