Now that you have found resources, it is time to start collecting them into a project portfolio. Here are some online tools to help.
Directions:  Begin with #1 and work through #4 below. In the additional tools section at the bottom of the page, you will find all of the documents from this module. Always make sure you have used and saved the documents.
Evernote - Research at your fingertips

Evernote is a free online tool that allows you to collect information in one place and keep your research at your fingertips. With Evernote you will be able to:

  • Save webpages
  • Create notes
  • Sync your research notes with other devices
  • Share with notes with your collaborative team and teacher
  • There is a free app which allows you to add and access your notes on mobile devices.

Here are tools to help you get started with Evernote.

  • Work through the Getting Started Guide for step-by-step directions in creating and using an Evernote account.
  • Create an account in Evernote. (If you are working on a group project, share your Evernote account with your team mates.)

Save your notes, resources and your KWL chart in Evernote.

 

Diigo

In Module One you created a Diigo account to save and share resources.
Now that you have keywords identified, apply them in Diigo.

Insert your keyword search terms in the TAGS field when you save your bookmarks.

Diigo

Share your Diigo bookmarks to the group created by your teacher. You might want to review the video, from Module 1, Sharing Diigo Bookmarks to a Group.

Watch the video, A Guide to Annotating Using Diigo, to learn how to get the most out of this powerful tool for your own use and to become part of a knowledge sharing community.
Don't forget that there is an app for Diigo to use on your mobile device. Click here for Diigo Tools and Apps.

Padlet/Wallwisher
#4

Remember, Padlet  is a tool to brainstorm the key words you could use for your searches. Padlet is a great tool to create a wall of sticky notes with search ideas. Sticky notes can contain up to 160 characters of text plus links to images and videos.
