Time To Change How Students Cite Their Work?

Do we need to re-evaluate how bibliographies are presented?
This blog post argues for "bibs" to be presented in a different way - a google doc? QR codes? embedded links? These new modes might make bibliographies more useful and relevant.

"In the modern classroom, student research and creation has taken on a new look. Before, when students created a poster, and then separately handed in a bibliography page to the teacher, justice was done and fair credit was given for the ideas used. However, as widespread sharing of these projects becomes more common, and the internet allows students to reach an audience far beyond the school or classroom, we need to re-evaluate this procedure and address our responsibility to share these sources – not just with the teacher or school, but with all who might consume the project."
