How I Use It
I used this product to with my students to complete a research paper in 8th grade English class. Students were to put their sources for their paper in the bibliography and create a minimum of 10 notecards . The bibliography was very easy to use. Students could import citations to the bibliography from their database sources, and they could choose the format they needed to be in. We used MLA format. In order to save and store sources and notecards students did need extensive teacher created instructions. The teacher first needs to learn to navigate the site in order to help students. The site itself does not include thorough directions.
My Take
I think this tool in very beneficial when completing a research project. It helps students to stay organized and store relevant information. It also helps students cite sources in the proper format. The only disadvantage is that the website itself does not have extensive instructions on it. It can be confusing to students who are first time users.
