Abstract

T his paper explores the potential for the use of social bookmarking to do two things: to support knowledge development during the religious education (RE) Initial Teacher Training course, and to aid the formative assessment of trainees. This paper has arisen out of an ongoing exploratory pilot project examining the potential of RE student-teacherled trials of a free web-based social bookmarking application. Tentative conclusions of this exploratory paper are drawn from the descriptive analyses of users of the web-based application, the resulting group folksonomy, and the generation of asynchronous discussions. The results give an insight into trainee RE teachers’ subject-knowledge development priorities throughout the course, as well as general subject-related concerns.
