Tech Tool #2

This week the tool I am looking at is Instagrok.  It is a research tool that is geared towards students.  When you type in a search term, it generates a web for you, and then you can pin, or unpin information.  It encourages you to evaluate sources, and has a journal where you can write the paper.  It also helps with citation.

I am still trying it out, I signed up for a 90 – day trial.  Pricing is not too bad, at $45 per year for teachers, or $65 per year for a librarian and up to 800 students.

Has anyone else used this tool?  What are some of the advantages/disadvantages you have found?
