How I Use It
I use NoodleTools primarily with my English and AVID teachers. So far, I've only introduced to 8th grade students and 7th grade STEM and AVID students.
A great overall tool that helps students arrange and store information for a research project. Collaboration happens at two levels: full and peer review.
At the behest of librarians, NoodleTools has added a "Quickcite" feature which allows users to copy and paste a citation from a database article. While this definitely could be a plus, the Quickcite feature is buried behind 3 clicks, making navigation difficult and adding on another layer of instruction. This frustrates both teachers and students, and makes me reluctant to offer the app to 6th grade students. I've tried several times to get the developers to make the Quckcite feature more accessible, but so far they have refused.
Another great feature that is absent is a citation tool that would collect the metadata from a web page. EasyBib does it, why can't NoodeTools?
