Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – RefME Helps Students Create Bibliographies

RefME is a nice service that students can use to create bibliographies. The service offers Android, iOS, and browser-based tools to help students save references, organize them into projects, and create bibliographies. In the video embedded below I provide an overview of how to use RefME’s browser-based tools.

It is worth noting that RefME and tools like it don’t always format citations perfectly. That said, I think they are still valuable because they help get students into the habit of citing their sources of information and keeping a record of the sources they use. Furthermore, if RefME or one of the other bibliography generators does make a mistake you can turn that into a teaching opportunity with your students. Point out the flaw to students and teach them how to correct it.
