EdTech Tool Uses:From the Zotero website - "Zotero collects all your research in a single, searchable interface. You can add PDFs, images, audio and video files, snapshots of web pages, and really anything else. Zotero automatically indexes the full-text content of your library, enabling you to find exactly what you're looking for with just a few keystrokes.". But also it allows you to share your collections and so collaboratively develop lists of references - invaluable if you are doing any academic work as a school student or as part of CPD. Most important of all, it can reliably format your references in the diverse ways academia demands, with no effort at all (except to enter the data accurately in the first place!).
