    Takes screen shot of a web page, including the links on that page, that can then be embedded on a web page. Good tool for creating more visual pathfinders/libguides, for example.

    I really liked this article, because it seems to honestly address the questions without purporting to know all the answers. A professor friend of mine has calculated the amount of paper he has saved by going to digital testing, and it's significant, but there are the obvious downsides of realizing that some students are able to test well due to quick searching ability rather than because they actually know the subject matter. Careful time limits on the testing may be one partial answer to the problem - if there isn't time to look everything up and still complete the test, at least there's some assurance that some of the answers came straight from the student's knowledge base, but it's not the only or even an ideal answer. Thanks for posting this thought-provoking piece.

    Bernadette, this was a riveting article! As a HS teacher in a school where students are "not allowed to have electronics during the school day" (I put this in quotes because the kids can perform tiny miracles on their phones without ever taking them out of their pockets--or looking at them!), we are constantly plagued with this question.

    Merri, I like your idea of presenting a timed test, where students have free access to the Internet. In making the transition from paper to digital, there are many sacrifices to be made--perhaps time is one of them?

    Thanks, ladies!
