@Andrea, I noticed you mentioned you can annotate within the Mendeley mobile version - how do you go about this - I haven't noticed any annotation tools on their iPad client - am I totally missing something? Thanks for the post by the way!

I'm using a similar combination of apps on the iPad: 1. Mendeley is my main reference manager. 2. I use Dropbox and Goodreader to annotate on the iPad, once annotated I just overwrite the old PDF on Mendeley (I don't mind not having a clean copy). I'm curious though: has anyone found that some Goodreader annotations are not viewable in Mendeley. This is just recently causing problems for me since I usually do two types of annotations - highlighting and notes. Highlighting will show up, and the notes icon will show up, but I can't click on the note or otherwise access it. It's also not available on the Notes tab of the paper entry on Mendeley.

I am new to the iPad, it did a lot of research prior to invest on buying one, the new one (chuckling). I am using GoodReader+DropBox+Notability. Goodreader has an update and works great on the new iPad. I am still discovering all the features but I do like the highlighting, annotations. Bookmarks and a list of annotations are also very useful. Great article :)

Erika, I am working still on a *gasp* first generation iPad. My department lent me this iPad and I am saving my pennies for a new fancy one. I am wondering if GoodReader has updated for the stellar retina display I've heard so much about? Just a thought. If they haven't, I'm sure they will. In my opinion, any annotation app that will allow you to export the summary is what to go with: I use those summary documents to integrate with Scrivener when I am writing (see my "7 Ways to Survive a Lit Review" Gradhacker post:

Nice article! So here is what I did, I have a Mendeley account, a Dropbox account, and the Goodreader app. In Mendeley, I set preferences to save papers in a folder in Dropbox. In the Goodreader app, I sync the papers folder in Dropbox (I'm not sure if I'm doing this part right) from choose server then Dropbox account. Then when I open a paper from there, the papers are blurry and of a low resolution. I have the new Ipad and when I open papers from Safari for example, the retina display is crisp and sharp and really nice to read (except I can't annotate from there). Do you have the same problem or am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

I am using Dropbox to connect Goodreader to Mendeley, actually. The apps now have better integration, however, than when I first wrote that post. Your comments make me realize I should probably revisit that post. Maybe when I save up my pennies for a new iPad, right?

Does GoodReader integrate directly with Mendeley, or are you storing your PDFs on a dropbox folder and using dropbox? I'm currently using iAnnotate and dropbox, but then need to manually move the annotated files into the Mendeley library (replacing the non-annotated version if it already exists).

Comment on Pretty Sure Badges Aren’t the Answer to Our Motivation Problem by Andrea Zellner

Fri, 09 Mar 2012 01:36:13 +0000

Michael, thanks so much for commenting. I agree that the personal guidance is so crucial in these types of online spaces. My biggest concern is that we are taking kids who are already intrinsically motivated and intervening with a badge which, depending on the kid, may or may not decrease motivation and increase other negative outcomes like cheating. I guess for me I really want proof that we are gaining more than we are risking. I think badges are fun and exciting, but I am not convinced that they are the "magic bullet" answer to our problems with assessment and motivation. I think that the badge systems we design need to be aware of these types of motivational pitfalls and include mechanisms that take them into account. I am by no means saying Khan academy is a bad place for kids to spend their time, merely that we need to thoughtfully consider (as you mention) the ways we implement and utilize the resource.
