1. Yolink and sweet search get it together http://blog.findingdulcinea.com/2010/09/transforming-web-research-for-students.html Studies show that students, rarely review more than the top three search results, and almost never beyond six. Studies also show that most students cannot differentiate between credible results and misinformation. SweetSearch, enhanced by Yolink, enables students to review a long list of vetted search results, zero in on the ones that are most relevant to their task, and then save those results to a Google Doc (with the link included), EasyBib’s citation generator, or social bookmarking services.
