Research function in google draw

Maybe it has been there for ages, but I just realized this function today when I was trying to tidy up my Google doc… this is the “research” function in Google draw.

In google draw, under tool menu there’s a function called “research”, it basically just call out the google image search, but the coolest thing is you can simply drop those images into the doc where you found useful for your project/research topic…

It all seems just convenient, but the really useful function is the sources of your images. Too often students spend ages to look for the sources of the images they used in their project/paper. When you drag these images in Google draw doc, it stores the original url and when you move the cursor over the images, the links will show up automatically…

Of cause, the golden collaborative nature of Google draw allows student to conduct image researches all at once, so instead of using wishwall for text message sharing, using google draw maybe a better tool for image driven generations.
