NoodleTools is an online research platform that promotes critical thinking and authentic research. Features of NoodleTools allow students to stay organized as they evaluate information, build accurate citations and bibliographies, take notes, outline topics, and prepare to write. Students can also share and collaborate with other student researchers. There are three differentiated levels of support for individual students across grades and abilities. The online environment allows librarians and teachers to provide feedback, monitor individual contributions to group work, and view statistics about source use. NoodleTools empowers students to engage deeply in research and produce original work.
