RefME

Scan your book or journal barcodes to easily acquire and generate references in seconds using your phone’s camera.  You can reference any source: books, articles, webpages, videos, newspaper, legislation, artwork and more!  It includes over 7,500 reference styles (who knew there were that many to begin with), including APA and MLA.   BV folks, you can sign in with your Google email so you won’t have yet another username and password to remember.   See my instructional video to see just how easy this is.

Dropbox

I have suggested this tool to so many people over the last few weeks that I feel that you ALL should hear this.  Get 2GB free of “cloud space” at dropbox.  You can also earn up to 16GB FREE.  SO WHY YOU ASK???

  1. Bring your photos, docs and videos anywhere! That is their slogan, tells it all.
  2. You can ACCESS YOUR FILES on your phone, your ipod touch,  your ipad, your android tablet, etc – no more transferring them from device to computer with wires!
  3. Free app on droid and i platforms!
  4. NO MORE CD’s, NO MORE FLASH DRIVES, NO MORE WIRES!!!
  5. Yes, it installs on your PC or MAC.
  6. PERFECT to back up precious family pictures, what would happen if your computer crashes or your house burns down, your photos are PRICELESS!!!
  7. Drag and drop files!  Not single uploads like many others
  8. You can “share” a folder with others and they have access to the contents of that folder!

You all know me… I am a WEB2.OL junkie… this really is one that I would NEVER want to live without.

Get it here (yep, I earn free space if you use this link, but I am worth it!):

BONUS— our students can use it to easily transport files to/from home and THEY CAN install it on our computers (that is why I tagged it “No Install Required”).  It says the don’t have admin rights, but proceed on and they do.
