@ Your Library . . .

October 14, 2016

Please be reminded your high school provides you – students and staff – with a powerful online resource, NoodleTools.  In collaboration with the ESU10 consortium of schools, Lexington High School provides this resource for citing, annotating and archiving sources, taking notes, organizing and outlining, collaborating with peers, and sharing with instructors.  To access this tool go to the high school home page, click on the Library tab, click on the Research/Citation link.  Be sure you pick up the latest 24/7/365 brochure from your library with the password information to create your personal NoodleTools account.  

From the NoodleTools overview web page  http://www.noodletools.com/overview/ . . . What is NoodleTools?  NoodleTools is an online research management platform that promotes critical thinking and authentic research. Students stay organized as they evaluate information, build accurate citations, archive source material, take notes, outline topics, and prepare to write. Three differentiated levels support individual students across grades and abilities. The classroom environment allows librarians and teachers to provide feedback, monitor individual contributions to group work, and view statistics about source use. In contrast to an auto-cite, auto-evaluate product, we support students to engage deeply in research and produce original work. NoodleTools is also designed with online student privacy in mind.
