This resource is a free tool that helps students organize data, notes, and citations obtained from project-based investigations and research.  By dragging the NoteStar icon to the toolbar, users can save citations and other digital data with one click. The tool also allows them to create personal notations for future reference or sharing with partners.  The tool is available only to registered teacher-users, who will do the initial set-up. Students use a password to access their accounts, but are not required to disclose personal information.  The teacher can monitor any student's progress at any time.

This resource was intended for use with ThinkTank, a related cost-free tool that helps students develop and narrow research questions.  Outlines created in ThinkTank can be exported to NoteStar. NoteStar is part of the collection of online tools available through 4Teachers.org.
