Google Shortcuts (PDF)
Google has created lots of shortcuts to help us search more effectively. It has also included a research tool within Google Docs that has me giddy with glee. It can autocite resources using MLA, Chicago, and APA.
Although it is not entirely accurate it is a good first step in trying to help students remember to source. All of the information needed to source the information appears within the document once a cite button is pressed within the Research Window.
Above you will see the PDF I created on some of the shortcuts and helpful hits that I have come across in the past few months. I thought I would share it with everyone.
- Do Search by Reading Level
- Do clarify your image search by color, size, type, etc.
- Do Autocite citations and information using the Research Bar in Docs
- Do search by a Translated Language this will give students the opportunity to see other perspectives on a topic
- Do search for an image using an already saved image! (No more forgetting to cite images!)
- Do search Full-text of Books and utilize portions of books you have not purchased
