New Educator and Student Content 12/14/11

There are new materials available in the Educator and Student Portals today on EasyBib. On these pages you’ll find tons of great content that will help both students and educators alike in their roles in 21st Century Education. We’re rolling out new content for each section weekly, so make sure you check back often!

What’s new this week:

In the Student Section this week we have some new Topics Guides on popular subjects, so students can get ideas about starting their research. We also are releasing the fourth part of our Writing Guide – Write:

“The act of writing is difficult to describe since everyone goes about it differently. Some people like to draft quickly and revise slowly. Others like to make sure that each paragraph is perfect before proceeding to the next. Some like framing their papers meticulously in neat outlines and following them to a T, while others prefer to write and see where their ideas take them. Most writers are between these extremes. But we point them out to make you aware that everyone’s writing style is different and that there is no magic incantation that produces a perfect paper.”

In the Educator Section this week we have the lesson plan ‘Developing Note Taking Skills with Diigo’:

“With the majority of research being done online today, it is important that students are exposed to and experiment with a variety of tools that allow them to take notes on digital webpages. One such tool is Diigo. It is a useful experience for students to become familiar with current, popular note-taking technologies like Diigo that enhance students’ technology literacy skills.”
