Annotated Bibliography

“An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.” (Michael Engle, Cornell)

This week in EDTECH501 I explored the mechanics of writing an APA Annotated Bibliography. Resources such as the Purdue Online Writing Lab, Google Scholar, and various databases were used to research the topic of video games in the classroom. I kept my scope pretty broad and ended up reading many articles in a very short period of time. The program Zotero was used to organize and format my resources. This helped quite a bit by putting the information in the right order. I got a little flustered with the syntax of formatting the sources but I am happy with the results.
