Noodle Tools for organizing research and writing

This month I worked collaboratively with Kim Saxon and Leah Oltean to teach students how to organize information and cite sources using the library service Noodle Tools. Noodle tools helps students understand the note taking process helping students divide their information by direct quotations, paraphrasing, and original ideas to ensure they are giving appropriate credit. Student can organize note cards into piles and tag cards by themes or concepts to help create structure for the final paper.

To use Noodle Tools with your classes contact me for assistance!
