Google Docs Research Tool

tech tips

There is a great tool in Google Apps that makes it easy to do proper research.  One of the biggest issues that many teachers have with students who do research online is that they do not keep track of their sources or that they use images and other media that is copyrighted.  The Research Tool can fix many of these problems and make it easier for them to do proper research.  I was always afraid of hearing my students say that the source for their information is “Google”, but now they can easily insert a citation or source link to their sources.  As a student myself working on papers for my Masters classes, this makes my life a lot easier and it is something that not many people may know about.

The video below goes over the basics of the Research Tool.
