Resources for Students

Communications Tools

Poll Everywhere - (www.polleverywhere.com) This is a service that replaces personal response systems. It is easy to use and works from any device, using internet access or text messaging. Similar to and different from Socrative at the same time.

Remind - Remind (www.remind.com) is a free service that lets you send a text (SMS) message to a large group of recipients without revealing your personal mobile number.

Socrative - (www.socrative.com) This is another service that replaces and improves upon physical personal response systems and instead is compatible with just about every platform with web-based tools and mobile apps. 

Today's Meet - (www.todaysmeet.com) This is a service that allows you to create a virtual meeting room with a scrolling console into which anyone in the room can add text, links, and other media. Think of it as meeting minutes that you create on the fly, and that anyone can contribute to directly. For up to 30 days after the room is created, the entire contents can be downloaded and saved.

Writing

Common Errors in English - Paul Brians, an Emeritus Professor of English at Washington State University, manages a comprehensive website covering Common Errors in English (http://public.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/) and is also available as a book. 

Grammar Handbook - A resource at the The Center for Writing Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Grammar Handbook (http://www.cws.illinois.edu/workshop/writers/) is an excellent resource for students of any age and writing ability.

Purdue OWL  - To take writing to the next level, direct your students to the Purdue University OWL (online writing lab - https://owl.english.purdue.edu/) for writing tips, research help (including citing and formatting references), and many other tools. 

The Writer’s Handbook - The University of Wisconsin at Madison maintains The Writer’s handbook (http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/), an excellent guide for improving writing.

Research

BibMe - BibMe (www.bibme.com) is an online tool which creates citations for any type of source, either by manual data entry or by looking up the source by one of several pieces of identifying information. It can create citations formatted for a number of styles. BibMe allows you to create projects and save citations in each one for later access.

Memonic - Memonic (www.memonic.com) is a relatively new tool but shows great promise. It works in some ways like Pocket, except that is allows the user to store clippings from websites rather than the an entire page. The free version limits the amount of storage and number of clippings, but it is still very generous and likely more than enough for even the most studious of high schoolers.

Pocket - Think of Pocket (www.getpocket.com) as Pinterest for articles. You can add any web address to your Pocket and then access the list on any device. It works with a combination of web-based tools, browser extensions, and mobile apps.

Zoho Notebook - This tool (notebook.zoho.com) is a component of the Zoho suite of tools I mentioned above. Notebook allows users to organize reference materials and keep track of them over the course of the project. Like Zoho’s other features, it integrates well with a variety of other services and programs.

Zotero - Zotero (www.zotero.com) is a reference management solution that can manage research materials and files, plus bibliographical material. It can create citations from these materials, and offers a host of other features. It integrates with many other services, word processors, and browsers, and syncs online between devices.
