– blog

– storage for knowledge (concepts with descriptions and detail info at lower level)

You can very easy capture info from the Web and save both in your personal notebook (you can create a number of notebooks) or public notebook ( ERRORNO PUBLIC NOTEBOOKS – I have received such a comment from kreeo developer).

They also expressed awareness of the pitfalls of searching the Web and cautioned against gathering too much information without focusing their topic or evaluating their results as they progressed in their research.

    Discovery: students appreciated the exposure to new perspectives and areas of research–essentially the increased opportunity for serendipitous events.
    Connectivity: students liked the brainstorming aspect of Web searches and how they would return to their searching strategy as new information appeared. Students also made connections in terms of sequencing tasks and developed a sense of the connections emerging between their sources.
