Abstract

Abstract: The Monetary Theory course at this college located in the Middle East is delivered within the context of a student centered, constructivist, collaborative learning paradigm. To help facilitate this a number of Web 2.0 tools were piloted in the delivery of the course in 2009, including a Ning community and the use of Diigo social bookmarking to enable students to share, annotate and discuss resources, with the aim of increasing student engagement and thus develop deeper learning. This paper seeks to examine the pedagogical arguments for introducing social bookmarking in the context of this course, taught to Arab students in an English as a second language environment. It will examine the practical challenges of implementation, how these were overcome and the reaction of learners to these changes. It will conclude with an overview of the lessons learned and the plan for further utilization of social bookmarking in courses.
