Yolink. Today I finally got someone to show me what exactly Yolink does, so let me now share that with you! Yolink is an application that you can download on your computer for free. It allows you to scan webpages that you are searching for specific information, using key words, without going to the pages. It organizes the information for you where you then have a choice to import it to google docs, create an instant bibliographic reference or share through email.
It is really best explained through demonstration. Check out this quick screencast:
How to use Yolink
As well as partnering with Google Docs, Evernote and many other useful applications, yolink has partnered with Sweet Search for safe student searching. Many times, Google searches yield unintended results that students can innocently run across. Sweet Search is a safe search engine for students to use when researching at home or at school. It works with yolink just as well.
With Yolink, you can teach your students to search smarter and help them develop their critical thinking skills. Check out their classroom resources on their link page.
