This tool can help students organize their ideas when writing papers and/or doing research.  It allows them to highlight important information, drag information around and add their own comments and notes once they've read something.  I haven't tried it but think it could be a really useful tool for students who have to do research and write a lot of papers or essays.  Another bonus is that it adds the bibliography which always seems to be one of the complicated issues!

Laura Spencer's insight:

Modern Lessons is a free online learning platform designed for teachers and students looking to bolster their existing technology skills (or to get started with technology altogether). Many “basics” classes are offered—such as how to start a Twitter account for your classroom. A section also focuses on resources teachers will find useful, such as a guide to using Google in Education and courses on integrating iPads into your classroom.

instaGrok | A new way to learn | Cool Web 2.0 Tools for Educators | Scoop.it

instaGrok is a visual search engine and interactive learning tool collects educational content and displays it in the form of a web of related words. The tool is very appealing because it offers a variety of multimedia features to meet the unique learning needs of students. In addition to the visual map, content is displayed in the form of text, images, video and web links. Better yet, students can use the handy slider tool to self select the level of difficulty of the results displayed  which provides them with access usable information.

The fast pace growth of these tools is so very exciting ~

Susan's curator insight, October 11, 2013 3:36 AM

I have just had a look at this and think it could be a great tool for project work.  Students type in any topic and the tool generates a 'GROK' which is a type of mind-map with all related topics.  You can then simplify and personalize your Grok by adding pins, eliminating unwanted info, creating personal notes, etc... Edmodo allows you to launch the App directly from your Edmodo site too which is convenient.  It looks a bit confusing at first but I think it's worth a look!
