This past week, we had the pleasure to attend MassCUE over at Gillette Stadium (it felt a bit odd to be there without a grill, lobsters, and other tailgate accessories, but that’s not important here)…
So, over the next few weeks, we’ll share some of our key learnings in these posts.
This week’s topic: search engines.
For many of us, when we search it’s a reflex movement towards Google, or perhaps Bing — but these represent only a very small slice of the options available. Depending on the task at hand, and your target group of students, there are a wide range of options available. Here are a few (followed by a site where you can find all of the engines in one tidy spot).
- The interface is clean – ad free.
- If the site has an icon, it appears next to the entry.
- There are add-ons under the “More” menu – click on Goodies and you get math and science tools, specialized searches and helpful little items sorted by subjects.
