Creating Bibliographies -- A Great Way to Use Cell Phones in Class

For months now, we've been shouting about EasyBib as a great way for students to create bibliographies.  A challenger has appeared, however: RefMe

Like EasyBib, RefMe allows students to create a bibliography in MLA format by either searching for their sources (books, websites, YouTube videos, and 36 other source types) or filling out details in a form.

It has a Chrome extension to allow for one-click citations, and also a mobile app that allows students to scan the barcode of a book in order to create a citation.

This is a great way to harness the power that is already in the pockets of many of our students, and to shift the paradigm of cell phones in class.

Have you used reference tools with your students?  Do you have other tips for using cell phones in class?  Let us know in the comments.
