Tuesday Tip! It’s Time to Split
When note-taking for research, it is generally better to avoid highlighting, copying, and pasting. This makes it easier for students to report information in their own words while creating notes. At times, like when doing research, it helps to have a resource open on one half of the screen and a place for note-taking open on the other half. The note-taking half might be a tool like Google Keep, a Google Document, or a Google Slide. Tab Scissors and Tab Glue are great Chrome Extensions for such a task.
Tab Scissors is an organizational tool which splits one window into two smaller side-by-side windows. When creating a split screen with one click, all the tabs to the left of the selected one will remain on the left. The rest will move to the window on the right. Tab Glue brings the two split windows back together in one window.
