How I Use It
At the elementary level, 4th grade in particular, I had students create their own bibliography of all the resources they used to write an animal research paper. It is easy to use, especially the book are where students can enter the ISBN of a book and Easybib will find the information needed to cite the book and creates it for you. The only problem I had with the free version is that if students accidentally hovered over a video advertisement, it would start playing and it is diificult to stop.
My Take
Easybib is a great tool for creating easy citations in multiple formats! I really liked this resource for the elementary level becasue students do not need usernames and passwords to use. The problem with hovering over video advertisements in the free version is annoying, but did not keep me from using the product with young students. This is a worthwhile resource that I would use again!
