Do you guys remember Citelighter? We mention it here from time to time because we think it is a pretty awesome tool that can be useful in many of your classrooms. They started out as a pretty simple tool to help students build bibliographies. Then they added Cognitive Prints to help teachers analyze students’ research and writing process.
Well, they’re still going at it – they continue to build on their already-great tool and add more features.
Today, they’re announcing a new teacher template creator, student outlining tools, and a teacher assessment platform.
A Freebie?! Yes, Please!
Not only that, but because the guys over at Citelighter know that Edudemic readers are at the top of their teaching game, they’re offering a freebie to Edudemic readers only!
The first 50 teachers that email email@example.com with subject line ‘I heart Edudemic’ will receive free access to theentire suite of student and teacher tools until the end of year for free.
Citelighter will spend an hour with you showing you how to set-up your classes, and even show you what they are building over the summer. So you don’t have to have used Citelighter’s tools in the past to make this work in your classroom -they’ll help you! Give them a shout and try it out!
