Tech Tip Thursday March 17, 2016
First, open a Google Doc.
Google Docs is similar to Microsoft Word, except it is 100% FREE! You can access it through Google Drive.
If you have a Gmail account then you already have a Google Drive! Open your Chrome browser and go to www.google.com. Click the 3X3 grid in the top right corner and select Drive to get started!
Type in the topic you would like to research.
For example, a student might want to research William Shakespeare.
Use the Research Feature.
Highlight the word or phrase you would like to research. Then, select Tools > Research.
A Google Search Menu will automatically open on the right side of the screen with pictures and links for the topic you searched.
Cite the Sources.
Now, things are about to get good! Any source that students use for their paper can be cited with just a click of the mouse!
Hover over the source that was used for the paper. Users will see a cite button.
A citation will automatically be placed in the document!
Need to cite a picture?
Hover over the image and click Insert.
Google will insert the citation instantly!
Note: Be sure to filter the images for "Free to Use"!
