Organized Chaos
WorkFlowy is a zoomable and shareable document that provides an excellent way for students to organize materials for research papers, classes, and school. When used for a research paper, the students were able to cut out the notecard option, link each note to the source it came from, differentiate how many notes they have from each source, and see in a glance what they still need to find information on. WorkFlowy can be a great way for students to not only organize their thoughts for papers, but also provide organization throughout daily life.
