We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the great team at Citelighter for sponsoring EdCamp Detroit 2012. We appreciate the hard work your team has devoted to transform the educational landscape of tomorrow. With great innovators like Citelighter, our students are getting the best tools.
Last year, when I taught middle school language arts, I worked with the students to understand the importance of maintaining organization throughout the research process – especially when it came to remembering which source went with which piece of information. I only wish that I had Citelighter as a tool last year.
Citelighter is an intuitive online research platform that enables students and professionals to quickly find and record facts, cite sources, automatically create the bibliography and write better papers/documents all in the cloud. Citelighter is a free productivity tool designed to help anyone who does internet research. After students highlight and grab the information they’d like to use, they can add personal comments below their pasted material they just grabbed. I especially believe in this feature because students can add their thoughts as they’re working. Reading is thinking. Thus, as they’re brainstorming and pulling information together, they’re able to include personal reflections along the way. All of this information is safely placed into the Citelighter website. Now, you never have to hear “I left my flashdrive at home” or “I know I emailed it to you….” Everything is accessible in the cloud!
